Our Free-range Chicken

A couple of weeks ago, we made a visit to our chicken supplier, Springfield Poultry, perched in the lush countryside just on the outskirts of Leominster, Herefordshire.

Similar to us, their ethos is simply to supply their customers with great tasting quality produce, that has been ethically reared. These qualities have helped the Mee family to gain over 50 years experience of poultry rearing and  we are proud to stock their produce in all of our stores.

Their chickens all enjoy a free-range life and during our visit, we could see just how much freedom they have. Each morning, they are left to roam the lush grassy fields and at night they are kept away from the foxes as they are securely shut in their spacious barns. High welfare standards for their birds is always a priority.

Chicken of course is a household staple; it’s versatile, tasty and has lots of nutritional benefits.  Indeed we believe our free-range birds have far lower stress levels, far more exercise roaming and so are far more healthy birds overall, that can only be good for our food chain and our health ultimately.

In all of our stores, look out for the Springfield sticker on our whole chickens, a proud sign of good rearing. You’ll know you’ll be getting the best- delicious produce that you can feel good about buying.

As a special November treat for you, we are offer 10% off our whole Free Range Chickens for 2 weeks from 15/11 – 30/11. Pop into any of our stores to take advantage and don’t forget you can also order your Christmas chicken, just ask for a Christmas brochure in-store now.
