Whole Free-Range Chicken

SKU: 1151 Categories: , , Tags: , ,

£8.50 kg

The Hog & Hen free-range bird is held in high regard by all at the Food Hall and it’s no surprise. They are free range and slow matured before being slaughtered, plucked and finished by hand on farm. The skin of these birds is remarkable.

Hog & Hen or Truin birds are for the hungry households
(2.0 to 3.5+ kg)
with plenty of pickings for subsequent meals.

Many customers also prefer the slightly smaller whole bird from Sutton Hoo, which is similarly given the freedom of fresh grass, fresh air and the time to mature; resulting is a superb bird.

Sutton Hoo sizes are typically 2.0 to 3.0kg

MORE DETAILS

Spoilt for choice! Most of our birds come from Hog & Hen in Stonham Aspal or Sutton Hoo (Woodbridge); although we’re still able to get a few from Phil Truin raised in Lavenham.

The meat and skin on the Hog & Hen birds is remarkable as they have been hand-reared from day old chicks, and free to roam, forage and express themselves across large grass meadows. The birds also have access to roomy sheds for shelter overnight. After a maturing slowly, they are slaughtered, plucked and finished by hand on farm before being hung to allow the natural fats to set and intensify the flavour. Processing on farm and delivering direct to the Food Hall ensures quality, minimal transport and that traditional roast.

Come Christmas we also call upon William Grove-Smith (Braintree) for turkey butterflies, and Great Clerkes Farm (Saffron Walden) for duck, geese and the occasional chicken.

Due to the artisan nature of our local farmers, stock of free-range chicken is in short supply Monday to Wednesday. Best order for delivery on a Friday.

    We had a 3kg Turin Chicken last year for the first time and it was excellent and have ordered the same again this year. Vacuum packed for freshness too which was an brilliant idea.
