We offer chickens from two suppliers Sutton Hoo and Phil Truin. These are birds that have enjoyed free range lifestyles and wholesome diets that ensure excellent flavour. Phil Truin supples us with larger birds (6-8 lbs) also Geese for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Sutton Hoo Chickens To produce a Sutton Hoo chicken involves 4 key factors. 1. Breed - Suffolk Whites which are derived from a traditional breed of chicken more suited to growing slowly & living the Sutton Hoo life. 2. Environment - Our chickens our reared in small groups based in mobile houses, lit and ventilated naturally, and made up with fresh dry straw every day. They roam freely over 40 acres of pasture rich in various plant and insect species creating a completely natural environment promoting biodiversity. 3. Diet - They are fed on a natural protein-rich mix of mainly wheat, completely GM-free and without antibiotics, or drugs of any kind. This diet promotes a slower growth and allows the Sutton Hoo Chicken to reach maturity naturally. 4. Age - The average age of a typical intensively grown chicken is 5 weeks and the normal Free Range chicken is 8 weeks old. All the Sutton Hoo chickens reach the age of up to 12 weeks. This allows them to develop naturally, promoting muscle growth from unlimited access to as much exercise as a chicken could desire. There are no restraints or limits in the rearing environment for Sutton Hoo chickens allowing them to behave as normally as the want. Combine all these factors mixed in with a relentless passion from the Sutton Hoo team and a chicken with a delicious full flavour and wonderful texture is produced. Phil Truin Phill's free-range Chickens, Geese and Turkeys are reared from day olds in small batches in freshly strawed barns until they are robust enough to enjoy the meadows outside. They are given the freedom to choose between their barns and the surrounding fields according to the weather. They are tended daily by hand to ensure the highest standards of animal welfare. No chemicals, hormones or growing supplements are given and there are no additives in their drinking water. The fully mature birds are slaughted, dry-plucked and finished by hand on site, then hung in the traditional manner before the butcher prepares them for your table.
