Another multi generational family farm produces the fabulous free-range, corn-fed cockerels and chickens we are proud to supply at Christmas time and throughout the year.
The family farm is fully environmentally soundly run with mixed arable, game cover, woodland, and livestock moving in rotation and allowing fully sustainable and welfare-oriented production.
The cockerels have wonderfully firm, creamy yellow flesh and skin. They are slow-grown, largely outdoors, and produce super chickeny chicken, with outstanding flavour and texture.
The cockerels range in size from 3kg/6lb – which would feed 6 with leftovers, up to about 5.5kg/11lb – to feed about 10 with some leftovers. Although we always try to help everyone, right until the very last moment before the doors close on Christmas Eve, we strongly recommend that you pre-order your Christmas Cockerel if this is your choice this year.
Either telephone us to reserve the size you want for collection from our shops or market stalls in Oakham and Uppingham, or order online for mail order deliveries, local deliveries or click and collect from Rutland and Borough Market.
