Our chickens come from Chris Labdon’s Devonshire farm. He’s a fantastic farmer and all round good egg, making sure his chickens have the best possible life. Chris' chicks are healthy and resilient because they’re very active, slow-grown and eat an organic diet. Chris plants trees so his chickens can peck and scratch about and explore (it’s a favourite pastime of chickens). Chris really does go above and beyond to see that his chickens’ quality of life is the best it can be.
Chicken should be kept refrigerated, wrapped and away from other foods in the bottom of the fridge. Chicken can be frozen, but should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking. Our meat and poultry is vac-packed, which keeps the packaging to a minimum. Upon opening, vac-packed meat can sometimes have a strong smell and be darker in colour, but don't worry, remove the plastic & let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes & the odour will disappear and the colour will return to normal. To roast your drummers, place them on a baking tray in a preheated oven at 190C/374F/gas 5 for 30-35 minutes. To barbecue, place on a preheated barbecue for 25-30 minutes, turning occasionally. Cook thoroughly until the juices run clear when pierced with a fork and there is no pink meat. Cooked chicken should not be reheated once it has cooled.
