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, as with all meat, is a good source of protein. However the chicken liver itself, provides us with more specific health benefits, high in iron, folic acid and zinc. Chicken can help prevent and treat anaemia, due to its concentrated source of nutrients. Chicken liver will be especially useful for you if you are recovering from surgery. Being rich in zinc, chicken can benefit growth (especially young children), and our immune system. People who eat little, or the elderly, ill or anorexic will find eating chicken extremely beneficial to them due to the high level of zinc.
We guarantee that your order of meat and fish will have 3 days before its expiry date, including the day you have it delivered. All of our meat and fish can be frozen. To roast your chicken, allow 25 minutes per 500g plus 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 190C/374F/gas 5. Cook thoroughly until the juices run clear when pierced with a skewer and there is no pink meat. Chicken should be kept at a very cool temperature, wrapped and kept away from other foods, in the bottom of the fridge. Chicken can be frozen, but should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking. Cooked chicken should not be reheated once it has cooled -any leftovers should be cooled to room temperature, refrigerated within 2 hours and eaten within two days.Higher Fingle Farm vac-pack all their chicken pieces as this keeps the packaging to a minimum. Upon opening, vac-packed chicken can sometimes have a strong smell, but don't worry, remove the plastic and let the meat rest for 10 or 15 minutes and the odour will disappear!
