Barn Reared Large Brisbourne Chicken (Capon)
£35.00 – £50.00
As with our Geese, we source our barn reared chickens from Brisboune in Shropshire. These large birds (commonly referred to as a capon) make a great alternative to turkey and are perfect for smaller families. Full of flavour and succulent when cooked.
We recommend you allow 0.6kg per person.
Our chickens have been reared on-farm, bedded down daily on fresh home-produced barley straw. The chickens feed ad lib on home produced wheat (grown to Farm Assured standards) and a specially prepared corn ration.
Whilst not free-range, barn reared poultry provides high standards of animal welfare.
They will have reached maturity as a traditional table bird, having lived much longer than a supermarket broiler chicken.
Our chickens are full of flavour and succulent – you remember, ‘how chicken used to taste’?
