Chicken reared on real farms by real farmers
All of our chickens are reared by the Soanes family and their farming neighbours. They use four generations of arable farming expertise to grow the finest wheat to feed the chickens and their animal husbandry experience to deliver exceptionally tasty chicken from our farms to your business

All of our chickens are processed today and delivered tomorrow using our own fleet of vehicles and staff. From farm to fork within 24 hours – you can’t get fresher than that. Our chickens are air-chilled and prepared to order, giving you the freshest chicken possible, with a longer-lasting shelf life...naturally.

We are BRCGS and Red Tractor accredited
We are proud to be accredited under the following internationally recognised schemes and work hard to exceed the standards set:
We are proud to have attained the highest grade of the BRCGS (British Retail Consortium) Food Safety Standard every year since we were first audited in 2014.
