What is “Free Range”? 9 November 2020 Supplier Spotlight This week we’re showcasing our amazing free range chickens, supplied by Packington Free Range. The welfare of their birds is at the forefront of everything they do, which fits perfectly with our ethos. The Hairy Bikers called their chickens “some of the happiest in Britain”. Their birds are housed in spacious, specially developed sheds overnight to protect them from predators such as foxes. At first light the sheds are opened and the birds spill out onto 200 acres of English pasture, where they are free to graze, play and socialise until sundown……what a life! Packington’s philosophy is simple – what’s good for their chickens and the land will naturally be good for us and better for their customers. It’s this simple philosophy that enables them to produce the most succulent, richly flavoured meat, often lost in today’s intensive farming methods. We’re really pleased to be able to work closely with a supplier with values so close to ours.
