Collection: Free Range, Herb-fed Chicken

We source all our free range, herb-fed chicken exclusively from Edward and Emma Wilkinson's sixty-acre farm in North Yorkshire. They raise truly free range chickens, being hand-reared in small flocks, with access to roam outside and exhibit their natural instincts – foraging bugs and insects in the fields, soaking up the sunshine or, at times, staying out in the rain! A slow-grown approach is at the heart of farming birds with real flavour – their lifespan of 8-9 weeks contrasts starkly with commercial chicken that is on the shelves within only 4 weeks.

Unusually the bird's diet comprises over ten herbs (rocket being their favourite, sage the least!) – the by-product of a local herb farm. The herbs supplement a locally milled, additive-free, cereal-based diet, and give the meat an extra flavour dimension. We wouldn’t describe the chicken meat as tasting ‘herby’, but rather a flavour with depth, an old-fashioned flavour with darker flesh that tastes how chicken should, but rarely does.
Shop for fresh, free range chicken at Swaledale including chicken thighs, breasts and wings. Our selection of free range, herb-fed chicken products are perfect for curries, summer barbecues and roast dinners.
