Yorkshire Chicken (Free Range & Herb-fed)
We exclusively source all our free range, herb-fed chicken from Edward & Emma Wilkinson's sixty-acre farm in North Yorkshire. They raise truly free range chickens, hand-reared in small flocks with unlimited access to roam outside and exhibit their natural instincts.
A slow-grown approach is at the heart of farming birds with real flavour; contrasting starkly with commercial chicken which is on the shelves within 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 Online Butchers including chicken thighs, breasts and wings. Our selection of free range, herb-fed chicken products are perfect for curries, summer barbecues and roast dinners.
Orders received before 9am are freshly prepared and shipped DPD for next day delivery. We serve the whole of the UK excluding Channel Islands, Northern Ireland and some parts of Scotland.
Our meat has been celebrated in Britain's best restaurant kitchens for over ten years. There are many who claim to work with native breed farmers, but few who can prove it.
Sustainable & traceable
We have partnerships with selected farms and work with carefully selected local abattoirs so we have confidence in the welfare of the animals and full traceability of all our products.
