Full of flavour, and with lots of succulent meat to feed your family and guests. Our Free Range Cockerel makes a great alternative to turkey for your Christmas lunch or special occasion. [more...]

The cockerels roam freely through the green pastures and are reared with the highest regard to their welfare. A natural cereal diet rich in corn delivers a healthy, happy and stress-free bird with a wonderful golden glow and bags of flavour.

Orders that include Cockerels are restricted to delivery on 19th or 20th of December, please select date at checkout.

Pre-heat oven to 190ºC/375ºF or gas mark 5 (180ºC for fan assisted ovens). Calculate cooking time allowing 30-40 minutes per kg . Spread all over with butter and season with salt & pepper. Place the bird upside down in a large roasting tin. This will ensure that the juices run in to the breast of the meat, keeping it moist. Loosely cover with silver foil and roast the bird for the calculated time, basting occasionally with the pan juices 45 minutes before the end, turn the cockerel back up the right way, remove the silver foil and continue to cook until the skin becomes crispy. Ensure that the centre of the bird is piping hot and that the juices run clear

Keep refrigerated between 0-5°C. Once opened consume within 2 days. Suitable for freezing on day of purchase, use within a month.

This is one big chicken and tasted superb. Any misgivings that we were just having Chicken for Christmas dinner were soon dispelled.

This is the second time we have purchased a free range cockerel from you and whilst we have yet to tuck into this one, we are saving this treat until New Year’s Eve when members of the family will be travelling here on the promise of a good meal. On the past experience, we know their journeys wil not be in vain. The Huntmans pie was first class and enjoyed by all on Christmas Eve and the packaging a marvel to behold. Be assured we shall come again in 2019

OMG words cannot describe the flavour and texture of this bird, it was so moist and tender . We will never buy Turkey again. You must try it it's not much difference in price of a good Turkey. So good value for money.
