Feeding Chickens is a highly perfected science that ensures a maximum intake of energy for best results in growth and fat production.

High-quality and well-balanced protein sources produce a maximum amount of muscle, organ, skin, and feather growth.

Farm assurance is product certification for agricultural products that emphasizes the principles of quality assurance. All farm assurance schemes claim to ensure high standards of animal welfare, although there is great variation in the requirements that relate to how animals should be kept and cared for.

Herb Fed Free Range Chicken

The Herb Fed Story

The aim was simple – to produce ‘a bird with taste’ and offer something rather special. We are excited to have achieved this!
Herb Fed was founded by Edward Wilkinson, chartered surveyor turned farmer! Edward left London in the credit crunch and with farming in his blood, returned to Yorkshire to develop his own business.
He wanted to produce poultry of quality, but with a special difference that set it apart from others. He could also see the shift from mass produced supermarket meat, to a call for provenance and traceability.
We recognize the part husbandry plays in ensuring great tasting produce and the importance of knowing where your food has come from.

Herb Fed poultry is traditionally farmed, hand-fed and kept in small flocks so that they are truly free to forage for food and roam their Yorkshire pasture.
Our birds have something else rather special about them – their unique diet which includes over 10 varieties of fresh herbs.
On top of their natural cereal-based feed, free from additives and growth promoters, we have adapted our bird’s diet to introduce fresh herbs. The herbs are a by-product produced locally, by Edwards Aunt’s herb company – Herbs Unlimited.
We are proud to be the only producers in the country feeding our poultry on this diet. By maintaining the highest possible animal welfare standards and enhancing their diet with fresh herbs, our birds have a flavor that is difficult to beat.

Because our poultry has had time to grow slowly, reaching maturity naturally, the taste and texture has had time to develop further.
The fresh herbs we introduce really enhance the natural flavor of the meat giving it a greater depth and unique taste.
They live in mobile huts in small flock sizes, are hand-fed and bedded up daily with fresh straw.
