Back to Nature:: Poultry

   
Free-range Chicken

We source the chicken we sell in the Farm Shop locally from Surrey and Sussex farms who specialise in poultry to bring you white meat which is on a par in quality and provenance to the red meat we produce ourselves.
In the Farm Shop we offer whole free-range chickens, skinless chicken breasts, skin-on supremes and legs, plus seasonal specialities like chicken Kievs, stuffed chicken parcels, a seasonal variety of chicken sausages and breaded chicken burgers, kebabs and more.



Christmas Turkey

At Shabden Park Farm we rear Bronze turkeys for Christmas. We keep exclusively bronze-feathered birds due to their richer tasting meat.
We buy the turkey poults at about four weeks old from a Kent breeder and rear them from July to December. We allow our turkeys to reach their full size naturally before we start to fatten them for Christmas - we do not give them growth promoters or any other additives.This produces a plump bird with a superior taste which has been allowed to develop naturally.

Our turkeys are sold oven-ready and range from 4.5kg (9lbs) right up to 12kg (26lbs). £12.50/kg for whole bronze turkeys.

You can order by weight in kilograms or pounds, or number of portions you need when you order, or both. When we prepare your order we make sure we choose a bird to suit. A deposit is required to secure your turkey, and the balance will be charged when the bird is collected.

We begin taking orders for turkeys around October and we recommend you place your order by early December to ensure you get your choice. After mid-December we still take orders, however the choice may be limited.

Turkey breast joints

Our boned and rolled turkey breast joints, wrapped in your choice of bacon, and stuffed if you prefer, are perfect for easy carving and can be cut to size. This is a popular choice for couples and families with small children, but a whole turkey breast can feed up to 15 adults, making it a good choice for party catering too. £12.95/kg for Turkey Breast, stuffed or unstuffed.

Christmas Goose

Our farm-reared, traditional, free-range goose is a popular choice amongst our customers for their Christmas dinner. Goose is a rich, dark poultry meat with a crispy skin, with the bonus of lots of fat which you can collect during cooking into jars and which will make perfect roast potatoes for several months afterwards.
We buy day-old chicks from a Cambridgeshire breeder in June and rear them free-range until December. We allow our geese to reach their full size naturally before we start to fatten them for Christmas - we do not give them growth promoters or any other additives. This produces a superior taste which has been allowed to develop naturally, and is tender and full of flavour.

Our geese are sold oven-ready and weigh between 5 and 7kg (9-15lbs approx.) Free-range geese are £12.95/kg.

You can order by weight in kilograms or pounds, or number of portions you need when you order, or both. When we prepare your order we make sure we choose a bird to suit. A deposit is required to secure your goose, and the balance will be charged when the bird is collected.

We begin taking orders for geese around October and we recommend you place your order by early December to ensure you get your choice. After mid-December we still take orders, however the choice may be limited.

Christmas Game Birds

We also sell free-range duck, pheasant, guinea fowl and other game birds at Christmas and throughout the winter months.
