Bring Back the Best

Chicken Like It Used to Taste

At Packington, we still remember how chicken used to taste when we were kids, and it’s a standard we’re committed to bringing back!

How We Rear Our Chickens

Our chicks arrive on the farm in small groups, at just one day old. They’re housed in special sheds that have plenty of warm bedding, heating and good ventilation. As the birds grow, the heater is turned down to ensure they become strong and able to adjust to the weather conditions outside.

At about three weeks old, once the birds are strong enough, the shed doors are opened and the birds are free to roam on the range to their heart’s content. But, in the evening they’re brought back into safety, to protect them from night time predators, such as foxes.

All Packington Free Range Chickens roam free on established English pasture, consisting of various grasses and clovers, with strategically placed perches and shelters offering shade, food and water. It’s an idyllic setting and one which every Packington Free Range bird experiences in its lifetime.

Chicken How It Used To Taste

Speedy results or low-cost farming aren’t a priority for us here at Packington. We know that in order to get good end results it takes care, time and investment. Which is why we can say with conviction that a Packington Free Range chicken will taste how chicken used to taste – full of flavour.

Our Farming Ethos

Animal welfare and environmental sustainability are genuine priorities for us at Packington Free Range. Our rigorous animal welfare techniques ensure that from one day old, to fully-grown we look after our chickens with great care at every stage of their development; ensuring that nothing is compromised. Just like the generations before us.
