Love Your Leftovers – Get the best value for money from your Packington Free Range Purchase

Our Packington Free Range recipe cards have always been successful with our butchers, farm shops and customers. Last year, we took the idea further, using Facebook to demonstrate how our products deliver value. We called the series, Love Your Leftovers.

Delivering Value For Money Matters To Us

We’re aware there can be a misconception amongst shoppers, that buying from a butcher is a luxury versus the convenience of a supermarket. However, we really believe our chickens and pork deliver excellent value for money. When tested, our birds contained 8% less water than an equivalent free range supermarket bird. As a result, were better value per 100g of cooked meat.

Feed Your Family For Four Days For Just £1.50 Per Person, Per Meal

So sparked the idea for our Love Your Leftovers Chicken and Pork series. We wanted to see if we could feed a family, a main meal for four days, from one Packington Free Range Chicken or Pork joint, plus a ismple shopping list. In both cases, we did it for less than £1.50 per person, per meal.

Documenting the series with photos and posts across social media, we found interest in the concept far exceeded our expectations. Many followers actually requested we share the recipes.

After sharing the recipes online, we thought they might be a useful tool for our customers when buying our products. So, we’ve created a stand-alone Love Your Leftovers recipe card series for both Pork and Poultry. Both will be available from your local Packington butcher from the end of September.

Love Your Leftovers: Chicken

Our chicken series kicks off with a traditional Sunday Roast Chicken, complete with crispy roasties, stuffing and plenty of veg.  From the leftovers, we created a hearty Chicken, Leek and Mushroom Pie, a perfect fakeaway Sweet and Sour Chicken, and a healthy Chicken Broth with Pasta, Pea and Mint.

Love Your Leftovers: Pork

Similarly, the Pork series started on a Sunday with a roast pork joint, boasting perfect crackling and all the trimmings. We followed up with Greek Pork and Vegetable Kebabs, a smokey Pork, Chickpea and Chorizo stew, and a healthy Pork Ramen Noodle Soup.
