Delicious, lean & versatile
Our free range chicken mince is loved for its versatility. Like our turkey mince, it is lean, low in fat, yet absolutely delicious. It has a wonderful ability to really absorb and enhance the flavours it is cooked with, from spicy Asian dishes to Spanish-inspired empanadas.
Why not try swapping to chicken mince for a flavoursome and healthier alternative to your favourite dinners like meatballs, spag bol, burgers or sausage rolls? Because our birds are grown to a minimum of 81 days, they have a a greater flavour and meatier texture.
Fosse 81 Day Total Freedom Chicken
At Fosse Meadows Farm we grow our birds slowly and traditionally. The Fosse 81 Day Total Freedom Chicken is totally free ranging and grown naturally in small flocks to an average of 81 days.
• three times longer than standard commercially reared supermarket chicken.
• four weeks longer than free range.
• two weeks longer than organic birds.
Like the much-admired French chicken, we use three strains of French breeds and grow them to full maturity. This means our birds have longer legs, allowing them to roam and forage on clover rich pasture. There are no pesticides or fertilisers used on the land and no antibiotics or additives in their cereal based diet. Any Soy used is from a certified sustainable source.

The older the bird, the more confidence they have to range further. This ranging (exercise) produces a more athletic chicken. The result is a richer, textured, darker and more succulent meat with stronger nutritionally rich bones too. Just how chicken should and used to taste.
