Add a smack of flavour to your mid-week meal, or impress on the BBQ, with our free-range drumsticks marinated in your choice of marinade. Because our birds spend 75% of their long lives outside free-ranging, their legs are big and strong, making large, succulent, dark, meaty drumsticks.
Our marinades are homemade, created in our kitchen and inspired by our mother’s recipes. We use simple, fresh, quality ingredients that have no preservatives.

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.
