Our free-range cockerel is a tasty twist on traditional poultry. The meat is succulent and full-flavoured, deeper and richer than chicken, but lighter than goose. Reared naturally in the idyllic British countryside, the birds are free to roam while foraging from nature's larder, in particular, apples from neighbouring orchards that gives the meat a sweet yet natural flavour. These happy birds bring you the most succulent and rich meat that's just the ticket for indulgent Christmas dining. For optimum taste, our free-range cockerels are reared for a minimum of 80 days to intensify the natural flavour of these carefully reared birds. Try pot roasting for ease with pancetta, garlic and herbs and serving with all the trimmings. Each bird comes with the giblets, for making a classic seasonal gravy.

All of our Christmas range delivered between the 19th Dec to 23rd Dec is guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products containing pastry which are pre-frozen. 48 hour deliveries (Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on dispatch times.

How to cook our free-range cockerel

To cook, roast as you would your Christmas turkey, stuffing with festive herbs and citrus and basting regularly to keep the bird moist. Allow to rest before carving, for at least half the cooking time to ensure optimum tenderness. Be sure to download our recipe tips for cooking times and serving tips.

About the cut

Whole Cockerel

Grown to full maturity of 80 days using a slow growing breed of chicken which is carefully selected for its ability to thrive outdoors and live twice as long as commercial chickens. Here, they are free to forage for food which is supplemented with grains as they mature slowly. The process of game hanging naturally intensifies the flavour of the meat to ensure the best texture and rich finish for the whole cockerel.
