Yorkshire Cockerel By Loose Birds

Weight: 1 x 3.5kg

Serves: 6

Shelf life: Min 3 days

Available: 1st December – 23rd December



Cockerel is a tasty twist on festive poultry. The meat is succulent and full-flavoured, deeper and richer than chicken, but lighter than goose. Reared naturally in the idyllic countryside surrounding Harome on the North York Moors, the birds are free to roam the fields while foraging from nature's larder. These happy birds bring you the most succulent and rich meat. For optimum taste, the meat is game hung 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 festive trimmings. Each bird comes with the giblets, for making a classic seasonal gravy.

As featured in FT How To Spend It: "It's tender meat has superb depth of flavour - roast it with butter, thyme and lemon, and you will have plenty to crow about."

All of our Christmas range delivered on 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.

About the cut

Whole Cockerel

Dr Paul Talling supplies our cockerels and he closely oversees the hatching and lives of the birds to ensure they plump up nicely in the great outdoors. Here, they are free to forage for food which is supplemented with grains and 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.
