We are delighted to introduce our new soy free chicken from our
long term friend and partner, Dr Paul
Talling of Loose Birds, who rears a slow-growing flock of
free-ranging chickens in the North Yorkshire Moors.
Soy has been used to feed livestock for many years, containing
all the essential amino acids and complete proteins a chicken needs
to grow. However, most soy is being shipped from unsustainable
sources across the globe, which in recent years has increased
demand for soy-free chicken.
Paul has been searching for a way to rear his flock without the
use of soy in their feed, researching and trailing alternative,
sustainable solutions. After many setbacks, Paul cracked the code
and is now proudly 100% soy-free.
This is chicken as it should be: plump, succulent and with
proper flavour owing to its rich diet. These happy birds are reared
with total freedom to roam this farm set on the edge of the North
York Moors National Park. Slowly nurtured with a much longer life
that other commercially reared chickens, this really has to be
tasted to appreciate the exceptional quality. Perfect for roasting
whole as a Sunday lunch, with plenty for leftovers.
