Product information

Packington Free Range Chicken: 


At Packington Free Range we firmly believe that what is good for the animals and the land will naturally be good for us and better for our customers.

 

This is the philosophy of our great grandfather before us and we believe passionately in provenance, sustainable and ethical farming which fuels our drive to create an environmentally sound and welfare orientated farm,


 This see's all of the farm we look after in environmental schemes, which helps encourage the biodiversity on our farm, in fact a RSPCA survey on our farm in 2012 showed that the number of different bird species had increased by 300% over a 5 year period!


 We have also installed solar panels to help further reduce our carbon footprint.


 All of this allows us to continue to farm the land here, in Staffordshire, for generations to come.


 It's this simple philosophy that enables us to produce the most succulent, richly flavoured meat, often lost in today's intensive farming methods. We know you'll enjoy it.

 

Rob and Alec Mercer.

Good

Delicious. Part cooked in a slow cooker and finished off in the oven. Lovely and moist and enjoyed by everyone. Nice large bird but I would rather that and have cold than a small bird and not have enough to go round, the dog got a good portion too.

Lovely chicken

I have bought Packington chickens a few times now. Unbelievable difference compared to standard supermarket chicken. Texture is different, taste is massively different, you even need to eat less of it because it is way more satisfying. It loses very little in the way of water during cooking, though you do have juices for gravy - the skin doesn't go all loose and wrinkly like on other birds I have had in the past. My one complaint is the size of this thing. I ordered a medium so expected around 1.8 kg as I wanted a slightly smaller one this week. I got a 2.318 kg one...my last large one was 2.4 so yeah, not much difference...glad it was on offer! Tastewise though, I cannot complain at all. This is what chicken SHOULD taste like.

Way oversize.

I love Packingtons chickens, but I bought this one despite having two large ones in freezer because I wanted a medium sized one for 3 or 4 people. The one delivered weighed over 2.4 kg, way over the specified maximum of 2.1, and bang on nominal for a large one. Now I've got three ones in my freezer waiting for when I have more friends. Here's a suggestion, Ocado: Why don't you cap the price at what it would be for the maximum weight. Then I wouldn't be complaining.

Quality Chicken

Bought quite a few of these and by far the best chicken I have ever had, and can tell the difference in quality by the texture. Even the cat goes mad for it, and when he smells it cooking sits and waits by the oven for his share which has never done with any other chicken I have ever cooked. Bit surprised by the negative reviews to be honest. Packington pork joints are also very good and worth a try.
