Organic Whole Chicken
Succulent organic poultry sourced from Otter Valley Poultry. Otter Valley is a family-run business established over 40 years ago, and they use four organic farms across Devon to rear their birds, where the birds roam and forage for red clover and insects with certified organic feed as a supplement, and fine views over the Devon countryside.
All the farms have been chosen because of their peaceful location and natural environment. Otter Valley Poultry believes that it is paramount for chickens to enjoy a stress-free lifestyle.
