Who we supply

We have been rearing delicious chicken in Yorkshire since 1947 and are proud to work with the best wholesalers, butchers, restaurants, farm shops and caterers throughout the UK. We can supply a wide range of free range and grain fed whole chickens and portions to suit your needs.

Customer first

We work hard to maintain high levels of customer service. Like many businesses, we don’t always get it right, but when we don’t, there’s always someone on hand to reply to your issues swiftly. We use our own team of experienced drivers to deliver chicken six days a week, anywhere in the UK.

Fresh Ideas, Traditional Values

We trade on our exceptional product quality, provenance, exemplary customer service and reliable, nationwide deliveries using our own fleet of vehicles and staff. Our bespoke portioning facility means that we can meet your needs for all cuts and we invest heavily in marketing to help you to sell more. We are constantly investing in new farms and production processes to maintain our market leading quality, value and efficiency.

Chicken reared on real farms by real farmers

All of our chickens are reared by the Soanes family and their farming neighbours. They use four generations of arable farming expertise to grow the finest wheat to feed the chickens and their animal husbandry experience to deliver exceptionally tasty chicken from our farms to your business.

Naturally longer shelf life

All of our chickens are processed today and delivered tomorrow using our own fleet of vehicles and staff. From farm to fork within 24 hours – you can’t get fresher than that. Our chickens are air-chilled and prepared to order, giving you the freshest chicken possible, with a longer-lasting shelf life...naturally.
