For all the nutrients you get when you serve up a meaty meal, there are 3 big ones that are worth getting to know a little better. Make the right selection at the Butcher’s counter and you’ll be feeling that extra mojo from the food you eat.

We offer three outstanding choices of free-range chicken, all of which are excellent roasters, providing superb yield and exceptional flavour.
