A whole chicken with the backbone removed. Also, known as butterflying, spatchcocking flattens the bird so that it cooks more quickly - perfect on the barbecue. Our butchers leave the sternum in, which can be removed at home for even faster, flatter cooking. 

This is a proper bird. Free range, naturally reared and free of growth hormones, our farmers' birds live for nearly twice as long as a supermarket bird. Eating one of these birds is a joy, the breasts are super tender, while the dark meat in the legs delivers a glorious, slightly gamey, flavour. 

Minimum weight: 1.3kg

All of our meat is cut fresh to order by our butchers.

Everything is available for next day delivery as long as you order by 1.30pm.
