Fosse Meadows won a rare three gold stars in the Great Taste Awards 2019 for its slow-grown, free-range cockerel. Also, the farm was shortlisted for Best Food Producer in Great Food Club’s 2019 Awards.
Founders Nick and Jacob specialise in slow-grown, free-range chickens (matured for at least 81 days), and 100-plus-day-old cockerels, which run free on their farm in south Leicestershire all year round. They produce slow-grown free-range turkeys, geese and ducks for Christmas.
Fosse’s French-breed chickens and cockerels are fed an additive- and antibiotic-free diet, with access to pesticide-free green pastures and wildflower hedgerows. A Fosse bird
has larger legs because it runs about outside for longer.
In 2019, the Great Taste Awards judge wrote: “Absolutely fantastic; impressive bird; lovely golden colour. Beautifully mouthwatering skin and moist white breast meat. Dark meat is luxurious and slightly gamey. It’s like a super-charged chicken with more flavour!”
Fosse Meadows has also won a Good Housekeeping Award and in 2019 was placed seventh in the Observer Food Monthly Top 50.
