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.

    Delicious Fosse Chicken and Fosse Meadows Cockerel is superb, definitely my favourite!

  2. Avatar SR says:

    Really good chicken – and the cockerel is worth trying too

  3. Avatar Iain Baughan says:

    We have been getting our turkeys and chickens from Fosse Meadows since they started. Our friend Richard Guy who ran the Real Meat Company and who had exacting standards of welfare and feed ethics said “If I lived in Leicestershire that is where I would buy my poultry.” Praise indeed!

  4. Avatar Sarah says:

    Great to see the boys getting a look in, they are usually bumped off at birth, not here! And they are tasty too.

  5. Avatar Izzy says:

    I can highly recommend Fosse Meadows free-range, slow-grown and high welfare chicken, cockerel and Christmas turkey. The turkey is grown to high Golden Turkey standards, which meant I had a superb Christmas bird that was easy to cook and everyone enjoyed the meat’s outstanding rich taste and succulence! I like to support local farmers – it’s so easy when you know the care and attention that goes into the rearing of these birds. Their free-range chicken and cockerel are such vastly superior products when compared to free-range birds in supermarkets. I can see why their chicken won a Good Housekeeping Award! All Fosse Meadows birds are absolutely delicious!
