FAQs

  • Organic chicken has been reared in accordance to a set of organic high-welfare standards. These organic standards cover not just the bird’s housing, the amount of space they have and the way they are treated, but also what they are fed, how they are transported and eventually slaughtered. At Coombe Farm Organic, our slow-grown Hubbard 57 chickens are 100% organic. Under the current Soil Association standards, chicks can be taken from a conventional system providing they are less than 3 years old and reared organically to 70 days. We wanted to go one step further to stick to our ethos in supporting other organic producers, so we source our chicks from an organic breeding flock meaning they are certified from birth. We never use antibiotics on our chickens because our organic farming system provides a natural environment for our birds to thrive without the need for preventative medication: room to roam, a naturally foraged balanced diet, clean water and high hygiene standards.

  • When choosing any meat to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are a number of studies that suggest organic chicken is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic chicken is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic farming to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional chickens, organic birds are only given antibiotics if absolutely necessary, rather than routinely, as they are in lower welfare systems to prevent spread of disease.

  • Organic chicken and regular chicken are reared very differently, to different standards of welfare. At Coombe Farm Organic our organic chicken is Soil Association certified which is considered the highest welfare organic certification. All of our chickens are reared in a system that allows the birds free access to pastures where they can roam during the day using their natural instincts. The chickens are grown slowly for approximately 70 days. In intensive systems, which rely heavily on genetic breeding and antibiotics, birds are ready at just 35 days which is why their meat has very little flavour. We believe the slow approach is better for the welfare of our birds, and results in the delicious flavour you can try for yourself. 

  • In the UK, we now eat more chicken than any other meat. Which means the production of chicken has become more and more industrialised to keep up with demand. We rear our chickens in a free-range, organic environment and to the highest welfare standards. That means the birds have the freedom to roam outdoors during the day, with the shelter and safety of houses at night and in bad weather. We source our chicks from an organic breeding flock meaning they are certified from birth.
