It's the contrasting flavours and textures that make cooking a whole chicken so satisfying. But what if that's too much meat for you? Opt for a Coombe Farm Organic half chicken instead. You get the benefit of crisp-as-can-be skin (surely the best bit!) combined with both white breast meat and brown leg meat. And don't let the carcass go to waste: simmer it slowly to create a flavour packed broth that makes a tasty lunch or the starting point for another meal.
Reared in the rolling Blackdown hills of Devon, just a hop, skip and jump from Coombe Farm HQ, our organic chickens live in a system with animal welfare at its core. They have the liberty to roam freely in grassy pastures and the safety of secure barns where they can roost at night. Soil Association regulations mean our birds have plenty of room and are never overcrowded, meaning they can follow their natural instincts and aren't stressed or aggressive. The quality of meat produced by this ethical way of farming reflects the natural diet eaten by the birds. You can be assured that you're eating the healthiest and purest product possible.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.
Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
The poultry we sell has been organically reared they are free-range in smaller flocks than other birds, when the animal is ready it is slaughtered and butchered on the farm it was reared on so not to overstress the birds.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

If you love the traditional flavour (and irresistible smell) of roast chicken, go ahead and cook your half bird exactly as you would a whole one. Just be sure to give it less time. You can check it's done by gently twisting the leg. If it comes away easily, it's ready to eat.
