Bones for making the very flavorsome broths, stocks and soups
By making your own stock not only can you be 100% certain what's in there, but you can also enjoy a depth of flavour that's totally authentic and second to none. As the key ingredient in broths, soups, gravies and consommés, stock from an organic chicken carcass cannot be beaten for taste. Once you've made it, you'll never go back to a stock cube again.

Sustainability is one of the key elements in the Coombe Farm philosophy so it's important to us that nothing goes to waste. That means making use of every piece of every carcass. We don't chuck bits away because they're not prime cuts. Rather we extract goodness and value from everything a carcass has to offer. The bones from our organic chickens are full of flavour and packed with goodness. That's why we believe making a bone stock is one of the most important uses for any carcass.

No. You can leave a message with your order telling us where you would like to have your box placed.

Our products will stay at the same temperature for up to 40 hours, so just make sure that you can pick up your order within that time.
Our couriers will send you a text message or email, which ever you prefer, giving you an hour slot when your box will arrive. If that doesn’t suit you, some options will be provided to make your delivery more convenient.

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.

To really maximise flavour, roast your carcass in a moderate oven until it's just starting to brown. Then transfer to a stockpot, cover with boiling water and add the vegetables of your choice. Carrots, onions and celery are traditional, but feel free to add any root veg (well, probably not beetroot...) as well as garlic and big handfuls of herbs. You might want to go easy on seasoning if you plan to use your stock as a basis for soups and gravies. Let everything bubble away on the gentlest of heats for a good few hours before straining off the liquid and discarding the bones and veg. Use straight away or portion into bags or plastic trays and freeze for use later.
