Jason and Michaela Wise and their young family have been farming and processing traditionally reared free range chicken for many years. Their chickens are reared in the true sense of “free range” as opposed to some of the modern interpretations of free range. This means the chickens are kept in small flocks and sheltered in moveable ‘Arks’ so their pasture is always fresh. And because the Arks are so well insulated this provides the chicken with a shelter, which is cool in summer and warm in the winter. A sophisticated fencing gives the chicken the option to roam outside both day and night.
The chickens are reared at Roosters of Babylon, Silverton, Devon.
