The Herb Fed Story
When we started farming the aim was simple – to produce ‘a bird with taste’ and offer something rather special. We are excited to have achieved this!
Herb Fed was founded by Edward Wilkinson, chartered surveyor turned farmer! Edward left London in the credit crunch and with farming in his blood, returned to Yorkshire to develop his own business.
On top of their natural cereal based feed, free from additives and growth promoters, we have adapted our bird’s diet to introduce fresh herbs. The herbs are a by-product produced locally, by Edwards Aunt’s herb company – Herbs Unlimited.
We are proud to be the only producers in the country feeding our poultry on this diet. By maintaining the highest possible animal welfare standards and enhancing their diet with fresh herbs, our birds have a flavour that is difficult to beat.
“They (Herb Fed Chickens) are juicy and absolutely delicious”
“These Herb Fed turkeys taste like turkey used to”
“There is a definite and discernible difference in the taste of Herb Fed chicken and what a fantastic example of co-operation between local producers.”
“Herb Fed Yorkshire Bronze is a mighty clucker”
“Yorkshire Herb Fed Chicken; this is a serious product”
“Many thanks for the turkey; it was fresh, firm and beautifully presented. I followed the cooking instructions and it tasted moist and remained fresh over several days. I would recommend your birds to anyone who wanted a quality product.”
“I cook a lot of Herb Fed Chickens, they are a fantastic bird with a wonderful flavour”
“Happy New Year to you both! Our Herb Fed bird was amazing and we had enough left to freeze, hence #christmasdinnertake2 this Sunday!
“I was curious to see if the Herb Fed chicken lived up to the same standards. Cooked sous-vide (that’s in a sealed bag in a water bath for those of us that don’t know the fancy lingo!) and then finished in the Josper grill, this chicken was so moist and so tasty and right up there with the steak.”
“The jury was unanimous in their verdict using vocabulary like:- succulent, tasty, moist, WOW, same thing next year, Edward and Emma are the best, product of Gods’ own country.”
