Bantam eggs £2 per dozen.
We also offer seasonal eggs, which will be avaialble in the yard along with the hen eggs. -

We use a French breed of chicken, called the ‘Sasso’. The Sasso has been developed to grow slowly within a free range environment, unlike the British hybrid birds that are used within the fast growing, intensive broiler industry.
We grow all our poultry to 16 or 18 weeks.
All the birds at Hyden Farm are not only reared here but are also killed at home. They have no travelling and we believe this means less stress for the birds. They are then hung, before being processed, for a few days (similar to game) to aid the maturing of the meat. They are then finished ready for the oven.
Poultry is pretty much poultry? Well not quite!! We take a different approach with how we produce our poultry, as we do with all our animals. It all comes down to time - that ellusive commodity!
We don't want to live in a huge house with 10,000+ other people and we don't think our poultry want to do that either. We enjoy the fresh air and pasture that surrounds us, and so do the poultry we rear!
The ducks chicken and guinea fowl are ALL reared outside for 16-18 weeks. You are probably aware that commercial flocks are given 6-8 weeks and they live in artifical light in a huge shed with no fresh air. So why rear them for so much longer if it cost so much more?
With chicken up to 2kg, our birds can feed you for several meals! If you thought chicken was dry and possibly a little tasteless then please give ours a try - it will remind you of roast dinners from when you were little (although the tapioca pudding is optional).
It's not just the chicken though, our guinea fowl can also feed a family of four easily, again this comes down to maturity. It's the same with the ducks.
