Thrilled to announce we have won a Gold Star in the 2019 Great Taste Awards for our Handmade Free Range Chicken, Sage & Onion Sausage Roll.
Free Range Poultry
Our birds really are different!
At Pastures Farm we produce top quality poultry free range on the farm with all the birds enjoying the outdoors on grass in a natural environment.
Throughout the year we rear Chickens, Ducks and Guinea Fowl and at Christmas we have our Norfolk Bronze Turkeys and Geese.
All our processing carried out on the farm so zero food miles, then the meat is hung for up to 10 days to achieve that matured flavour. We have skilled butchers on site who prepare the birds and make them oven ready for you.
Buy online, in store or at a farmers market
We attend farmers markets on a regular basis where we have not only our free range poultry for sale but many other lines from our farm shop, from home-made pies and cakes to succulent joints of meat from respected local producers.
Or you can visit our farm shop on the farm between Yardley Hastings and Olney Wednesday to Saturdays 9-5pm.
If you just can’t wait or want to pre-order your poultry then you can order online and we can deliver your order via courier or you can collect it at the nearest farmers market to you.

At Pastures Farm we produce top quality poultry. We rear our Free Range birds on the farm enjoying the outdoors on grass in a natural environment and our Barn Reared birds have clean dry straw daily with lots of space.

We sell mainly at Farmers Markets locally and deliver to Farm Shops in a 40 mile radius. A small number of local shops stock our produce and similarly a few local restuarants.
We also take part in many local events cooking up delicious Duck and Chicken Wraps, Chicken Satays, Tandoori Chicken, Homemade Sausages and Chicken Burgers.
