– Producer Reviews –

I am very unhappy with the treatment I received when trying to obtain a bird from Essex Birds for Christmas 2012. I visited the site personally and my name & telephone number were taken and I was told I could collect a bird before Christmas. I emailed and 'phoned on my return home to ensure confirmation but received no replies. I then contact 2 of the outlets that Big Barn claim sell Essex Birds. The first was unsure and the second, whilst very very helpful was told by Essex Birds that they would not deliver a single bird to their outlet, although it is only a couple of miles away! Left without a bird immediately before christmas I visited Holts butchers in Witham as recommended by Oliver's Nursery and was able to buy a chicken in time for Christmas. I'm sure that the birds produced by Essex Birds are really nice - but how do you get your hands on one? I think they need to get a grip of their customer relations. Do not rely on Essex Birds for your Christmas dinner!

The Game Pie Mix is the best thing I have tasted. I will never buy any Poultry from anywhere but Essex Birds. Chelmsford

I bought one at St. Albans farmers market, it was great with amazing taste and texture. The pop -up timer they supply with the bird is so helpful as I had never cooked a chicken before. It was cooked to perfection

Excellent value for money- unlike supermarket chickens that tend to shrink when roasted they keep their size; the real chicken flavour is unbeatable too!
