Cockerel Feedback

So after a very busy Christmas period we have finally got all our feedback from our cockerel in. We were so pleased with the feedback we got and most importantly we were happy that people enjoyed the cockerels. This year was the first year that we did our farm gates sales and we really enjoyed meeting everybody, we hadd a great time listening to christmas songs, eating mince pies andd drinking mulledd wine with you!

Here are a few examples of the feedback we got.

‘The cockerel was amazing and we will definitely be ordering from you again this year’ (Fiona Coulson)


‘We’ve had one of your cockerels the other year which is why we came back for another. The cockerel, the service and the delivery were impeccable (sorry about the pun!)’ (John Lininton)


‘We are very conventional and don’t do anything fancy with the cockerel – but then it doesn’t need much adding. We just drizzle with oil and roast. As in previous years it was just perfect – very tender, moist, and flavoursome – whether served hot or cold. The remains were made into soup and curry for freezing, and again proving to be very tasty.’ (Janet Matthews)


‘I would just like to say how happy we were with our first cockerel!! It was lovely and tasty – plenty big enough – in fact your generous sizes were excellent. Many thanks for making our Christmas dinner so tasty – we will definitely be ordering direct from you again’. (Mandy Beeby)


‘the cockerel was fabulous, much better than turkey. We were impressed with the delivery, presentation and above all the taste. Thanks very much, we will buy again’. (Rod Bird)


‘Fabulous flavour, moist, tender, and truly scrumptious. Would like one for Easter! Also the delivery was prompt and very stress free. Pigs in blankets were heavenly too’ (Kat Slade)


‘The cockerel was fantastic. Really well presented in the box and absolutely delicious. I will definitely be recommending yourselves in the future’. (Jayne Guthrie)


‘As usual the cockerel was fantastic. The packaging is done so carefully and the bird stays in perfect condition for the big day. The quality of the meat is outstanding. It also – once one has scraped the carcass clean – makes a wonderful stock which is now in my freezer’. (Peter de Bolla)


‘We were pleased with our cockerel. It arrived safely ad it was packaged very well. The bird cooked really nicely and was absolutely delicious! This was our second Packington bird and we will definitely do it again’. (Sue Richards)
