Sommerlad Heritage Chicken Breasts – Skin On

Price: $38.75 per kg
Deposit Due Now: $15.00

Because Sommerlad chickens grow slowly, and in their natural environment, they reach a variety of differing shapes, sizes, and skin colouring. All chickens are processed after 12-15 weeks fully pastured life, regardless of size. Like people, a naturally grown animal will have variances in appearance, body shape, and fat layering. Our chickens are bred, raised and grown specifically for the Brisbane market. Offal is available by request and by separate order.

Breasts are large, and 1 per person will be more than generous. Each breast is sold skin on. This product is sold by final weight and each pack contains 2 or 4 breast portions and weighs from 750g to 1.3kg. Pay the deposit amount to secure your order, and we will contact you to confirm the final order weight, price, outstanding amount payable and any special requests. This product is frozen.

Product Details

Multiple award-winning Sommerlad Heritage chickens are exclusively bred by just five (5) authorised Sommerlad farmers spread across Australia. These are an exclusive, prestige chicken and advance orders are highly recommended. Unlike the standard white chickens (Cobb or Ross) available from almost all meat chicken farms in Australia, Sommerlad table birds are bred on farm using heritage genetics, live longer, free ranging lives, and are processed and hand finished chemical free. 

Sommerlad chickens look, cook and taste completely different from any chicken available to Australia. They are fully pastured, free ranging heritage breeds, reminiscent of the famous Bresse and Label Rouge chickens from France, and perfect for those seeking deeply flavoured natural poultry the way chicken used to be. Sommerlad chickens are used in some of the best restaurant kitchens around Australia. 

All Hand Sourced Sommerlad chickens come direct from the breeding farm and carry PROOF certification. No hormones, growth promotants, chemical intervention, no synthetics or lot feeding.  Just 100% natural chicken, the way it used to be. 


We are proud to be Brisbane’s sole distributor of Sommerlad Heritage Chicken and a small range of Sommerlad ready-to-eat products as made by our farmers.

About the Sommerlads

Michael-and-Katherine-Sommerlad

Michael & Kathryn Sommerlad - Founders of Sommerlad Chicken

Until November 2017 the Sommerlad family personally managed, bred, and developed their exclusive heritage table poultry for the Australian market. Diverse pedigree strains, specifically bred to thrive in free-range pasture rearing environments, mean they are well suited to Australian climatic conditions. Sommerlad chickens are, by nature, active foragers. They boast long, strong legs, colourful plumage and walk tall and proud due to pasture grazing and a natural diet.​ Unlike commercial strains, Sommerlad birds are naturally slow grown for 10-12 weeks before processing.

Michael Sommerlad now consults to each of the Sommerlad authorised farmers, providing assistance, guidance and support as this major milestone continues gather traction in our food system. At a time when nearly all chicken farmed and eaten in our country comes from the same imported genetic stock, Sommerlad chicken represents a quiet revolution in Australian chicken farming.

Hand Sourced Sommerlad chickens are bred, grown and processed for our Brisbane market, and are exclusively available through our food service division.
