Our Heritage chickens are single origin, which means they all come from the same farm.

These chickens are small-batch, ethically raised, and enjoy longer, free-ranging lives in the woodlands of the Kiss family farm, ‘Meramie’, Wellington, New South Wales. They grow naturally at a slower pace, allowing for harmonious organ, muscle, and bone development over 14-18 weeks. The entire process, from start to finish, takes place in the family-owned farm abattoir, ensuring a chemical-free production. Kim and Bryan breed, grow, and process the only remaining original Sommerlad genetics all on farm.

Outdoor reared, happy, healthy natural chooks, free to roam whenever they like. These meat chickens are an excellent choice if you want a truly natural, slow-grown chicken that is full of flavour and reminiscent of the chickens of yesteryear.

Multiple award-winning Sommerlad chickens are hard to find and highly sought after. They look, cook, and taste unlike any other chicken available in Australia.

One of the most noticeable differences between Sommerlad Heritage chickens and traditional Cobb/Ross chickens is that the legs are much longer and more powerful, and so much more flavourful with real ‘dark meat’. If you like Drumsticks, you’ll love these. Save the bones in your freezer until you have enough to make a pot of thick, rich, stock.

Each carton holds 12-13kg of legs packed in 1kg bags (5-6 legs per bag). Drumsticks are large, and 2-3 per serving is more than generous.
