British Quail Meat from Norfolk Quail

Our quail are particularly succulent and flavoursome having been bred and reared in a “free to fly” environment in bespoke housing which is fully temperature and ventilation controlled to provide optimum conditions.

They’re fed on specially produced rations from a local feed mill located just 8 miles from our farm. The feed is carefully formulated to suit the slow growing conditions and activities that quail enjoy: flying, scratching in the litter and running freely in the large areas provided for them.

We have a bespoke Food Standards Agency approved meat processing plant and abattoir on our farm, which provides a stress-free process from farm to fork. It’s unusual in the UK for a farm to breed, rear, process and market their produce end to end. Our model is based closely on the French traditions for quail production, with the exception that our birds are given twice as long to reach their full potential.
