Christmas 2015

We have available this Christms our famous free-range geese, ducks, guinea-fowl and chickens.  They can be ordered here on the website or by phoning Simon on 07968 148 896 or Clare on 07801 132 334.



Great Clerkes Farm is a free-range poultry farm in North Essex.  Chickens, guinea fowl, geese, ducks and pheasant are all reared on the farm. To keep up to date with our news, click below. 


The 17th most famous farmer in Essex?

As well as running the farm, watching the local fauna and flora, captaining The Sampfords cricket team and producing the odd piece of contemporary artwork (of dubious quality), somehow Simon Hughes finds the time to appear on various televisual programmes connected to quality food production - any celebrity chef of calibre wants a connection with Great Clerkes Farm.  In April of this year Brian Turner and Janet Street-Porter came to the farm to record a program about Guinea-fowl farming in the East of England.  The photo above shows them cooking a delicious casserole outside the farm house (Janet is the one without the (bushy) moustache). 


Roast Goose with Spiced Christmas Stuffing

All our geese come with a card with suggested cooking techniques and times and also a delicious apricot stuffing recipe that is a wonderful accompaniment to your goose.  I have also tried this stuffing recipe from the BBC which is another taste sensation when paired up with a perfectly cooked goose.
