How to roast a Milking Yard Chicken
Milking Yard Farm in Trentham, Victoria. Milking Yard birds are prized for their slow grown, true free-range life. They are pasture-raised on open fields, foraging for grubs and greens. The result is a magnificent bird packed with a flavour reminiscent of the French Bresse chicken. We prefer to slow roast these birds, producing the most tender and flavoursome meat.
