Taste Farmers Market New Zealand Awards - Westwood Chickens - 2013 Highly Commended from the Butchery.
Judged by Top New Zealand Chefs.
"We will never eat another type of chicken again unless it comes from a Westwood Farm, tasty, plump, flavorsome, the correct texture for chicken, vibrant, fresh and why would anybody eat barn raised chicken again! ! Westwood have for years set the bench mark for NZ poultry and yet again they lead by example with the tastiest dark meat and sweetest livers in NZ. Real grubs, real worms and real free - ranging are why this poultry tastes so good.......and it is of course from Canterbury"
