The best BBQ Delivery Boxes in the UK from small sustainable British Farms

When summer arrives, whether the sun is shining or not, one element is guaranteed: it’s Great British BBQ season. First and foremost, you’ll want to find the best quality meat. We believe the best way to find this is not in a supermarket, but with a specialist BBQ delivery box delivered straight to your door. Ideally, served alongside jacket potatoes and beautifully coloured salads (which we also have covered below).

Here, we recommend some of our favourite summer BBQ boxes from farms that produce high-quality, delicious produce. And they do so through high-welfare and nature-friendly approaches, whether they farm organically, free-range and/or regeneratively.

It’s worth noting that each supplier offers a whole range of produce, not just what we’ve picked out or mentioned. So, if you like the sound of one box, we recommend exploring the brand’s website to find what else they have on offer.

The Live Frankly seal of approval:

These are really good food companies, doing good things. To be included in this list, each brand has been given the Live Frankly seal of approval. We are not a certification, but we talk with every brand and ask them to complete a comprehensive questionnaire about their ethical standards before we feature them. No brand is perfect – we’re all operating in an imperfect world – but only purpose-driven brands that are working to change things for the better are allowed on Live Frankly.

We ask that animal welfare and workers’ rights and pay are ensured across the supply chain, and want to know about their governance structures. This means you can be confident these brands are some of the most ethical and sustainable around. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Fosse Meadows | The “All Chicken” BBQ Box

Why we love Fosse Meadows:

The USP of Fosse Meadows chicken is that they are grown to 81 days. Why is this significant? Well, an average supermarket chicken is grown to around 35 days, so a Fosse chicken lives more than twice as long. This also happens to be four weeks longer than free-range chickens.

Owners of this fourth generation farm, Nick and Jacob, share a passion for genuinely brilliant food, both in flavour and quality. 

Why we love Fosse Meadows’ The “All Chicken” BBQ Box:

Chicken offers a light yet delicious evening BBQ option. Fosse Meadows’ All Chicken BBQ Box uses the whole chicken, which means no part of the chicken is going to waste. Their marinades, burgers and sausages are homemade from simple, fresh, quality ingredients.

Contents:

6 x Free Range Chilli Marinated Wings
Marinated in Chilli, Ginger & Lime 500g typically
4 x Free Range Drumsticks 500g typically

Order once, and depending on how many mouths you have to feed, you’ll have enough food for multiple BBQs.
