Gillbachtal Rooster

Cock Corn-fed, kitchenready

The Gillbachtal rooster is the roast chicken we have always dreamed of. Regionally sourced, large-boned, GMO-free feed, reared in humane conditions with a lot of exercise. The result: firm, flavoursome meat. The roosters at the family-run business in Rommerskirchen, North Rhine-Palatinate, receive complementary feed consisting of more than 50 % home-grown corn. This gives the meat its characteristically yellowish tint and intensifies its flavour.

Details

The Gillbach rooster is named after a region in the Cologne-Düsseldorf-Mönchengladbach area in the west of Germany. The Gillbach Valley is the home of Peter Esser, whose family-run business is already in its fourth generation. The Stiftshof farm has been specialising in high-quality poultry for around 25 years. Nicknamed “Gänsepeter” (Goose Peter), Esser is famous for his geese well beyond the borders of Rommerskirchen.

His roosters live in open stables with access to expansive green pastures, where they can roam freely between April and October. In the evening, they are returned to the stables for protection against foxes and other predators.

The Gillbach roosters are fed a special mixture consisting of approx. 55 % corn. In addition, they receive wheat and a protein supplement (protein, vitamins and minerals) that is produced specifically for Esser’s farm. All components are free from genetically modified components. The corn and wheat are grown by Esser himself.

Gillbachtal corn chicken makes for a perfect roast chicken for 4–5 people.
