To maintain the freshness and quality of your Whole Partridge, we recommend following these storage guidelines:

Refrigeration: Upon receiving your Whole Partridge, promptly store it in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32°F (0°C) and 40°F (4°C). This helps to inhibit bacterial growth and preserve the meat’s freshness.

Packaging: If the partridge is in an unopened vacuum-sealed package, you can store it directly as is. If the packaging has been opened, wrap the partridge tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container to prevent exposure to air and moisture.

Airtight Container: Utilize an airtight container to store the partridge, ensuring it is properly sealed. This helps maintain its moisture content and prevents it from absorbing any unwanted odors from other foods in the refrigerator.

Avoid Cross-Contamination: When storing other food items in the same refrigerator, it’s crucial to separate them from the Whole Partridge to prevent any cross-contamination. Keep the partridge on a separate shelf or in a designated area.

Use-By Date: Check the “Use-By” or “Best Before” date on the packaging, and make sure to consume the Whole Partridge before this date for optimal freshness and flavor. If the partridge has exceeded the recommended date, it is advisable to discard it.

By adhering to these storage recommendations, you can maximize the shelf life of your Whole Partridge and ensure that it remains fresh and delicious until you’re ready to cook and savor it.

This pack contains 1 piece.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Remove the Whole Partridge from its packaging and pat it dry with paper towels. This helps to ensure a crispy skin.

Seasoning: Rub the partridge with your choice of seasonings, such as salt, pepper, herbs, or spices, to enhance its flavor. You can also stuff the cavity with aromatics like herbs, garlic, or lemon slices for added fragrance.

Roasting: Place the seasoned partridge on a roasting rack or in a roasting pan. Roast in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes per pound (450g), or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Baste the partridge occasionally with pan juices to keep it moist and flavorful.

Resting: Once the partridge is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute within the meat, resulting in a more tender and juicy bird.

Carving: To carve the Whole Partridge, use a sharp knife to separate the legs and wings from the body. Cut along the breastbone to separate the two breast halves. Serve the carved partridge on a platter and enjoy!

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the Whole Partridge and your desired level of doneness. Always use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) for safe consumption.

Embrace the culinary adventure of cooking a Whole Partridge from The Black Farmer, and delight in the rich, gamey flavors it brings to your table.
