Christmas Turkeys & Geese
About our birds
The turkeys are nearly all hen birds from several slow growing strains bred specifically for Christmas to give a wide weight range and mature birds at about 22-24 weeks (compared with intensive supermarket birds of 14-16 weeks). This ensures the best conformation, succulent flavour and fine meat texture. All the birds are fed with food containing 70% cereal products and no animal protein or growth promoters.
The turkeys are processed on our farm, thus reducing stress as well as food miles. This starts in early December when all birds are dry-plucked, hand finished and then hung in a chilled environment for a minimum of 10 days which helps to tenderise the meat and develop its unique flavour. Most of our turkeys are sold direct to the consumer to enjoy throughout the festive season. We also supply several local farm shops and wholesale enquiries are always welcome.
We also sell free range geese, which again are hand reared from goslings.
Large free range chicken are available.
