Our slow growing Traditional White Turkeys arrive at the farm as day old chicks. They are reared in naturally ventilated barns with plenty of space to roam and express natural behaviour. All our turkeys are fed on our homegrown cereals which are milled on the farm. The welfare of our turkeys is very important to us, they are given fresh homegrown straw each day and forage on surplus apples and pumpkins to keep them entertained. No antibiotics are fed to our turkeys but homeopathic solutions, made naturally using herbs, are added to their drinking water to keep them fit and healthy.
To provide an optimum flavoured bird that remains moist when cooked, all our turkeys are hand dry-plucked and hung for a minimum of 10 days before being prepared for the oven by us on the farm.
