What is The Golden Turkey Quality Assurance Guarantee?
The Traditional Farm-fresh Turkey Association (TFTA) is a group of independent family-run farms across the UK producing free range turkeys specifically for Christmas – to their Golden Turkey Quality Assurance Growing Standard. Our ‘Golden Turkey’ Quality Assurance Guarantee sets the standard for the very finest quality free range Christmas turkeys.
Turkey, the year-round source of low fat, high protein meat
In the past, the turkey was always seen as a once-a-year treat at Christmas, with nearly 100 per cent of all turkeys being sold during December.
