Our Turkeys are grown to full maturity and to the highest welfare standards.
We use cereal-based feeds with no growth-promoting additives.
We use traditional production methods, the birds are plucked, finished by hand and hung whole-bodied in a cold store for at least a week, this traditional practice allows the meat to tenderize and develops the flavour.
What makes our turkeys different
We produce our turkeys in accordance with the Golden Turkey® quality assurance code. The code covers all aspects of production to ensure we reach and maintain the highest welfare standards. Our facilities and production methods are independently inspected.
We start with special slow-growing breeds of turkey and rear them to full maturity at least 26 weeks of age. Our flock is free to roam on grassland in the daytime from 8 weeks old.
We process all our birds on the farm using traditional methods, the birds are plucked, finished by hand and hung in a cold store for at least a week, to allow the meat to tenderise and develop its unique flavour.
We then dress and present them to our customers in a box complete with fresh herbs and cooking instructions.
