About Copas Traditional Turkeys – The Farm
We began farming the land in 1901, but it wasn’t until 1957 that we took a giant leap into rearing turkeys. It all started with a rather pointed gift, Tom Copas Senior was a teenager in 1957. Young, sprightly and far too impatient for school his father thought it was time for a hobby. The result, a gift of 153 turkeys blossomed into a small business. In time this became the much-respected heritage brand that today is Copas Traditional Turkeys.
Copas Traditional Turkey’s is a family business. Today Tom and Brenda’s children are at the helm. We continue to be led by the same values and artisan methods that Tom embraced when he met his first flock of feathered friends. We believe that the very best turkey will have been given a long, comfortable life. Copas turkeys are free to roam and forage across our meadows.
Copas Turkeys are loved by some of Britain’s best butchers, farm shops, delis and food halls. Also, we have a loyal following of home delivery and farm gate customers. Christmas is truly a day of celebration, relaxation and gaiety which is why, over the last sixty years, we have dedicated each year to producing the finest award-winning turkeys in the land, just for Christmas.
About Our Birds
- We only opt for traditional turkey breeds from specialist British hatcheries, as these grow at a natural pace & allow us to maintain a natural, compatible diversity within our flocks.
- Our turkeys enjoy an oat-rich, nutritionally-balanced, natural cereal diet that’s ethically sourced & completely free of growth promoters or other nasties.
- During the day, our Free Range Bronze & Free Range Organic turkeys are truly free-range, which means they stroll around our cherry orchards & grass meadows taking in the fresh air as soon as they’re old enough (usually six weeks old) & not just for a few weeks towards the end of their lives. Due to their long (& happy!) lives, Copas Turkeys are wandering around outside well before most cheaper alternatives have even hatched!
