Stansfield Woodland Turkeys
About Our Turkeys
Stansfield woodland turkeys are produced on the Dennis family farm in Suffolk where we have been farming since 1927.
The poults arrive on our farm as day-old chicks. For the first five or six weeks, they are kept in a barn under lamps to keep them warm. At around six weeks we let them out into our woodland. From that point on our turkeys spend their days roaming pasture and woodland as they would in their natural habitat. We raise the flock in the old fashioned way and that means they are slow grown to full maturity. The old fashioned way of rearing ensures that our turkeys develop a that fuller flavour that cannot be achieved with mass-reared, quick-growing varieties.
All our turkeys are dry plucked and game hung as would traditionally happen, to let the flavour mature.
Turkeys reared by the TFTA farmers are the only turkeys to have been awarded the “Traditional Speciality Guarantee ” mark from the EU, which is a sign of our old-fashioned flavour and quality. Annual inspections ensure the TFTA farmers adhere to the strict standards that guarantee authenticity, provenance and quality.
Choosing a Stansfield Woodland turkey, therefore, ensures that the centrepiece of your Christmas meal will be of succulent, deep flavoured meat the only comes from truly free-range birds reared to exacting standards.
