Moat Farm, run by Antony Pearce, is a mixed farm in Stoke Mandeville, on the edge of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. As well as the turkeys, the farm comprises 360 hectares (900 acres) of arable land, which is mainly used to grow wheat for Weetabix® breakfast cereal, Milling Wheat for Warburtons bread, Barley for Budweiser lager and gluton-free oats for Glebe Farm amongst other crops.
Antony’s late grandmother Eva, who reared chickens, identified an increasing demand for turkeys at Christmas, and the benefits of running a turkey enterprise on a mainly arable farm where much of the work is concentrated into the summer months. That was over 40 years ago, and the Pearce Family has been rearing turkeys ever since. Antony’s mother Janet jokes that he (born on 14th December) was “born in the turkey shed”!
