Christmas Free Range Turkey
£70.20 – £168.85
The tradition of eating turkey for a British Christmas dinner was reputedly started by Henry VIII, but it was only in the mid-twentieth century that the turkey overtook the goose as the most popular meat for the Christmas table.Our turkeys are free-range and reared in accordance with the strict welfare standards of the Traditional Farm Fresh Turkey Association. The turkeys arrive on our farm at just three weeks old and stay for the rest of their lives. They happily roam in the meadow during the day and are housed in a spacious barn at night. They are fed only high quality cereal with no antibiotics, growth additives or any other drugs. The birds are reared slowly – as well as giving them a longer life this means the meat is tastier. They are dry-plucked and allowed to hang and mature for at least 7 days to enhance keeping quality and make them succulent.
Free Range Turkeys (pre-order for Thanksgiving & Christmas 2023)
At Christmas time you are spoiled for the choice of turkeys that are available. But if you are looking for a bird that is tasty, succulent, locally produced and reared to the highest welfare standards you should look no further than the Pearce Family turkeys.
Pearce Family Turkeys also offers the option of a turkey crown with butchered legs and thighs. The legs and thighs will be separately packaged for even more delicious cooking and eating! A crown is perfect if you have fewer people to feed or guests who all like white meat.
The other advantages to a crown are that it will cook quickly and should fit in any oven – and your roasting tin.
In addition, we are also offering the usual turkey crown along with the butchered thighs prepared in a light marinade sauce. The recipe and cooking is being done by a local celebrity chef. The thighs will be vacuum packed for ease of storage.

AVIAN INFLUENZA / BIRD FLU
We are taking every precaution to mitigate our chances of contracting this terrible disease but by the nature of it being highly contagious and carried by wild birds, we can make no guarantees.
Our turkeys are continually checked and we have never previously been infected by the disease however, the spread of the flu is 6 weeks earlier than in 2021, which was the worst the country had ever seen.
In the unlikely event that our turkeys do contract bird flu, we will contact every customer immediately and of course refund any deposits that have been paid, as we will be unable to honour orders taken.
This is the very worst case scenario and would be devasting to our business and of course to our valued customers which is why we will continue to take every precaution possible to avoid an outbreak.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
