Thanksgiving Free Range Turkey


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.



For our American cousins the Thanksgiving holiday represents the blessing of the harvest and giving thanks for the preceding year.

It originated as a harvest festival, and the centre piece of Thanksgiving celebrations remains Thanksgiving dinner. The dinner traditionally consists of foods and dishes indigenous to the Americas, namely turkey, potatoes (usually mashed), stuffing, squash, corn (maize), green beans, cranberries and pumpkin pie. We are happy to support your Thanksgiving dinner with a centre piece turkey.
