Christmas Organic Turkey 2020
Happy Christmas Everyone! (Only joking)
However.......it is time to get those turkey orders in! We aren't rearing our own this year but have sourced some happy, free range and organic turkeys from Northumberland. (Northumberland Free Range Poultry) Here's a wee bit of info on how they are raised:
"Arriving on the 24th of June nearly six months before Christmas , they are grown slowly in a natural habitat. They have free range access to grass and woodland for foraging, which gives them a stress free life making for a happy , plump and tasty bird."
Now then, down to the serious business of size. A good rule of thumb is to order approximately 500g per person. So a 2kg turkey will feed 4 and a 8kg turkey will feed 16. (on a side note, here's hoping we can all see our friends and family this Christmas!)
Prices vary depending on the size of bird but they will be approximately £18.00/kg, so that's £72 for a 4kg turkey, enough to feed 8 people. Of course, this is more expensive than a non-organic turkey, but these guys have been happy and well looked after and not only is this so very important, but it comes through in the flavour and quality of the meat.
We will be doing a turkey deposit of £25 per bird.
