Our Christmas turkeys arrive at the end of June as day old poults. They are then reared under heat for about 4 weeks until they are ready to be put into the outside barn at around 6-8 weeks of age. From about 9 weeks onwards, the turkeys are big enough to be released in to a grass paddock next to their shed. Here they are free to walk in and out of the barn as they please and bask all day in the sunshine (and the rain, which they seem to love1). They are shut up in the freshly strawed barn every night, to protect them from any unwanted predators! Throughout their 24 weeks on the farm, they are fed a diet which is produced from locally grown cereals and contains no antibiotics or growth promoters.
We begin processing the birds in the second week of December. all of the birds being processed by ourselves on the farm. Once plucked they are hung in a chilled environment for approximately 7-10 days in order to give them a more succulent texture and flavour. The birds are then eviscerated and packed in a special, easy to handle, turkey box complete with vaccum packed giblets, full cooking instructions and a pop Up Turkey Timer to ensure that your bird is cooked to perfection whether this is the first time you have cooked Christmas lunch or you are experienced!

What our customers say…
Dear Peter, Just thought that I would say thank you once again for the most amazing turkey. I had one of your 12kg bronze last year, but opted for a smaller 8kg bronze this year and it was perfect (although we ended up having more people than expected-that's family for you!). Four hours was perfect to cook it and it ended up moist and flavourful. Obviously I know first hand how well you treat your livestock, and I must say that it really reflects in the finished product. Do you sell them all year round? Best wishes for the new year, and I will be ordering again next year. Ed.
Hi Peter, Just a note to let you know that turkey was great again this year and enjoyed by all of my family. Hope you and your family had an enjoyable Christmas and wish you and yours the best of health and success for 2014. Regards Dave Martin
Got our Turkey from Peter at Tasty Turkeys for 8 years now and would never go anywhere else!
Pete, Just a quick note to say how well the turkeys you provided us with went down at Christmas. Almost all the staff commented how good their birds were and mine was as well, so many thanks to you and your team. Best wishes for the New Year.

Hi Peter, Just to let you know that the turkey really was especially tasty this year and we all enjoyed it - thank you! Best wishes from us all.
Hi Tasty Turkeys, We had one of your turkeys for Christmas and it was lovely. We are wondering if you sell all through the year, or if you are a seasonal venture. Look forward to hearing from you.
"Hello Peter and Carol. Just to say how much we enjoyed/are still enjoying our turkey thank you! Tasty and tender, plus the sprig of fresh herbs was a nice touch and very useful. Best wishes for 2016. Love Jo xx"

I have had Bronze turkeys for the past couple of years, they have been so moist and tasty. Will always be buying my turkeys from you!!
As always, our turkey was a peach – splendidly packaged and supplemented by giblets and a generous handful of fresh herbs. It cooked wonderfully and satisfied all at the table on Christmas day and has filled a few sandwiches since – Eric Bridgstock

I bathed her for 24 hours in water, oranges, star anise and a few other things, and then on a 6 hour roast with a sausage or two and a bit of a stock (hers!). can't knock it - thank you so much. As usual, friendly staff in your shop. thank you Henrys.

We were very pleased with our turkey. It cooked well, tasted delicious and was well presented with fresh herbs and a useful cooking monitor. The inclusion of the booklet with cooking guidelines was extremely useful too. Will definitely be ordering in 2017! – Jill Dixon
After two years of supermarket turkeys yours was far superior and dare I say it gobbled up by the family! – Elizabeth Dodwell
I wanted to let you know that our turkey crown ordered for 2016 was really delicious, very easy to cook and just as good in a curry a few days after Christmas Day. We really enjoyed it! It's also good knowing where the turkey came from and that it was reared with access to the outdoors by a local farmer. What could be better?! Thanks very much. Claire Lowry
Very good as always but exceptional this year. With thanks Mr and Mrs J Gooch
