Talking turkey to The Telegraph

If there’s one thing we recommend you do today, it’s to buy The Telegraph and read the brilliantly written article by Leah Hyslop about the work that we do with our free-range poultry farmer Stuart, at Castlemead in Somerset.


It’s not surprising we’re talking all things turkey, but the provenance of our Christmas birds, alongside the exceptional animal welfare and high quality meat that we deliver through working with Stuart, is something we’re incredibly proud of, so it’s really exciting for us to be championed by such an established newspaper.

So go on, grab a cuppa, read our article and order your Christmas turkey with us this year – but you better be quick, order deadline is Tuesday 16th December!

Money back on your Christmas turkey!

We’re delighted that this year all our turkeys are once again bred and raised outdoors by our poultry farmer Stuart on the picturesque Castlemead Farm in Radstock, Somerset.

So how does it all work? Once the birds have led a happy and healthy life, they are processed and hand finished on the farm where they are dry plucked (rather than wet plucked), allowing them to stay fresh for as long as possible.

Turkey has a bit of a stigma attached to it as being a dry meat but this simply isn’t the case with Stuart’s birds.

All of his turkeys have been allowed to fully mature at their natural rate so they come in all different shapes and sizes; an immature turkey (that you will find in the supermarket) not only lacks texture, flavour and conformation, but it also misses the hard fat needed to self baste when cooking.

Not only this, but the birds are then hung between 10-14 days which helps to further mature the meat as the fibres begin to break down making it much more tender and juicy.

Everything is done on Stu’s farm, from day one to the day that we deliver it to your door. It means complete traceability and we believe the only way to ensure the highest quality.

The end product is unbeatable and something that simply can not be matched in your local supermarket so make sure you make it a field&flower Christmas this year!
