Properly Free Range Bronze Turkey
We rear our properly Free Range Bronze Turkeys for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year season.
All our turkeys are Bronze birds, a traditional slow-growing breed which thrives living outdoors amongst grassland pasture.
Our free-range turkey chicks hatch in late spring and spend their first three weeks under a brooder, while they grow the feathers that will protect them once they are outdoors.
Properly Free Range
Once our turkey chicks have feathered up they are moved outside where they spend the summer ranging freely on grassy hillsides, actively developing strong bones and muscles. When we say 'properly' free-range we mean it! Our bronze turkeys have plenty of space in which to thrive, they are in a healthy outdoor environment with minimum stress where they build up natural immunity and can freely exhibit all their natural instincts.
Our free-range Bronze turkeys are fed a totally natural diet, free of artificial additives and chemicals just straightforward cereals, grass, nettles fodder beet and cider apples! We allow them to grow slowly so they can reach natural maturity.
Once the turkeys have reached natural maturity they are killed by hand and the carcasses are dry plucked. We hang every bird for at least two weeks, to develop the wonderful texture and depth of flavour.
