How will my turkey be delivered?
We use a national next day delivery service (UK Mail), all our birds are packed in insulated boxes with ice packs using biodegradable wool insulation and will keep chilled in these boxes.
What happens if I’m out when you deliver?
We always suggest leaving delivery instructions when ordering online, such as “leave in porch”, “leave in garage” etc. If popping out leave a note on the door such as “please leave in garage” sign the note as this will act as a signed delivery for the driver.
How do I store my turkey?
When you take delivery of your turkey unpack it, remove the giblets and turkey from the box and store in a fridge, alternatively you can store it in the insulated box it comes in (best to keep the giblets in the fridge), top tip, the packaging comes with two ice packs, work on a rotation system, one in the freezer and one in the box and rotate round to keep your box chilled.
Are your turkeys the same as Kelly turkeys and Copas turkeys?
Better, (well we would wouldn’t we), we use the same day-old chicks as Kelly’s and Copas, feed from a local mill and grown on the farm, access to orchards and meadows and years of experience, plus you’ll only ever find us producing up to 1500 birds a year.
What is best, a Norfolk Bronze turkey or a Norfolk Black turkey?
It’s preference really, the bronze bird is probably how most people expect a turkey to look, full-breasted.
A Norfolk Black, on the other hand, is a longer, narrower bird (it has a more pronounced breastbone) and slightly gamier flavour.
How long do you rear your birds for?
All our free-range turkeys are reared up to 24/25 weeks of age (6 months). You may find cheaper birds in the supermarkets but there’s a reason, they may have only be reared for 16 weeks.
