Rearing Your Own Turkeys
There is nothing like rearing your own Christmas dinner! Whether this is just a small number for yourself and for family or a larger number to sell to others ……….turkeys can be a bit addictive!
We can supply day old turkeys or turkey poults off heat. You can be sure of a wonderful Christmas dinner for yourself and great satisfaction from your customers too!
Our turkeys are Norfolk Blacks and they are..
- From parent birds kept on a free-range, organic system, so they should have a healthier start in life.
- Bred naturally on our farm from small groups of stags and hens without the need for artificial insemination.
- Hatched from eggs laid in March onwards at the natural time in the spring.(No restricted lighting is used).
- A traditional slow growing breed that gives an excellent flavour and texture – the response from customers speaks for itself!
Oven ready weights: You can expect weights between 4 and 6kgs from hens and between 7 and 10kgs from stags. The early May hatched birds will tend to have heavier weights than the June hatch but all will be ready in time for Christmas. They have a much longer life than most other turkeys and this is indeed a good selling point!
Hatching and prices for 2015:
As usual, our plan is to hatch weekly between 5th May and 16th June 2015.
