For our Christmas turkeys and turkey joints we allow 300g of cooked meat per serving. This allows a generous 200g each for Christmas dinner plus plenty of leftovers for sandwiches, curry or whatever takes your fancy. Our year round whole chicken serving sizes allow 200g cooked meat per person which makes a generous meal but doesn't allow for leftovers in the same way.
Keep in fridge below 5˚C and use by the date on the label or freeze on the day of delivery. Do not refreeze once thawed. Minimum use by date 26th December.

Organic turkey farmer
Most of our free range organic turkeys are reared by Ed Walters, whose family has been farming turkeys for almost 40 years. They are Bronze birds, a slow-growing breed that reaches full maturity naturally, spending the first five to six weeks snug in a barn under heat lamps, before going out to grass from around eight weeks of age. They are bedded down with fresh straw every day and tucked up in the sheds at night for protection. They spend their days wandering around the organic pasture and popping in and out of their sheds as they choose.
