Freshly picked festive veg and a traditional Bronze turkey – the main ingredients for your Christmas dinner, sorted.
- 1x Turkey small (feeds 8-10)
- 1x Seasonal organic veg box - medium
Freshly picked festive veg and a traditional Christmas turkey, delivered straight from the farm. Your centrepiece: a slow-reared Bronze bird, rich and utterly tender. We include the giblets so you can make the absolute best proper gravy. Alongside, 8 varieties of seasonal veg.
Feeds 6-8 people generously, with plenty of leftovers (300g cooked meat per portion).
The veg in your box is grown in our own fields, or by our small-scale farmer friends. Our turkeys reach maturity at their own pace while they graze on small West Country farms. We choose Bronze birds: a slow-growing traditional breed that gives rich, juicy meat with an intense natural flavour. Having spent the first five to six weeks snug in a barn under heat lamps, they go out to grass and spend their days wandering around the pasture and popping in and out of their sheds as they choose. At night, they are bedded down with fresh straw and tucked up in the sheds for protection.
How to prepare
Turkey: Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas 5. Remove the giblets. Transfer to a large roasting tin, breast-side up, and brush the breast and legs with melted butter before seasoning. Cover the whole bird with foil to protect the skin from over browning and transfer to the oven for 45 mins/kg (40 mins fan assisted oven). Every hour, baste with its juices. 30 mins before the end of the cooking time, remove the foil to allow the skin to brown up. Check if the meat is thoroughly cooked by inserting a carving fork into the thickest area of both breast and thighs. If the juices are pink, return to the oven for another 15 mins, then test again.
