About

Our traditional Bronze turkeys are slow grown, organic and free range, for juicy meat that’s full of flavour. This crown has the entire breast, with just the wings for a small amount of dark meat. Quick to cook, easy to carve – it’s a fantastic alternative to a whole bird.

Our free range organic turkeys reach maturity at their own pace while they graze organic pasture 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.

Feeds 9-10 generously with plenty of leftovers (300g of cooked meat per serving), minimum weight 3kg.

How to prepare

Remove from the fridge at least half an hour before cooking. Rub with a little plain oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Roast at 200°C/Gas 6 for 20 mins, then 20 mins per kg at 180°C/Gas 4. Make sure the juices run clear. Test with a skewer – if the juices run pink, return to the oven for a further 10 mins then test again. Repeat as necessary. Rest for 30 mins before serving.

Storage

Keep in the fridge, below 5°C, and use by the date on the label, or freeze on day of delivery. Defrost thoroughly before cooking. Do not refreeze once thawed. Minimum use by date 26th December.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep.
