Remove the bacon for at least 30 minutes of the cooking time to allow the skin to brown.

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.
