Christmas Lunch Favourites

Christmas pudding, sprouts and plum pudding…. essential ingredients of the Christmas meal but in essence merely part of a supporting cast to a magnificent bird.

The following are pure breeds with the fullest flavour:

Kelly Black Turkey: A pure bred. The traditional breeding, slow rearing and natural diet, free from additives allows this turkey to grow and develop naturally, to full maturity. It is this that provides a distinctive flavour, having a more gamey taste than the traditional White Turkey. The appearance of the Black illustrates its pure breed carrying a slightly higher breast bone with not so full breasts as the White (more of a game bird appearance). The meat is fine-grained, white, succulent and full of delicious gamey flavour. This is a good all-round bird and will not disappoint eager diners. £11.50 Kg *

The cross breeds are bred for a subtler flavour:

Norfolk Bronze Turkey: The Bronze Turkey has the characterisation of a White with the fuller breasts giving plenty of white meat but with a fuller flavour than the White. £11.30 / Kg *

Norfolk White Turkey: The most common Turkey with full breasts, plenty of white meat and a more discreet flavour. £10.40 / Kg *

Boneless Turkey Breast: Breasts from the Norfolk White. Easier to carve with no waste makes this a more practical solution for the smaller party. £15.00/Kg *

All of our Turkeys are locally reared and processed on our producers premises (therefore no travelling, which means no stress to the birds). They are Free Range, fed a natural diet and given access to grass and woodland day and night. In short they are happy birds produced naturally and traditionally which all translates into better tasting meat. Reared to maturity, this ensures a layering of fat which means the meat is moist and juicy upon cooking. Plucked by hand and then hung for a minimum of 7 days, this hanging enhances the flavour and further tenderises the meat.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Turkeys being free range weights less than 5Kg are not achievable.

Large Chickens: The chickens are bred and reared in Hindolveston and are all Free Range giving a full flavoured and tender bird. £50.80 / Kg Less than 2.5Kg. £6.70 / Kg over 2.5Kg.

Goose: Another traditional choice for Christmas. Our birds are Free Range and taste as good old fashioned Goose should. £13.20 / Kg *

Aylsbury Duck: Also a popular alternative bird for Christmas. £7.50 / Kg *

Gammon Joint: We offer unsmoked and smoked joints. Both are dry cured on the premises using a traditional dry curing method. £8.40 / Kg
