Thank you for supplying the best turkeys in the country!
I thought I’d drop you a quick line to say thank you for another delicious turkey this year. I cooked it with a little advice from Delia and Jamie and I have to say it was the nicest turkey we’ve ever had.
After moving house just before Xmas it was delightful it was to settle down on Xmas day and enjoy a lovely Xmas dinner – thank you so much once again.
It was great to be able to source our Xmas turkey from you once again and to see the family all helping out. Please keep up the service as it really helps makes Christmas and the bird was fantastic as ever!

Hi. Just to say how lovely and tasty your Turkey was, I dont usually enjoy Turkey but this year I loved it! We had Turkey Christmas day, Turkey supreme the following day and Turkey curry the day after, plus we had sandwiches.
The veg box was fabulous as well, the potatoes made the best roast potatoes I have ever had. The onions were really flavoursome?
We were so impressed with the quality of your produce ie veg and turkey, Thankyou
I would just like to say thanks for the lovely Turkey we bought from you this Christmas. All the family commented on how nice it was.
We bought from you for the 1st time this year and will certainly be buying again. I’ve recommended you to all my family and friends.
Hi Diane. Beautiful bird, thanks very much. My husband is training to be a chef so he very much enjoyed cooking the turkey and the veggies we got from you. Thanks again wonderful Christmas dinner and soup and curry and sandwiches lol
