Farm fresh turkeys available to pre-order

We have been producing traditional farm fresh turkeys for Christmas at Bates Farm for over 70 years. We pride ourselves in producing the highest quality Christmas turkeys.

Our turkeys arrive as day old chicks & are reared to maturity in well ventilated, naturally lit, spacious barns on deep bedding of either straw or shavings. They are fed a high quality, cereal based, drug free diet that contains no growth promoting additives, to provide a range of weights ready for Christmas.

We are independently inspected annually to ensure that we maintain the highest welfare standards. Slaughter takes place on the farm with the minimum of stress. Plucking is hand finished. All our turkeys are game hung for 8-10 days in a chilled environment to give them a fuller richer flavour.

We sell traditional white feathered turkeys and also offer a limited number of bronze feathered turkeys which have been bred for their superior flavour & improved meat texture.

Turkeys are supplied Oven Ready with giblets.

For companies wishing to order turkeys as staff gifts or butchers interested in purchasing dressed or long legged turkeys, please get in touch to discuss discounts for bulk orders.

Turkey sales have been much faster than normal this year. The number of turkeys are now limited, weeks before the turkeys are due to be plucked (which is when we can tell whether the turkeys are the weight that we are expecting) We would like to let you know that we will do our best to supply a turkey within the weight range ordered, but we can’t guarantee that it will be in the weight range requested. We do not anticipate that turkeys will be more than 1 weight range above that requested. Your understanding in this unprecedented situation is much appreciated.

 

Turkeys will be available for collection on
Thursday 23rd December and Friday 24th December

We have a small number of Turkeys left for 2021, please ring the farm on  01925 765267 for availability (Updated 23rd December 2021)
