We offer fantastic bronze fresh free range turkeys, reared in County Down, Northern Ireland. Perfectly matured to give a delicate tenderness, these pasture fed turkeys develop a delicious flavour from being allowed to roam and graze on 160 acres of fresh grass. Grown to maturity slowly for best flavour, our free range bronze turkeys are reared especially for Christmas, and are ready for sale as a fresh bird only in December.  

Our bronze turkeys are from specialist heritage turkey Bronze stock, but it's not just their aristocratic pedigree make these birds the choicest turkeys available. The birds feed on a diet of grains, wheat, as well as a high percentage of native grasses, seeds and insects.  Each bird is plucked and processed by hand to maintain the highest quality.  This results in a superb bird with a naturally firm and moist meat, with an authentic deep slightly gamey turkey flavour.  

Our free range Turkeys are now grazing on lush grass and will be finished on farm grown wheat in November. You can place a pre-order for a fresh free range turkey now. All turkeys are oven ready, and include their giblets in a separate sealed bag.  

Please Note: These chilled Free Range Bronze Christmas Bronze Turkeys are only available to collect at the farm on 22nd December, 23rd December & 24th December 

If you need to collect a turkey earlier than these dates, or if you would like a turkey to be delivered please select a Quick frozen un-aged free range bronze turkey

 

All our minces, sausages, livers, steaks, chicken pieces, chickens, casserole cubes, stir-fry strips and bacon are now packed in plastic-free, home compostable biodegradable and ocean friendly vacuum pack bags. (Larger roasts and hams are still packed in recyclable vacuum pack bags until we use up packaging stocks).

        Delivery Charges

        Delivery charges are calculated at the checkout  and the amount charged depends on the size of your order and your postcode. There are minimum order amounts for delivery to different areas, and if your order is below the minimum amount the delivery options will not display.  You must input your postcode with a space between the first 4 digits and the last 3 digits e.g BT30 9BL (not BT309BL) so the checkout software can read your postcode and calculate the delivery charge to the delivery address. If you input a postcode without spaces e.g. BT309BL the checkout software will not read the numbers as a postcode, so no delivery options will be displayed to you at the checkout.

        Here is a general guide  - based on average portions.

        Turkey - allow approximately 1.5 lbs (675 g per person). For turkeys under 14 lb allow approximately 2 lb (900 g) per portion as the bone to meat ratio is higher for smaller birds.

        Goose - allow 2 lbs (900 g) per portion. The biggest geese are only about 11-12 lbs (approx 5.5 kg) so if you need to feed more than 6 people you will need 2 geese.

        Chicken (whole, on the bone) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

        Duck - allow 1 lb (450 g) portion.

        Pheasant - 1 pheasant feeds 2 people.

        Guinea Fowl - 1 guinea fowl feeds 4 people. 

        Ham, raw. Order 8 oz (225 g) per portion. This will give you 4 oz (110 g) of cooked ham per portion. Ham loses approximately 1/3 to 1/2 its weight in the boiling process, so if you need 2 kg of cooked meat, you should order 4 kg of raw ham.

        Meat on the bone (e.g. Rib Roast) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

        Meat, boned (e.g. Rump roast/Topside Roast/Boned Pork Loin) - allow 8 ounces (225 g) per portion.

        Meat boned for casserole (e.g. venison casserole pieces) allow 4 oz (110 g) for a casserole with equal vegetable ingredients e.g. mushrooms, onions, carrots. If the casserole meat is just poached in wine without any additional vegetables allow 8 oz (225 g) per portion.

        We cut  meat as accurately as possible, but as this is a natural product the weight of the product supplied may vary slightly from the weight ordered. It is impossible for the butcher to be absolutely precise when cutting meat.  

        The weight of free range turkeys, geese, ducks and chickens cannot be predicted until the Christmas birds are killed in early December. The final weight of these birds varies from year to year because as they are truly free range, their final weight gain depends very much on weather conditions - a cold, damp November will mean the birds do not gain weight as efficiently as in a warm, dry November and the whole batch of birds will all be a little lighter than required by orders.  We sort all birds by size and allocate them to customers strictly on size requested - no one gets preference and the weight differences are shared among all our customers.  Customers who have paid in advance online will not have to pay more if they are delivered or collect a heavier bird than than purchased. If your bird is lighter and therefore cheaper than you purchased, we will refund the difference between the price of the bird supplied and the price of the bird purchased.  

        As hams are a natural product produced from the back leg of individual pigs they vary in size depending on the size and weight of each individual pig.  So naturally when we cut a ham in half, the size of each half ham will not be identical.  Our hams are priced in weight bands with an upper and lower weight range of approximately 500 grams per band, for a fixed price per weight range. We will supply you with a ham that falls in the weight band you paid for, but we cannot supply a specific precise weight. 

        STORAGE OF YOUR MEAT

        Your order may contain both chilled and frozen items.  

        FROZEN ITEMS

        Frozen items are marked with a ‘Best Before’ date of 365 days from the date of packing. Please ensure you put frozen items in your freezer immediately your package is delivered, and store them frozen until you are ready to cook them. Do not leave chilled items in the refrigerator until the last day of their shelf life, then decide to freeze them as they will have no shelf life left.  Once thawed or defrosted previously frozen items have a ‘Use By’ date of 12 hours and must be cooked within 12 hours. Do not leave previously frozen items in a refrigerator for several days after thawing – they will not be safe to eat and should be discarded. Previously frozen items can be cooked and then refrozen for example, frozen mince can be defrosted, cooked and then frozen as e.g. Shepherds’ Pie or Bolognese Sauce.

        CHILLED ITEMS

        Chilled items are marked with a ‘Use By’ date of several days (the length of which varies depending on the type of product – minced items with no preservative have a 2 day shelf life, fresh chicken has a 3 day shelf life, sausages or burgers containing preservatives have a 5 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, beef steaks have a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, bacon has a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, but 4 days shelf life only once the pack is open.  Chjilled meat and poultry should be stored in a refrigerator set to the lowest setting (2 degrees Centigrade) and should be cooked before the ‘Use By’ date on the pack. Once cooked chilled items can be frozen and stored in a freezer.  Chilled items can also be frozen in an uncooked state if they are put in your freezer immediately you receive them.
