Turkeys

 

We produce both traditional white and free range bronzes, a slow-growing strain with enhanced flavour and quality.

The white turkeys are kept in open barns on deep straw with natural light and ventilation. The bronze turkeys are kept on large grass paddocks.

Points of difference between our turkeys and supermarket:

  • Dry plucked by hand Natural cereal based diet
  • Bronze are free range with plenty of space to roam
  • Hung for minimum of 10 days
  • Slow growing old fashion strains
  • Family farm.

Golden Promise turkeys are raised in the old fashioned ways by caring farmers, all members of the Traditional Farmfresh Turkey Association. 
 
These turkeys are developed from the slow-growing breeds of days gone by and they are given only natural foods – which means that, come Christmas dinner time, you’ll be enjoying the finest flavoured turkey you could imagine.
