Our turkeys are raised in their natural habitat, woodland. This allows them to revert back to the natural instincts of scratching around the woodland floor looking for food. This varied diet gives the bird an enhanced taste compared to free range birds raised on a consistent diet of grower’s pellets. A varied diet means less farm inputs.

They are under stocked which helps to keep the birds happy and healthy.
