They don’t come more free range than this…
Our turkeys live their lives free range in woodland, their natural habitat, which makes them happier and tastier.
Make sure you give your family something special this Christmas, don’t settle for a tasteless supermarket bird.
Producing our Organic Turkey:
Our Outdoor Reared Organic Turkeys are completely free range, we only produce one small high welfare group of turkeys a year for Christmas. They are reared from poults with ample indoor and outdoor space to play and forage.
Once they are old enough to venture out from their large shed they roam free on organic pasture and in their own organic woodland full of native trees.
They are fed on a specially milled organic feed which is GM and additive free and also forage for their own food in the wood and are fed fruit from our organic orchard.
The turkeys are a mix of heritage breeds, each are slow growing at a different rate which allows us to produce a range of weights for the dinner table.
Swillington Organic Turkeys are dry plucked by hand. This allows us to hang and age the birds for three weeks which massively improves the flavour and taste.
What The Papers Say
"The turkey was especially good. My guests ranged from 75 years to our three-year-old grandson and they all loved it. Very easy to cook.
The turkey came from a rare breed, Norfolk Blacks, and was free range, home-reared and butchered on the farm.
I put the bird in the oven at the appointed time and hoped that it would cook properly. It didn’t let me down and cooked beautifully, as per instructions.
The turkey took almost no carving and sliced very well. I cooked the vegetables very simply and served the leeks in white sauce. My only addition was cranberry sauce. The turkey was full of flavour, moist and tender and would have easily served eight people."

Did you know?
It takes us two weeks to slaughter, pluck and hand prepare our turkeys for Christmas, the same amount of birds would be processed in just two minutes in a supermarket factory.
Our small scale reduces stress and means we can traditionally dry pluck by hand and hang each bird for three weeks for an unbeatable flavour.
