Turkey – Free-range Bronze
To order your turkey please contact us on 01732 840000 for availability to ensure we have the weight that you require.
Our turkeys come from Appledore, on Romney Marsh here in Kent, where they are fed on a simple diet of wheat and vegetable proteins – free of additives, drugs or growth promoters. After roaming the grassy paddocks during the day they are bedded down overnight on the farm’s home-grown wheat straw.
The turkeys enjoy a long and active life, and this freedom to roam means they develop a distinctive taste and texture.
Appledore Turkeys have won Great Taste Awards every year since 2013, including a two star award for their Free Range Bronze Turkeys in 2018.
Turkeys are boxed, including a sprig of rosemary, pop-up cooking timer, recipe leaﬂet and vacuum-packed giblets.

Turkey Crowns and Butterflies
Our butchers can prepare your turkey as a Crown, with the legs removed and supplied separately, or as a boneless Butterfly, with the legs and all the bones removed. A Butterfly will be tied and dressed with bacon and can also be stuffed with a sausagemeat/sage and onion mix if required.
We prepare Crowns and Butterflies in our butchery since pre-prepared ones have limited availability and are more expensive. Please remember, however, that the the legs are up to a third of the total weight, so choose a turkey up to 50% larger than the Crown or Butterfly you want. In all cases the price you pay will be based on the original turkey. Larger turkeys offer better value, and you can even take home the legs separately, if you wish.
