Free Range Bronze Turkey
Have a festive feast like no other with our free range bronze turkey! These birds are slowly reared on a natural diet of high quality, homegrown oats. The birds are then dry plucked by hand and hung for 10 days, producing some seriously tender and succulent turkey with a rich, meaty flavour - a staple in your Christmas banquet!
Allow 500g per person (excluding leftovers).
Preheat the oven to 200°C and roast the turkey, breast side down, for the first hour. Drop the temperature to 180°C for the remainder of the cooking time, as indicated by the chart below. 30 minutes before the end of the cooking turn the turkey the right way up and baste well to bronze the skin.
Our Bronze Turkeys are from Goodman's Geese farm in Worcestershire, an award winning family run business. The birds are reared for 24 weeks, using an outdoor free range farming system and their diet consists of natural foods such as grass, corn and straw - all hormone and additive free!
Closer to Christmas, the Turkeys are fed a special ration to help them grow slowly and enhance the flavours of your Christmas centrepiece. All Turkeys are dry plucked by hand and hung for 10 days.
