Product Description

UNDRESSED TURKEYS! We have sold all of our dressed turkeys today, but we have some that need gutting and their feet removing. These have all been plucked. These are just £7.50 each. 

Our turkeys, raised in the foothills of the Pennines in Lancashire MUST GO TODAY!

We use bronze and black heritage breeds, raised slowly to give you the best and most succulent flavour. The meat has been hung for 14 days, and our breeds will give a good quantity of both breast and dark meat. You get the giblets too, for that great Christmas gravy. 

COLLECTION ONLY: Collection can be made TODAY (Tuesday 18th April) between 3pm and 6pm from Rye Flatt Barn, School Lane, Laneshaw Bridge, BB8 7JB. 

WHAT IS ETHICAL: We take great pride in raising the birds in an ethical manner. We know that "ethical" can mean different things to different people, so we thought it would be useful to highlight below what we mean by ethical:

-Making sure that the animals have the ability to free range, and explore the outdoors. They're roamed outdoors none stop, until the recent poultry lockdown rules came in, and then we've built them a large covered outdoor pen.

-Ensuring that they’re happy, free from fear and well fed. We mean, we even play Classical music to ours (though for some folk that could be their idea of hell!)

-In carbon footprint terms, it means being able to supply food locally, that hasn’t been shipped half way across the world. The lower the food miles, the better for the environment

-From a personal point of view, it means selecting breeds that are more traditional, so they grow more slowly. They spend longer on planet earth and they haven’t been bred to produce meat at a ridiculous speed. They’ll have about double the lifespan of some commercial breeds.

-Taste. We think some folk forget this. We think that if you’re to be an ethical farmer, you should REALLY care that what you’re producing tastes great, for the end consumer.

-Supporting other local businesses. That fits in with the eco stuff, as well as just doing the right thing. We get our Poults (young turkeys) from Lancashire, our feed, straw, the works is all bought locally

-That when the time comes, the animal is stunned first, using the “stun-to-kill” technique

-We actually care. These animals are funny, but important to me.
