Frenchbeer Farm says
Our Turkeys are all slow growing strains and from beginning to end we have complete control over the whole process. The day old poults have been hatched early in the summer, then brooded in our granite barns for about six weeks and from start to finish are fed a simple traditional cereal based diet. When the turkeys are big enough they are given access to the surrounding fields and meadows. Here the birds have the opportunity to range and forage on grasses, herbs and seasonal berries. After 24 weeks of age the birds have reached full maturity and have a traditional finish of fat. This ensures the meat to be tender and succulent when cooked.
All our Turkeys are dry plucked by hand allowing us to game hang our birds for 10 days. This further enhances the flavour as well as improving the texture. After the birds have been hung we prepare your bird for the oven and present it in one of our own unique turkey boxes. It is this process that ensures that our birds guarantee you that traditional excellence at Christmas.
Always unwrap the bird and place it in the fridge until you are ready to cook. All turkeys delivered between 16th t and 24th December will have a best before of 26th December, provided they are kept at the correct temperature

Meet Frenchbeer Farm
In 1986 my parents came to the traditional Dartmoor hill farm known as Frenchbeer. While building up the sheep flock and beef herd, a few Christmas turkeys were produced to aid cash flow. These proved very popular with their customers so they decided to produce more and this has become an important part of the family business. We now take great pride in creating a quality product which we know will become the highlight of one of your most important meals of the year. Our bronze turkeys are all slow growing strains which enjoy a free range lifestyle and by Christmas are fully mature and have a traditional ‘finish’ of fat. It is this along with the hanging of the birds which make our turkeys tender, succulent and deliciousFind out more
