Free Range, Home-Grown Bronze Turkeys
Available for Christmas collection or delivery only.
Slow grown to maturity in time for Thanksgiving, and allowed to roam freely in the meadows of Thorncote Green ensures our Turkeys are moist and succulent, and of the highest quality. Our produce meets and vastly exceeds animal welfare standards, and choosing Franklins of Thorncote guarantees that it has been fed a natural traditional diet, bred for its natural flavour and is completely Free Range.
The meat of our Bronze Turkey is slightly darker in colour and has a more intense flavour. When cooked, the meat also has a pinker colour.
As soon as they are old enough to be outside, our turkeys are allowed to roam free in the large outdoor paddock they call home. Reared on an all-natural diet, free from any antibiotics or additives, the birds boast a naturally tasty turkey flavour. They are slaughtered and processed on the farm, so there are no food-miles and no stress to the bird. They are hung for 2-3 weeks before eviscerating which helps gives them their delicious flavour, then they are dry plucked by hand.
Cooking a turkey for Christmas can be a nerve-wracking experience...but don't worry - just a bit of preparation and a sprinkling of knowledge can help ensure you get the best possible flavour from your bird.
