What makes a good Turkey? Chestnut Meats vs Supermarkets

This year we have expanded our poultry range to include large Christmas Chickens on top of the DucksTurkeys and Geese that we always offer.

At Christmas time as with the rest of the year, we at Chestnut Meats believe in only supplying the very highest quality meats from the most ethical sources.

What really makes a good Turkey?

  • A free roaming, happy, free range life. Our Free Range Turkeys live in open grass pastures in Shropshire, at night housed in spacious barns with plenty of fresh air, natural light and fresh straw bedding.
  • Proper food and no growth enhancers. Our Free Range Turkeys are fed on home-grown wheat and a corn ratio with no additives or growth promoter. Their slow growth means the the meat is as tender and tasty as possible.
  • Traditional dressing and game-style hanging. Our Free Range birds are well treated in as humane a fashion as possible, individually dry plucked and then hung for 7 to 10 days. This is the crucial stage of the process for the best tasting turkey - not all shops and supermarkets can offer this, but we can!
  • Presentation and Delivery. On delivery (or collection), each Turkey will be oven ready with vacuum packed giblets, presented in a convenient carry home box along with cooking instructions. If you opt for delivery your Turkey will be safely packaged with ice inside an insulated box, with delivery taking less than 24 hours.
