Christmas is coming and we’re ready for it!

For us at Packington Free Range, our Christmas planning starts in the warmth of the summer months. While most people are still talking BBQ sausages, our thoughts turn to Cockerels and this year, Turkeys too!

Why have we added Turkeys to our Christmas offering?

We are passionate about Free Range Pork and Poultry, and Alec has always produced Free Range Chickens and Cockerels. But he was increasingly asked, “Why don’t you do Free Range Turkeys?” This demand from friends and customers has grown recently, so in 2018, he took the decision to get involved.

What makes our Bronze Turkeys special?

As with all our Poultry, it’s imperative that our turkeys meet the same high standards you’ve come to expect from us.

We receive our Poults from award-winning breeder, Paul Kelly of Kelly Bronze. Taking them as one day old Poults, ensures we are responsible for the welfare of the birds for their entire lives, and can guarantee our high standards throughout.

We rear traditional Bronze Turkeys, which have an exceptional reputation for good flavour and succulence. They are perfect for Christmas Day.

How we rear our Free Range Bronze Turkeys:

We rear our Turkeys outside on traditional English pasture, with shelter and protection from foxes in our polytunnels. We continue to care for our birds until they reach an age we know fully maximises the flavour of the bird. Once ready, we process them in state-of-the-art facilities which are all BRC accredited. They’re then packed into individual branded boxes for your convenience, complete with tips and cooking instructions.

Don’t worry, we’re still producing Christmas Cockerels too!

As usual, this year we are also offering our Cockerels, which gain in popularity every year. Our Cockerels have a completely different flavour to our Turkeys, and they’re still a Christmas favourite with customers.

Our Turkeys and Cockerels are available in small, medium, large and extra large sizes. You can find out more about the specific sizes and prices for each bird via your local Packington Free Range Butcher or our online Christmas Shop. Find your nearest stockist here or buy direct from our Christmas Shop to have your bird delivered direct to your door.

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Packington Free Range Bronze Turkeys are available this year!
