Organic Free Range Turkeys

Our small flock of Organic turkeys was established in 1996 as a first step towards developing a more mixed and sustainable farming system. Two redundant farm buildings were converted, generously proportioned paddocks were created, and osiers and fruit trees were planted to provide the birds with shelter and insects. Given that the turkey is a woodland bird it seemed appropriate they should be based at Woodlands Farm.

The Woodlands flock consists of traditional bronze and black breeds. We also have some rare Lavendar Blues and Bourbon Reds. Most of the birds are produced from our own breeding stock and where practical when a hen goes broody she is allowed to sit, usually on about fifteen eggs.

Once the chicks are hatched they are brought up in a small groups. This helps reduce the risk of disease. The birds have access to the paddocks at all times, except at night when they prefer to perch indoors.

It has been of special concern that the slaughtering should be carried out humanely. Sooner than transport our birds to an abattoir, which can be stressful, this is carried out when the birds are out of sight of each other on their home territory. Our concern is to provide the birds with dignity in death as well as in life.

Fresh Oven Ready Woodlands Farm Organic Bronze Turkeys can be collected from the farm or home delivered for a standard charge.

All orders are presented in labeled plastic freezer bags, with giblets. Cooking instructions and recipe ideas are included.

Woodlands Farm Organic turkeys continue to provoke considerable media interest, partly because of the unique way in which they are reared. They are credited as being the first organic turkey flock in Lincolnshire. Recently the turkeys have attained nationwide Star status! They feature in the BBC book Pat Gallagher's Organic Calendar ( Pat plays the part of Pat Archer in the popular radio series The Archers), Rick Stein's Food Heroes and numerous other publications.
