Our turkey poults are from the Kelly Bronze hatchery in Essex which we have received poults from for the last 25 years.
They arrive on-farm in the first week of August at one day old. They are reared in pole barns with natural light and ventilation, and bedded daily with fresh straw. We have Traditional White Turkey’s in a pole barn and Free Range Bronze Turkey’s which feed and roam on the Wigginton Fields grass meadows. They are a naturally slow growing which are makes the meat more succulent.
The turkeys never leave the farm from day one. All our processing is done in house to reduce food miles so there is no compromise on welfare.
Your turkey will be carefully weighed and packaged with cooking instructions, ready to go into your oven.
Free range turkeys are able to roam around the meadows of Wigginton Fields Farm in the daytime, allowing them to freely scratch and forage. They have access to a secure warm straw pen at night. They have outside access whatever the weather with feed and water always available.
Traditional white turkeys are reared in a barn with natural sunlight and ventilation keeping the pen fresh and the turkeys happy. Low stocking densities, perches and toys keep the turkeys active and amused. They are bedded on our own wheat straw ensuring warmth and comfort.
