Weeks free range bronze turkeys

Our Free Range Bronze Turkeys

The turkeys arrive at our farm in Downham as day old chicks, in the middle of June, from a local hatchery. They are then reared by us to the highest welfare standards and are slowly brought to maturity.

Our turkeys are fed on a top quality cereal based diet with no growth promoters of any kind. The main ingredients of this ration are wheat and oats produced locally and milled at an Essex feed mill.

In early August the turkeys are given access to our fields, where they can scratch the earth and eat the natural vegetation. At night they sleep inside to protect them from the many local foxes.

You can see turkeys running around the paddock at the front of the farm for yourself – At the top of Brock Hill from Sudbury Road or from the Laylands Farm driveway.

In December our Free Range Bronze Turkeys are hand plucked. Then hung in a chilled store for 7 - 10 days before being prepared for the table. This produces the tender flavoursome meat that is the hallmark of turkeys coming from Laylands Farm.

Your oven ready turkey will be presented to you wrapped in grease proof paper in our own carry home box displaying our logo, with a sprig of rosemary, pop up timer and a leaflet giving full cooking and storage instructions.

We are members of The Anglian Turkey Association, and we have won many cups and rosettes over the years, a testament to the quality of our birds.

The turkeys are ready for collection from the farm on Wednesday 23rd December 2020. Please note that unfortunately we are unable to accept card payments.
