Early Bird Discount
by 14th November 2020
Christmas is Not Cancelled!
There is no doubt that 2020 is proving to be a challenging year for everyone! However, our poultry range remains the same as ever with fresh free range bronze and white turkeys, which are available as whole birds, crowns, boned and rolled joints or butterflies. We also have our free range geese and ducks as normal.
Because of COVID-19, we are going to be making some changes to our system this Christmas. The main one, to reduce the need for contact in the shop, means we will be offering a drive through collection. Customers will not be required to leave their car. On driving in, we will ask for your name and order number and you will be directed through a one-way system around the farmyard to the collection point where we will put the turkey/goose in your car boot.
The other change is, unfortunately, this year we will not be offering our fresh gammon or accompaniments such as sausages or bacon. We MAY have frozen accompaniments available for purchase on the collection days but will be reviewing this nearer the time and will update the website accordingly.
Lastly, if you want to avoid the Christmas rush and collect your fresh turkey in November to freeze down we will offer you a £10 discount. If you wish to take advantage of this, please contact Alex directly on 01730 268131.
At Ashford Farm, all of our poultry is free range. Our turkeys (both bronze and white) come in from a British hatchery as day old chicks in June and are slow growing traditional breeds, often being around double the age of those reared intensively. The fact that they are allowed to mature slowly and have daily access to our fields below the beautiful Ashford Hangers, mean they grow into plump, rounded turkeys with a natural layer of fat, which makes for a flavoursome and tasty final product.
We try and give our turkeys as natural a life as possible so they wander in and out of the barn for food, (which is predominately milled from our own oats and wheat grown in nearby fields) during the day. If you walk down our lane you will see them out in the field but watch out as they can be perched on the fences (a form of turkey oneupmanship!) or found in our yard having a dust bath in the wood shavings!
When the time comes, our turkeys are slaughtered on farm by licensed slaughtermen so that stress is kept to an absolute minimum and, obviously, no travelling is involved. Our birds are dry plucked for a quality finish and hung for a minimum of 7 days to allow the flavour to develop. We provide our turkeys dressed and oven ready in individual boxes with giblets and cooking instructions included.
Thanksgiving, early bird or New Year birds are available!
