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!

Our free range turkey crowns are the perfect alternative if you don’t want to cook a whole bird.
With our turkey crowns, we joint the bird so you have the breast joint with the wings attached.
Unless otherwise requested, we will provide you with the leg joints separately wrapped so you can freeze them and use them after ChristmasChoose Now
White and Bronze Turkeys
Free range, slow growing traditional turkeys
As fully mature, our turkeys put down a natural layer of fat which makes for a tasty, flavoursome bird and reduces cooking time.
Our bronze turkeys have a slightly “gamier” flavour and, whilst still very much a white meat, they have a slight speckling to the meat which is down to the dark feathers.Choose Now
Our geese come in from a hatchery in Devon as day old goslings in April. As soon as they “feather up” they have daily access to our fields below the Ashford Hangers.
As well as the grass, the geese are fed on a diet predominately milled from our own wheat and oats, which we grow and harvest locally.Choose Now
