A Rick Stein food hero! Full on flavour, a bit gamey with a smaller breast and finer texture, a real experience.
All our turkeys are free range, additive and antibiotic free and are reared on organic meadowland.
For four generations the Peele family has been rearing the Norfolk Black turkey, a breed that they saved from extinction. The Norfolk Black originated in South America and was introduced to Europe by the Spanish explorer Pedro Nino around 1500. It has striking jet-black plumage, but the Norfolk Black is most celebrated for its finely-textured meat which has a slightly gamey flavour.
They allow our turkeys to mate naturally and all the poults are reared outside and allowed to mature slowly. The feed is mixed on the farm using their own home-grown wheat, barley, oats and beans and whole corn is fed to add a ‘bloom’ to the finished birds. To enhance these traditional rearing methods we hand pluck and hang our birds for at least a week, and every turkey is prepared for your table by hand. An average oven-ready weight of 10-12 lbs (hens) and 18-21 lbs (stags) is normal for the Norfolk Black turkey.
