Size Guide: Turkeys
Our free range turkeys are grown for us using traditional farming methods in Randalstown, where they are allowed to roam freely in outdoor pasture and naturally ventilated barns with plenty of space and fresh air. We select slow growing breeds such as “Wirral supreme” and “Wold” which grow to maturity over several months and feed on locally grown cereals and vegetable protein. Once slaughtered the birds are dry plucked with wax before being dry aged under refrigeration for at least fourteen days to develop an even fuller flavour.
Below is a guide we have put together to give you an idea of what size turkey you will need to feed all the family.
