Christmas Poultry with Provenance
All our poultry is free range and sourced as locally as possible.
Our Traditional Wirral Turkeys are bred by our farmer, Sally Lee, in Willaston, Wirral. The bronze and black birds originate back from their Norfolk cousins and mature naturally and slowly in a free range environment. This gives our customer the best flavour and gives the animal the life and respect it deserves. The birds are kept inside in a large, spacious shed at night time for predator protection and let out during the day within the farm’s generous pasture. They eat a natural diet from the land and with added oats and wheat. Nothing artificial or anything that would promote unnatural growth is added to any feed. The birds live for over 6 months having been born in May each year. This lifetime is over double what many ‘free range‘ commercial birds enjoy which are bred and fed to grow artificially quickly.
Our turkeys are killed on the farm which reduces any stress. The birds are dry (hand) plucked and then game hung for 2 weeks with their giblets to develop even more flavour. We do not use any gas flushing. We believe our process from birth to your table is the best possible we can make it.
Our geese are from Shropshire and are from the Norfolk-based Danish Legarth strain of breeding stock. As with all our livestock they live a natural life roaming acres of countryside and have a natural diet free from additives. They too are killed on the farm for minimum stress. Exceptional poultry from Will and Jenny; our exceptional farmers at Brisbourne Geese.
