Free Range Turkey at Packington Free Range

Packington Free Range Turkeys

We are passionate about our Free Range Poultry and incredibly proud of our award-winning Free Range Chickens and Cockerels, but we were repeatedly asked by our customers, “Why don’t you do Free Range Turkeys?” Demand from our customers continued to rise until 2018, when we reared our first Turkeys.

As with all our Poultry, we are promise to rear our Bronze Turkeys to the same high standards you’ve come to expect from Packington Free Range. As a result, we have decided to rear Free Range Turkeys without compromise.

Our family have farmed in the heart of rural Staffordshire since 1930. Together, we have a lifetime of working knowledge, passed down from our father, grandfather and great-grandfather. It’s this familiarity with the land that helped us develop our traditional free-range approach to rearing our animals, and passion to provide low-density, environmentally sound and welfare-oriented farms.

How we rear our Turkeys

We receive our chicks from award-winning breeder Paul Kelly, of Kelly Bronze. We choose to take our birds as day-old chicks to ensure we are responsible for the welfare of the birds for their entire lives. This way we can guarantee we maintain our high standards at all times and ensure your Free Range Turkey is the absolute best it can be. Our efforts have been rewarded not just by our happy customers, but also by the Great Taste Judging Panel who awarded us a coveted one star for our Free Range Turkey.

Bronze Turkeys have an exceptional reputation for good flavour and succulence, which is perfect for Christmas Day. We rear our Turkeys outside, where they have access to our fields of traditional English pasture, as well as shelter and protection from foxes from our polytunnels. We tend our Turkeys to an age we know maximises the flavour of the bird. Once ready, we process our birds in state of the art, BRC accredited facilities. We package each Free Range Turkey into an individual branded box for your convenience, complete with tips, cooking instructions and recipe inspiration.

We hope you enjoy your Free Range Turkey as much as we have enjoyed looking after it! Order your Free Range Turkey for this Christmas here.
