Golden Turkey Quality Assurance

We are proud members of The Traditional Farm-fresh Turkey Association, who are a group of turkey farmers that all adhere to the same traditional methods of turkey farming. Known as Golden Turkey farmers, they set the standard for the very finest Christmas turkeys.

 

What’s so special about a Golden Turkey?

 

Our Quality Assurance Code guarantees that our turkeys are reared:

 

  • To highest welfare standards

  • Using slowly grown breeds to full maturity

  • Regularly bedded with straw or soft wood shavings.

  • Fed rations containing at least 70% grain with no animal protein. Never given additives for growth promotion.

  • Housed in buildings that have excellent light and ventilation. Free range turkeys have daily access to grazing for at least 11 weeks.

  • Slaughtered on the farm to avoid stress of transportation.

  • Dry plucked, finished by hand

  • Game hung for at least 7 days

  • Processing facilities inspected by the Environment Health officer

  • Independently inspected every year to ensure that the Golden Turkey Code of Conduct is adhered too.

  • Supplied with a money-backed guarantee in the unlikely event of consumer dissatisfaction.

 

Look out for the Golden Turkey symbol. You can only buy Golden Turkeys directly from the farm gate and quality butchers.
