Chistmas at J. Heath & Son

Our festive poultry farmer has been producing turkeys and geese for the Christmas market at his farm in Vines Cross since 1950.​

The flock is slow grown over a period of 6 months which allows for full maturity, establishing a good layer of fat for each bird leading to a happy and contented flock. All of which contribute to a traditional and delicious Christmas centre piece.

As well as geese we can supply both the standard, succulent white turkeys and the richer, gamier bronze turkeys which all live in the fields with space to roam freely and socialise. Just let us know your preference when you place your order.

Our turkeys & geese

Last day for Christmas orders is Tuesday 15th December

ORDERS CAN BE PLACED FROM 9th NOVEMBER

Which turkey is right for me?

We can supply both White & Bronze turkeys.

 

Our White Turkeys

This classic bird produces a succulent, tasty breast meat with generous thighs and wings for those who prefer the darker portions.

Our Bronze Turkeys

The bronze turkey is more closely related to the wild turkey in both appearance and taste. Its richer, gamier taste has risen in popularity recently. 

Please note: Our turkeys are ordered at the untrussed weight (with guts etc.) therefore when you collect your turkey you can expect an approximate drop in cooking weight of up to 15%. Our price per kilo is set to allow for this. 

What size bird do I need?

Remember that the larger the bird then the more meat-to-bone ratio so the better value for money, especially if you’re a fan of the turkey leftovers!
