What makes our turkeys so special
|Boltons Park Farm Turkeys||Standard Turkeys|
|We use six slow growing, traditional bronze and black breeds to provide a good spread of sizes.||Breeds||Usually just one modern fast-growing breed per flock, bread for rapid food conversion and profit.|
|Reared in spacious open barns with natural light and ventilation, birds can choose to be in or out of the weather. Birds have roosting perches and welfare stations to keep them occupied.||Welfare||Reared in crowded intensive conditions in controlled environment housing, not seeing the light of day. Free Range birds may only have been outdoors for a matter of weeks towards the end of their lives.|
|Natural balanced cereal diet. Over 70% cereal based. No animal protein or growth promoting additives.||Diet||Some use of growth promoters and artificial additives to accelerate growth.|
|Fully mature adult birds, five to six months old in all weight categories. This provides a dense, marbled meat with a succulent texture when cooked.||Age||Processed when immature upon reaching desired weight - often only two months old. Usually dry and tasteless when cooked.|
|Prepared on the farm premises with minimum stress to the birds. Dry plucked by hand. Hung long-legged for two weeks at a constant 3.5 degrees until Christmas - no blast chilling no added enhancements.||Production||Usually transported long distances for production. Plucked under water by machines. Not hung, factory-processed and then instantly frozen, chilled and/or gas-treated. Water often added to increase the weight.|
|Each Boltons Park Farm Turkey is bought directly from the farmer and carries our quality guarantee, which includes a money-back commitment in the unlikely event of dissatisfaction.||Guarantees||No similar guarantees offered.|
