Great British Food Revival – Turkey

Great to see the Great British Food Revival raising awareness to real tasty free range Turkeys. And, this time, not making the mistake of telling viewers to visit their supermarket.

It was especially interesting for me, to see that bronze turkeys have faded from popularity because supermarkets do not like the dark feather stubs left on the bird. As usual nothing to do with flavour or quality! A typical consequence of the modern food industry disconnecting producers from consumers.

So if you are looking for a great Turkey this Christmas use our special Turkey map to find your local free range turkey direct from the producer.

In most parts of the country you can order now for Christmas delivery. Or you could pay now and collect your turkey and meet the farmer, so you can get the full story of how your turkey has been reared.

Once you have organised your Christmas meal centrepiece you can use BigBarn to get all the best trimmings and some brilliant presents.
