Christmas Turkeys
We will once again be taking orders for delicious Appledore Free Range Bronze Turkeys from the beginning of November. Our poultry is slow grown to full maturity and hung to ensure an excellent flavour and reared under strict codes of to ensure high welfare standards.

Christmas Geese
Our traditionally reared free range geese live a long and healthy life enjoying natural diets and the freedom to graze open-grass paddocks, foraging for berries in the hedgerows and orchards also helps develop the natural and distinctive flavour that makes Appledore Geese an ideal choice for the festive season.

After reaching full maturity the birds are slaughtered on the farm, avoiding the stress to the birds of long distance transportation. They are then dry plucked and hung for at least seven days to mature and develop the natural flavours unique to this method of production. Available in 3 sizes Small, Medium or Large for 4, 6 or 8 people respectively. Appledore Geese are wrapped in greaseproof paper and presented in a carry-home box, along with, vacuum-packed giblets and a recipe leaflet with easy-to-follow cooking tips and recipes.

To save you time and money we are once again selling Grasmere Essential Kits these include a small 4 lb gammon joint (unsmoked), 1lb Lincolnshire Sausagemeat, 1 lb Lincolnshire Chipolatas, 1lb streaky bacon and Sage & Onion Stuffing.

We will also offer the Grassmere Boxing Day Kit with a cooked ham joint, 9 cocktail sausage rolls, haslet, pork pie and 2 scotch eggs.

Please order by 30th November to avoid disappointment.

The Chapman family have farmed at Rectory Farm since 1988 having taken it over from an uncle, David Bull whose family had farmed here for many years. Over the years the farm has seen many changes, with Poultry & Christmas tree sales in the late 1980’s, a small farm shop to sell the farm’s produce to start with followed by the County’s first Maize Maze in 2003 which took the form of the farm’s scarecrow.

The Farm is now open for two seasons each year:

• The Milton Maze Pumpkin Patch 16th - 17th October & 23rd – 31st October
• Christmas Season 27th November – 23rd December (Closed Mondays)
