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 and care for the environment.

After a long and active life, all the birds are allowed to reach full maturity before they are slaughtered on the farm. This avoids 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 traditional method of production.

All Turkeys are wrapped in greaseproof paper and presented in a carry-home box, along with a posy of fresh herbs, vacuum-packed giblets, a pop-up timer and a recipe leaflet with easy-to-follow cooking tips and recipes.

For those catering for a smaller number, turkey crowns are available with only the most succulent of breast and wing meat on the bone – ideal for easy carving.

If you wish to have a small Turkey Butterfly joint (approx. 1.7kg) along with the above items from the Essential Kit we offer the Grasmere Christmas Hamper this also includes Cranberry Sauce.

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:

• Pumpkin Patch 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th and then 26th – 31st October
• Christmas Season 30th November – 23rd December (Closed Mondays)
