Finding the perfect turkey can be difficult at Christmas, especially if you are trying to find an organic, free range turkey that comes in on budget. Thankfully here at Nourishing we have done the hard work so you don't have to!
Our No.1 choice this Christmas (and where we have ordered ours from!) is Gazegill Organic Farm in Lancashire. Here their turkeys are hatched at the beginning of the summer and then slowly fattened on organic feed over 6 months, as nature intended. The turkeys live in large barns and are actively encouraged to run in the farm's fields. This allows the turkeys leg muscles to develop properly helping it to happily walk about and carry it's ever increasing and yummy breast! They are killed and hung in the traditional way ensuring a wonderful flavour and succulent, tender meat. Prices start at a very reasonable £54 for a small turkey to feed 10-12 up to £72 for a large to feed 14-16 with leftovers. Gazegill still have turkeys available and they will deliver straight to your front in time for Christmas.
Having shopped around Gazegill give you excellent value for money and match or beat many high street retailers and other organic farms on price. However, what Gazegill give you extra is complete traceability from field to plate and a friendly voice at the end of the phone if you have any questions about their farm or delivery.
If your budget doesn't quite stretch to organic turkey then you might want to consider buying 2 organic chickens. You could even smother them with different flavoured butters to make the table more exciting. For example cover one with a lemon butter and one with a garlic and chive. And who doesn't want to smother things in butter at Christmas time?! If you are dairy free then just make your 'butters' using coconut oil or goose fat for extra crispy skin.
Whichever bird you choose for your Christmas feast, remember the key word here is Organic which means extra Omega three fatty acids for health and extra taste for a perfect and truly nourishing Festive meal for your family. Enjoy x
