Great Grove Poultry is a traditional family run farm. All of our Norfolk Turkeys and Geese are free to roam around our 35 acres of Norfolk woodland and grassland enhancing a stress free environment.
Using an aged old method of farming we allow our traditional Norfolk Turkey and Geese plenty of time to grow to maturity without using any growth promoters or antibiotics, giving a far superior quality of bird with natural gamey flavours.
Everything is processed on the farm, graded and hung in large chillers (minimum 10 days) to make them exceptionally tender, adding all the natural flavours that this type of production depends on.
We are a small family farm who specialise in producing quality turkeys and geese just for the Christmas market. The farm is approx 35 acres in size and covered in woodland and grassland which is used to rear our poultry in a stress free environment
To produce the tastiest and most succulent poultry that you can buy. This is achieved through the various traditional methods that we have continued to use over several years of producing quality poultry. Although this is a much more costly way of rearing and processing compared to today’s factory methods, the end result is far superior.
Why are our birds so different?
- We only use slow growing strains that are grown to full maturity 24-27 weeks old which gives them a layer of fat to aid with the cooking to make the meat nice and juicy.
- Free-access to grass and woodland and shelter if needed
- No growth promoters or hormones, a mainly cereal based diet
- Delayed evisceration, to gain all those natural, gamey flavours
- Dry plucked by hand by people who care
Once eviscerated the birds are wrapped in greaseproof, placed in a special carry home box with some herbs and a recipe leaflet, which gives advice on how to cook it and cooking times... so you can’t go wrong!
