Turkeys - order now for 2020
from the farm. Our turkeys are a mixture of Norfolk Blacks and Bronzes they
are (very) free range and slowly grown.
our woodland managers.. Pecking around and enjoying the outdoor life under
the 3000 young trees we have planted at the Inkpot. They nibble on leaves,
seeds, berries and insects in a large area and get moved on to a new area
each week, working their way around the whole field edge, foraging and
fertilising as they go.
The general recommendation is 2lb per person.. but get more if you have big
eaters, or want plenty for making other meals and freezing for another day.
Inkpot Organic Turkeys are £15.95/kg plus P&P. We have turkeys of a variety
of sizes, but they will be reserved on a first come, basis. If we do not
have the exact size you want it is best to go bigger and make a spare meal
or two for the freezer (One family of 4 has made 24 meals from one of our

and reusable) to keep the bird frozen is £7. Courier fees are £10 on top of

"The Turkey last year was probably the best I have ever tasted. I
suggest that you take a little home-made Crab Apple jelly and massage it
into the flesh before roasting - fantastic and Ho Ho Ho - ours didn't
last many meals!!!!" Brian
"A beautiful looking bird, nicely proportioned. The aroma suggests it
has been well hung. Excellent flavour to the dark meat. All in all a
fine eating experience" Great Taste Award Judge
"A well-reared turkey, the flavour of the meat came through well" Great
Taste Award Judge.
Here are some fantastic ideas from an Inkpot Turkey buyer
"So I've been toying with buying an Inkpot turkey on and off for the
past year since Hannah started selling them. Firstly, the cost put me
off - £40+ seemed like a lot to spend on one bird, until I asked around
and realised I was very much out of touch with what intensively farmed
shop/butchers turkeys cost. There's also only two of us eating meat on
Christmas Day in this house, and I really didn’t want to have to
think about making a thousand meals with cooked turkey.
However, after reading another person's review about how they cooked the
whole bird and then portioned it up and re-freezing, I thought I would
give it a go. So I bought a bird, defrosted it in the fridge for 48
hours (it defrosted enough for me to joint it) and now I have a
re-frozen turkey crown for Christmas day, and enough portions for at
least 10 meals (including soup and stock from the bones yet to come.)
Be aware with re-freezing - as long as the defrosting is done in a
fridge, for a maximum of 72 hours, you can re-freeze the meat. If you
take off the drumsticks and wings first after 48 hours, it will then
allow more air to the rest of the bird, and it will be easier to joint it."
