If you are looking for a truly Free Range bird, then look no further than these Norfolk Blacks. Reared using traditional methods by Stuart Perkins on his Castlemead poultry in Somerset, just a few miles from Wiltshire Country Fayre.
Stuart’s turkeys are free to roam and forage on natural grasses and bugs throughout the day and then housed overnight in small groups to keep them safe from predators and the weather. Fed only on locally milled cereals to match the birds’ dietary needs, with no added extras such as additives or hormones, the rest is left to nature.
Not only does this stress-free life produce a fantastic flavoured bird - but these high welfare turkeys require a shorter cooking time thus saving you money and making it easier to cook the ultimate Christmas dinner.
Dry plucked, hand finished and then allowed to hang in cold stores for 10-14 days to allow the fat to marble and the meat to tenderise and develop real depth of flavour, these truly free-range birds will provide deliciously tender meat that will get your taste-buds salivating.
Ever conscious that space is limited in your fridge at Christmas time, we will deliver your turkey no earlier than 4 days before the big day – unless of course you ask for it earlier - when of course we will be happy to oblige.
Not sure what weight to order? About 1lb per person raw weight is recommended. For further advice check out Tony’s video on You Tube – or just give us a call or send an email and we will be happy to help.

Castlemead Poultry,
Radstock, Somerset,


Free to roam, traditionally bred turkeys
A Castlemead turkey is the pièce de resistance for any Christmas table.


Leisurely raised and using traditional farming methods the turkeys are free to roam the surrounding Somerset fields, striding in and out of their freshly bedded shelters where they sleep at night protected from Mr. Fox.
We use only locally milled cereals to match the birds’ dietary needs, with no added extras such as additives or hormones - the rest is left to nature.


The turkeys are moved at night and processed onsite by our dedicated team to reduce the birds’ stress and cut production time.We dry pluck our birds and leave them to mature for 10-14 days before preparing them for your roasting dish. This process is called 'game hanging', allowing the fat to marble and the meat to tenderise resulting in extremely tender and moist meat for melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness. This type of process is costly and can only be done by dry plucking and rearing the birds to maturity, ensuring that they have a hard layer of fat under the skin for depth of flavour.
