Christmas 2018

Christmas Order Collections 2018

We are looking forward to seeing customers to collect their Christmas orders on Saturday 22nd December between 9am and 4pm at the farm.

We expect the weather to be reasonable but please drive slowly down the drive as you may meet something coming the other way.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2019.

We produce Christmas turkeys, cockerels, venison, lamb at Cuckoo Farm. This year our geese have been reared free range for us by a local farmer. At Christmas our birds are dry plucked and finished by hand, before hanging to improve flavour and tenderness. The deer are shot, hung and butchered on the farm. Lambs go to a small local abattoir.

All our birds are sold oven ready.

Christmas Prices 2018

Once we have received your order request we will review this and send you an order confirmation email. Please refer to this for details on exactly how much to pay and how to make payment. For customers collecting from Cuckoo Farm a 30 deposit is required. Courier customers will need to pay the amount in full. Please don't make a payment until you have received your order confirmation!
