Christmas 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.
