Christmas 2021

We produce Christmas turkeys, cockerels, venison, lamb at Cuckoo Farm. 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 and pigs go to a small local abattoir.

All our birds are sold oven ready with giblets.

We are selling lamb and venison boxes fresh if ordered for collection/delivery before December or frozen at Christmas. We may offer joints of venison, lamb and pork at Christmas too.

Please refer to the information below to help you decide on the size of bird you need.

This is a guide only: All our birds will feed 6 people, the size you need depends on appetites, vegetables etc and if you want leftovers!!! We try to give you a bird within 2lbs. (1 kilogram plus or minus) of your requested weight. We will only charge you for up to 1kg above your requested weight.

If you are really concerned about excess, we may be able to cut your bird in half or remove the legs so you could freeze some to cook at a later date. Contact us about this after you have ordered.

All our turkeys will fit in a standard oven.

Our cockerels are usually between 6 and 12lbs in weight. The information below is for guidance. However, this year, the Soil Association has changed the rules so we are having to rear a different strain of cockerel this year. We are not sure how big they will grow.

Organic Christmas Cockerel 6 - 8lbs up to 4 people
Organic Christmas Cockerel 8 - 10lbs up to 6
