We buy our Turkeys from a family run farm based in Barkby, Leicestershire, who specialise in producing high quality Turkeys ready for Christmas. At Elms Farm we are strong believers in providing you with locally sourced and high welfare meat. We will not change that belief just for Christmas!
Your Christmas Turkey will have been reared less than 20 miles away: you will be helping to support the local economy and the environment too.
The farm rear Free Range and Traditional Bronze and White Turkeys that can be ordered as whole birds or Turkey Crowns. The Turkeys are on the farm for at least 22 weeks, which means they are twice the age of fast growing commercial turkey when they have reached full maturity. Turkeys are available to order in sizes from 4kg (9lbs) to 13.6kg (30lbs)
Our Cockerels and Chickens are supplied by Packington Free Range. A family farm based in Staffordshire, they have been free range farming for over 80 years. They are passionate about provenance, and sustainable and ethical farming. These values drive their work to create an environmentally sound and welfare-orientated farm. Just like us at Elms Farm, they are LEAF accredited.
Christmas Gammon and Pork
All of our pork is supplied from Packington Free Range. We cure our own bacon and gammons and can supply them to you as raw gammon or cooked. Our sausages are all handmade at Costock and we will have a range of flavours available throughout the Christmas period. Pigs in blankets made on the farm will be available from the beginning of December in frozen packs.
Here at Elms Farm, we rear our native breeds of Cattle, from Northern Dairy Shorthorns, Herefords, North Devons to our Pedigree Dexter Cattle. All our cattle are reared in large family groups and are solely grass reared and finished. We do not feed them any extra grain to grow and finish them faster, they are ready when they are ready! Elms Farm is accredited by the Red Tractor and LEAF marques.
We will have a full range of beef available. Our home grown dry aged beef will be our show stopper this Christmas. We will also be supplying a range of locally sourced beef from local farmers with high welfare standards.
