Our Barn Reared Christmas Turkeys enjoy the freedom of large open barns, with plenty of fresh air and a wholesome diet of cereals plus whole and natural crushed oats from neighbouring farmers. From our generations of experience we understand that oats are fantastic natural feed for poultry, offering high health benefits to the flock with their slow burn fats ensuring the highest quality meat and famous creamy taste synonymous with our Barn Reared Christmas Turkeys.
Adlington is proud of the standard of care all our Christmas turkeys receive, including three times the amount of barn space per turkey decreed by the EEC and a bed of soft, deep litter barley and oat straw that is refreshed every day. All our barn reared turkeys naturally have constant access to fresh water and food.
Our fastidious feeding regime, combined with game hanging in strictly controlled conditions for 12 days truly ensures a simply delicious soft texture and superb taste.
