|Breeds||Normally a single fast-growing stag turkey bred quickly.||Traditional breeds, mostly hens.|
|Care||Reared in crowded, intensive, controlled environments. Even “free range” birds may only have spent a few days outside.||Reared in spacious barns and allowed to roam freely in farm fields as soon as the birds are mature.|
|Diet||Often fed with cheap grain and artificial additives to accelerate growth.||Only fed a natural cereal and vegetable protein diet without additives or animal proteins.|
|Maturity||Often slaughtered when the bird reaches two months old. Water may be added to increase weight.||Fully mature adults reared for at least 24 weeks which are heavier and have more meat.|
|Taste||Younger frozen birds are normally dry and tasteless when cooked.||Dense meat and natural marbling ensure a succulent taste and texture.|
|Transportation||Often transported long distances, plucked under water by machine and instantly frozen.||Birds are grown, prepared and supplied on the farm premises.|
|Freshness||Usually frozen perhaps months before they reach your table.||Always fresh. You can collect and cook on the same day.|
|Price||Can be cheap per pound, but you are often paying for water and poor-quality birds.||Better overall value and taste.|
|Guarantees||Supermarkets rarely offer taste guarantees.||Each of our turkeys carries a quality guarantee. If you’re dissatisfied for any reason, we refund your money.|
