John and his family have been growing turkeys for over 50 years using traditional methods and ensuring the highest animal welfare. Serving Sizes At Bottom of Page Why Buy From Us & John Howe Turkeys? Whether you purchase your Christmas Turkey from a farm or a butcher, it is important to ask the following questions:
    • Is the turkey genuinely free range?
    Often turkeys are advertised as free range, even though they have minimal access to outside space. White turkeys are typically barn reared, but advertised alongside free range bronze birds, which can be misleading.
    • Has the turkey been plucked by hand (Dry Plucked)?
    A significant proportion of birds on the market have been wet plucked. This means the entire bird has been dipped in hot water, which contains high bacteria levels.
    • Has live transportation been used?
    Many large farms rear their birds on more than one Farm which means that even though you are sold the image of a locally produced bird; that is not necessarily the case, as birds have been transported large distances for processing.
    • Has the turkey been game hung?
    The turkey’s flavour, in part, comes from being game hung for at least two weeks.
    • How long was the Turkey reared for?
    The best turkeys are picked from a number of different slow growing breeds reared over at least 6 months. Modern techniques use fast growing turkeys fed on an intensive ration. The aim is to produce the finished turkeys the desired weight in the least possible time.      A slow growing, fully matured bird will cook better and taste better   We remove the legs and wings leaving only the crown which is the bone in breast meat, easy to cook and to carve.

Sometimes white and light-green Penicillium moulds may dot the rind, adding a bit of pepperiness. It is one of our most savoury goat’s cheeses, with a mellow, rounded flavour and a dense and silky texture. The Innes Log is matured in London and is exclusive to Neal’s Yard Dairy.
