A Quality Life
The incredible environment that we provide for our turkeys to live in allows them to spend long, leisurely periods searching for bugs and berries, and expressing their natural behaviour in numerous other ways.
Throughout the day – as with all our free range birds – they come and go as they please, entering their light, airy buildings for feed and water as and when they wish.
Such care repays us generously in terms of quality and flavour.
So, not surprisingly, we are keen to enhance our turkeys quality of life – from providing accommodation with an abundance of natural light (which encourages them to express their natural behaviour indoors as well as out) to enriching their environment with straw bales, perches, lengths of rope and various other items of interest for them to peck at and play with.
The wonderful results are plain to see – and taste.
Our traditional Norfolk Black and Norfolk Bronze turkeys are renowned for their succulent meat and gamey flavour. Slow growing, they enjoy a cereal-based diet supplemented by insects, grubs and berries devoured during foraging excursions.
Tnp is helping to preserve many rare breeds of turkeys by farming them on a commercial scale to supply our retail customers – including Bourbon Red, Slate Grey and Narragansett. All these birds were brought to this country from the Americas some hundreds of years ago. They all retain their original characteristics and provide the consumer with a true taste from the past.
