Christmas is on the horizon and that means the beautiful Bronze turkey takes centre stage. There may be all manner of alternative options but sometimes, traditional is best. This, our Classic Christmas Turkey Hamper, is designed to help create a stress-free, proper tasty Christmas Day. Delivered free on either the 20th, 21st or 22nd December (it's up to you!), in there you'll find:
- 5-6kg free range Bronze turkey (including giblets) from farms in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk
- 454g versatile chipolatas
- 350g dry-cured streaky bacon
- 454g premium ground sausagemeat
- 150g free range Cambridgeshire goose fat
- A recipe booklet and thermometer courtesy of our friends at Gressingham
- Something to help ease the wallet in the New Year
We have worked closely with Gressingham to source Turkeys from a network of fantastic traditional free-range farms across East Anglia and beyond. Naturally-reared, free-range and plump-breasted, with a beautiful natural layer of fat, the Bronze turkey makes for a delicious, succulent bird and provides a rich, flavoursome gravy. The trimmings, as with all of our fresh meat, are all free-range and native breed, sourced from some of our favourite local, independent farmers.
The bird in this hamper is 5-6kg and will serve 10-12 punters. If you're looking for something a bit larger, our Large Christmas Turkey Hamper contains a 6-7kg bird and is more of a 14-16 person event.
Just one final note, after a time to hang, the birds are hand-plucked. This process and their natural dark plumage may leave small black feather quills in the skin. Not something to worry about, merely a renowned feature of the bronze breed.
All of our festive boxes are delivered fresh to your door in the days leading up to Christmas. The available delivery dates are Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd December. If you’re out when your delivery arrives, our drivers will leave your order with your neighbours or in a safe place of your choosing - please specify at the checkout.

‘Bronze’ is actually a breed of turkey. Produced in the 18th century by crossing British turkeys with wild American turkeys, the Bronze is now a prized variety. Named for their shimmering bronze plumage, they are a slow growing breed with great flavour
