Christmas 2020

We produce Christmas turkeys, cockerels, venison, lamb at Cuckoo Farm. This year our geese have been reared free range for us by a local farmer. At Christmas our birds are dry plucked and finished by hand, before hanging to improve flavour and tenderness. The deer are shot, hung and butchered on the farm. Lambs go to a small local abattoir.

All our birds are sold oven ready.

Please refer to the information below to help you decide on the size of bird you need.

This is a guide only: All our birds will feed 6 people, the size you need depends on appetites, vegetables etc and if you want leftovers!!! We try to give you a bird within 2lbs. (1 kilogram plus or minus) of your requested weight. We will only charge you for up to 1kg above your requested weight.

If you are really concerned about excess, we may be able to cut your bird in half or remove the legs so you could freeze some to cook at a later date. Contact us about this after you have ordered.
