Bishop Vale Turkeys
Bill and Emma Yeats of Bishop Vale farm have been rearing our outdoor bred poultry for more than a decade. Their traditional bronze birds from North Somerset are free to roam and roost as they would naturally. Phil met Bill and Emma in 2012 when he was growing our Christmas turkeys himself. Having seen what a great job Bill and Emma were doing rearing organic chickens for Better Food it felt right to ask them to supply our stores.
“Turkeys are sensitive birds. I learnt that to give them a content time in our care you need to attend to every detail of their free range environment,” explains Phil, “from the quality of the feed and night time shelter to their bedding. This is why I visit Bill and Emma to assess the needs of the birds and plan for the year ahead. And you know what: every year customers tell me these are the best tasting turkeys ever”.
