Traditional Slow Grown Dry Plucked White Turkeys

Our farmer John uses six different breeds of turkey to ensure all weights required by our customers are from fully matured female birds. Fed a natural diet and housed in buildings giving both natural light and ventilation while providing essential weather protection. The fully matured birds are then dry plucked & hung for a minimum of 14 days to dry age before being dressed for sale to mature & develop the special flavour & texture unique to this traditional method.

Free Range Slow Grown Dry Plucked Bronze Turkeys

We have a limited number of free range slow grown dry plucked Bronze Turkeys available so order early to avoid missing out!

Gammon or Ham

Many people are unsure of the difference between Gammon & Ham – the answer? Gammon becomes Ham when cooked. We can provide you with either.

 

Cooked Ham Varieties

Cooked hams are readily available in store over the festive period - there is no need to pre-order.

  • McCartney’s Plain Ham 
  • McCartney’s Honey Glazed Ham 
  • McCartney’s Honey Glazed Ham with Cloves 

All of the above are sold fully cooked in a vacuum pack for convenient storage. Allow approximately 1/2lb (225g) per serving

To reheat:

Simply slice off the required amount for each meal & either heat on a plate in the oven covered with tinfoil and add a few drops of water to prevent drying. Or cover with some cling film & heat in the microwave until hot!

 

Gammon

  • Boneless Gammon - readily available in store - no need to pre-order.
  • Bone-in Gammon - Order only
  • Smoked-Gammon - Order only

All of the above are sold in a vacuum pack for convenient storage. Allow approximately 1/2lb (225g) per serving + 1lb for cooking.

To Cook:

Our Gammons are mild cured & do not require steeping in water at home before cooking.

Place in a saucepan of water & bring to the boil, drain the water, refill & simmer for 20 minutes per 1 lb (454g) until cooked – why not try boiling in Coca Cola, Apple Juice or Cider for something different.

The cooked gammon (ham) can then be glazed as desired.  Peel off all the skin – make a couple of horizontal incisions and you should be able to peel it off in strips, use a clean dry cloth to protect your hands from the heat. Now score the fat with criss-cross cuts, making a diamond pattern stud a clove into the centre of each diamond shape if desired

Glazing suggestions include:

  • Highgrove Ham Glaze (available in store)
  • Local Honey (available in store) & Soft Brown Sugar
  • Honey & Mustard
  • Marmalade

Place the cooked gammon on a baking tray and add your glaze. Bake uncovered in the oven at 180*C for 30 minutes or until golden. Leave to rest for about 30 minutes before carving.
