Here’s the recipe. 

How to Cook our Free Range, Herb Fed & Award Winning Christmas Turkey to Perfection


  • 1 Herb Fed Bronze Turkey (giblets removed)
  • Grass fed butter, softened
  • 1 clementine, halved
  • 10 sprigs rosemary
  • 10 sprigs thyme
  • 2 white onions, chopped into chunks
  • 2 carrots, chopped into chunks
  • 300g Stuffing (prepare in advance)
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper


  1. Remove your turkey from the fridge 1 hour before roasting, to allow it to reach room temperature
  2. Begin by rubbing butter into every nook and cranny of the bird - until it is evenly spread and every surface is covered, then season generously with salt and pepper
  3. Preheat your oven to the highest temperature it will reach - and prepare a large roasting tin, big enough to hold your bird with room to spare
  4. Next, fill the back cavity of the bird with the herbs, clementine and half your stuffing - packing tightly before turning the bird around and filling the neck cavity with the remainder of the stuffing
  5. Lay your chopped veggies evenly on the bottom of your roasting tin, then place the turkey carefully on top before covering tightly with strong kitchen foil
  6. Place your turkey into the oven and knock the temperature down to 200C, cooking the bird for 35 minutes per kilo of meat
  7. Once cooked insert a sharp knife into the fattest part of the turkey thigh, if the juices run clear and the meat is piping hot & falling apart - your turkey is cooked (if not, it's back into the oven for 20 minute intervals until it is)
  8. Finally but most importantly, rest your turkey for at least 1 hr 30 before carving - perfect timing to prepare your veg and gravy!
