They raise big breasted large white turkeys, which consistently produce up to 35% breast meat, giving you exceptional value for your money.

Turkey meat is low in fat and high in protein, and its great taste is suited to any family meals, dinner party or celebration. You can have it in pies, meatballs, sauces, salads, sandwiches, and, of course, roasts.
Turkey has more protein per gram than other meats and is also one of the leanest meats available. Its high protein content and good source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, tryptophan and B vitamins, make for one of the “14 superfoods that will change your life”, according to the book SuperFoods*
