This season, back British farming by choosing British turkey for your Christmas meal.
There are many reasons and ways to Back British Farming - buying turkey directly from the farm where it has been produced ensures you're supporting British farmers’ high animal welfare standards, and choosing a bird that has been fed a natural diet, bred for its natural flavour and reared locally.
Match up your British turkey dinner with delicious British produce by checking out our What’s In Season? poster to see a list of seasonal British fruit and veg to look out for in the shops.
You can also download our British Turkey leaflet which contains practical tips from preparation to cooking times.
Remember, when shopping at a supermarket you can back British farming by looking carefully at the country of origin labelling and keeping an eye out for the Red Tractor logo with the Union flag to ensure you are purchasing fully-traceable food produced on British farms.
