Get involved with #BuyMyTurkey day

The NFU's #BuyMyTurkey campaign returns for another year on 6 December and we want you to get involved. 

The campaign encourages shoppers to buy their Christmas turkey direct from the farm where it was produced. You can find your local turkey producer by putting your postcode into the NFU's Turkey Finder

To help the campaign and encourage the public to use the Turkey Finder we are asking NFU members and members of the public to post across social media using the hashtag - #BuyMyTurkey - on Friday 6 December. Last year the posts were a huge success with over 3.3million impressions on Twitter, while our Turkey Finder had more than 9,000 views. 

NFU turkey group chair Michael Bailey said:

“The NFU Turkey Finder is a fantastic free promotional tool for any farm fresh turkey business selling direct to the consumer from the farm gate. The online postcode search tool is easy to use and directs new customers to your farm gate sales, which is beneficial as the highest margins will always be from direct sales at the farm gate.

“It is also a great way to engage with the public and showcase the high environmental and welfare standards we produce to."
