Turkey, stuffing and sumptuous gifts; what more could you want this Christmas? How about ensuring that all those things are sustainably sourced and ethically produced? Proving that organically produced birds make for a better bite, Rhug Estate – the premium field-to-plate farm in Denbighshire, Wales, owned and run by Lord Newborough – will be offering plump turkeys, Christmas meat boxes and so much more to ensure this Christmas is the best yet.
THE MAIN EVENT
Indulge this Christmas in the premium, free-range, 2015 1* Great Taste Award winning Dee Valley bronze turkeys from Rhug Estate. Organically bred, these famed feathered fowl have lived a life of pure luxury on the 12,500-acre estate, pecking on fertile pastures and being fed the estate’s own farm-produced feed, ensuring the highest quality product. These perfect birds are then supplied to some of the UK and Middle East’s best restaurants and Michelin-starred kitchens, so you can tuck in knowing you have the tastiest turkey available.
Fancy something a little different? Then opt for an organic, 2014 2* Great Taste Award winning goose from the Rhug Estate. These deluxe geese are hand fed on home-grown oats, creating a rich, dark gamey taste that’s ideal for festive feasts. This exclusive bird is reared in small numbers, so make your Christmas order quickly. Both birds can be ordered online or by phone for delivery to your door ahead of the Christmas celebrations, or collect in person from our stall in Borough Market.
