Our Turkeys

Our Turkeys are completely Organic and free range and have access to pasture and orchards during daylight hours. Turkeys eat a lot of grass and unlike other poultry they love weeds -particularly nettles. Hooray! We keep a rare breed called the Norfolk Black which grows slowly in comparision with commercial strains. Its a strong hardy bird with an old fashioned flavour.

Traditional Farm Fresh Turkeys.

Six Brothers produces traditional farm fresh turkeys - the sale of these is uniquely in the hands of small farms like ours. You can't buy one in the supermarket. Supermarket turkeys - the free range turkeys, even the organic ones, are killed plucked and gutted and packed within a few minutes at enormous processing factories dealing with thousands of birds an hour. A Traditional Farm Fresh Turkey is killed and plucked and then hung in cold store for two weeks so the flavours can develop and the meat can mature. It is then gutted and dressed. They are a work of art, not a print.

Welfare.

Welfare is important to us. All our turkeys are killed, plucked and dressed by hand, by me the farmer, on our Somerset farm near Glastonbury.. No terrifying last journey on the motorway to an abattoir in a plastic crate. They are handled individually, gently, and they are treated with respect and with compassion. Our turkey is produced in exactly the same way it was 100 years ago – except they are better fed and probably more kindly treated.

About Our Farm

In these days of giant commercial farms producing food on an industrial scale, Six Brothers is microscopic. We are only producing about 200 turkeys a year. They don’t all have names…..but some of them do, and we believe small scale production leads to better welfare for animals - we don’t take lightly the responsibility that goes with farming.

Six Brothers is in organic conversion with the Soil Association and under the organisation's rigorous standards we are producing fully organic turkeys for Christmas 2008.

We keep a few cattle and some sheep to eat the grass when there aren’t many birds on the farm in the spring time. We have two sheep dogs called Beau and Fly and six very noisy, but wildly amusing and brilliant sons. There really are six brothers!
