Organic Whole Turkey, Previously Frozen

The traditional centrepiece to any celebration table this Christmas

When a big celebration comes around and you have a lot of mouths to feed, turn to an organic whole turkey. Super-succulent and mouth-wateringly tasty, cook this bird to golden perfection for an extraordinary Christmas feast. Whether your guests love white meat, brown meat or both, there'll be plenty to go around. And there's nothing more dramatic and impressive than carrying the whole bird to the table to be carved – it's the ideal way to make a special occasion even more special. We have also included the giblets to make a super tasty gravy.

We only rear Traditional Bronze Organic Turkeys, an old-fashioned breed that provides a bird with fantastic flavour and an even coverage of meat. The natural flavour of the bird is made even better by slow growth to maturity. This takes up to 24 weeks and results in meat that’s reliably juicy and tasty, with a tender texture and just the right amount of fat. All of our turkeys are dry plucked and hung for 7 days so the meat is soft and flavoursome, without any shrinkage in the oven.

At The Organic Butchery it is important to us that our suppliers mirror our high-welfare standards. Our Turkeys come from Walters Turkeys in Berkshire; where they are slow-grown and have plenty of space to roam, run and indulge their natural instincts. They are one of the few organic turkey producers in the country that hang and dry pluck their turkeys in the traditional way.

We agree that it's important to know where your turkey has come from and how it's been reared. Our organic turkey’s come from Walter’s Turkey’s in Berkshire. This Soil Association certified organic farm produce the finest quality Christmas turkeys by carefully selecting slow growing breeds that reach full maturity naturally. All turkeys have plenty of space to run about in and enjoy natural daylight.
From late summer the turkey’s live in large airy barns that open on to green downland fields.  Every day they explore their natural surroundings pecking at the grass and bales in the fresh air.  At night they are in large, straw bedded barns with plenty of room. They are fed on high quality organic feed (a mix of wheat, barley and oats). They are one of the few organic turkey producers in the country that hang and dry pluck their turkeys in the traditional way. 

We only rear Bronze turkeys, an old-fashioned breed that provides a carcass with fantastic flavour and even coverage of meat. The natural flavour of the bird is made even better by slow growth to natural maturity. This takes 24 weeks and results in meat that's reliably juicy and tasty, with a tender texture and just the right amount of fat. 

Once slaughtered, all of our turkeys are hung for at least 7 days. This process allows some moisture to evaporate (so you'll see no shrinkage in the oven) and the muscles to relax (so the meat is soft and flavoursome). Hanging, as well as the slow growth of the birds, means cooking times will be a bit shorter than you might expect for intensively reared birds. At 180˚C, plan for 20 to 30 minutes cooking per kilo.

Because our birds are slow grown and the carcasses have been hung, they'll take less time to cook than an intensively reared bird. And you'll see no shrinkage in the oven as they're not full of excess moisture.

  • Remove your bird from the fridge two hours before cooking allowing it to get to room temperature. Reserve your giblets for a delicious gravy accompaniment
  • It is best to remove the trussing string on the turkey before cooking. Do not stuff the main cavity as this prevents the turkey from cooking properly, instead opt for an apple, lemon or onion
  • Preheat your oven to 230°C/ 210°C fan
  • Sprinkle the turkey with salt and pepper and place in a deep bottomed roasting tray turkey breast side down, cover loosely with tin foil
  • Cook the turkey at this temperature for the first 20-60 minutes depending on size, before reducing the heat to 190°C/ 170°C fan for the remaining time
  • Roast for approximately 30 minutes per kg (4kg - 2hr 10mins, 5kg 2hr 15mins-2hr 30mins, 6kg 2hr 30mins-2hr 45mins)
  • Everyone loves crispy skin, so remove your foil and turn your turkey on its back for the last 20-30 minutes of roasting time
  • Remove from the oven, cover loosely with foil and rest well before carving - to test when your turkey is done, pierce the thickest part of the thigh and check that the juices run clear
  • Whilst resting, pour the juices from your roasting tray into a saucepan and reduce over a high heat to make the most delectable jus
