These tacos are savoury, slightly smoky and oh so tender. Our organic turkey is lean yet flavourful and is the most convenient and perfect meat for this mid week or weekend meal. Fold them in a soft tortilla with all of the fixings and tuck in. A simple, flavour packed recipe from Jenny G, creator, writer and stylist @thesaltychilli.

WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb, goose and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result. 

WHAT IS ORGANIC TURKEY?​

From late summer our slow-grown turkeys live in large, airy barns that open on to green downland fields. Every day they can follow their natural instincts in this free-range environment - pecking at the grass and bales in the fresh air, enjoying a high quality, organic feed (a mix of wheat, barley and oats).

Frequently asked questions

  • Turkey is an exceptionally lean meat, both turkey and chicken are healthy choices. A turkey breast has slightly less protein than a chicken breast, but both meats are high in protein, low in calories and fat, making them great additions to a healthy balanced diet.

  • We work with farmer Ed Walters. The Walters Family have been farming at Bower Farm, high on the Berkshire Downs for over 110 years. They have over 50 years’ experience of producing the highest quality fresh organic turkeys purely for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every day they explore their natural surroundings pecking at the grass and bales in the fresh air. The turkeys eat a natural diet, they are fed on high quality organic feed (a mix of wheat, barley and oats).

  • Organic turkey is made of several butchered cuts that come from a turkey reared in an organic certified system. There are several organic bodies in the UK who can offer this accreditation such as the Soil Association & Organic Farmers and Growers. The standards set by these bodies will affect the husbandry, birth, life, slaughter and processing of an organic beef animal. Every standard must be met and is audited at least annually to ensure this is the case.

  • There are a number of studies that suggest organic turkey is a healthier option – higher in Omega 3, Amino Acids and Healthy Fats. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic turkey is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic turkey to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional turkeys having a detrimental effect on our health. We work with farmer Ed Walters - the Walters Family have been farming at Bower Farm, high on the Berkshire Downs for over 110 years. They have over 50 years’ experience of producing the highest quality fresh organic turkeys purely for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Like us, they are passionate about the welfare of their animals. Ed carefully rears slow growing traditional Bronze turkeys for us, an old-fashioned breed that provides a bird with fantastic flavour and even coverage of meat. The flavour of the bird is made even better by slow growth to natural maturity.
