What’ the difference between a “normal” turkey and a Charlesfort Turkey ?
A Charlesfort Turkey is a slow rearing turkey and “normal” turkeys are not,
this means a Charlesfort turkey has more time to grow at a steady pace , at least 4 weeks more than a normal turkey.This allows the bird to mature more naturally, it is not rushed in anyway to hit a certain weight, and this extra length in time is what gives a more quality finish and better flavour to the end product.
Included in our Hogans Farm Charlesfort™ Turkey Selection is a range of White and Bronze turkeys.
The white turkeys are known as The Charlesfot White™ and are reared in small batches in specialised temperature controlled barns and the Bronze turkeys are known as ‘The Traditional Free Range Woodland Bronze ™ Turkey better known as our Woodland Bronze™ the name given by where they are reared , wild and free out in our woodland. These turkeys can be purchased direct from our Farm Shop , online and certain butcher stockist around the country.
All of which are under the Love Irish Symbol and reared by us on our farms.
