We are a family run farm based in Barkby, Leicestershire, who specalise in producing high quality Turkeys and Cockerels ready for Christmas.
Kirks Turkeys and Cockerels are produced ready for the Christmas trade and are sold direct from the farm or through high quality butchers and farm shops in Leicester, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire.
Our farm reared Free Range and Traditional Bronze and White Turkeys can be ordered as whole birds or the increasingly popular Turkey Crowns. Our turkeys are with us for at least 22 weeks, which means they are twice the age of fast growing commercial turkey when they have reached full maturity. Our Turkeys are avaliable to order in sizes from 4.5kg (10lbs) to 13.6kg (30lbs).
Our farm reared Free Range and Traditional Cockerels make the perfect alternative to a Christmas turkey. Larger than chickens cockerels are allowed more time to grow and mature developing a succulent meat full of flavour to feed your family and guests. Our Cockerels are avaliable to order in sizes from 3.6kg (8lbs) to 6.3kg (14lbs).
From when Kirks Turkeys and Cockerels arrive at Dairy Farm to Christmas Eve the whole family help with different aspects of the rearing process.
We believe that British produce is the best in the world and that by buying British we are all contributing to maintaining the rich fabric of the countryside. If you buy a local turkey or cockerel, not only will you have a delicious centrepiece for your meal to enjoy with your family but you are supporting the local economy and environment too.
Our customers come back year after year and that speaks volumes to us. They are proud to support us as a local family run farm knowing our Turkeys and Cockerels have been reared to the highest welfare standards.
2020 was a challenging year for everybody and the need for local fresh produce had never been greater! We sold out by the start of December and expect this year to be just as busy.
You can be assured that ordering direct from the farm will guarantee you a farm fresh bird without the hustle and bustle of the supermarkets!
