Wonnacott Farm - Devon Organic Produce
Our farm is small and traditional, run by our family and tucked away in the Devon countryside. We are best known for our traditional Norfolk Black Christmas free-range organic turkeys, but we also produce delicious organic beef from our small herd of South Devons and our own organic lamb from our flock of Charollais and Roussin sheep.

Our own organic knitting wool is now available and is an exciting new project for us. Everything on our farm is produced to Soil Association organic standards. Indeed, we are passionate about producing healthy food in a way that is as sustainable as possible. We aim to reduce food miles and to be as self-sufficient as we can. So this inspires us to grow organic oats, barley, wheat and peas that are enjoyed by our animals.

If you would like to know more about what we do, please write, phone or email, wed love to hear from you.

Organic Turkeys - Christmas Sales 2010

About our turkeys.
We first started keeping turkeys on our Devon farm nine years ago because we wanted to be sure of a good turkey for our own family Christmas dinner! Since then we have been fortunate to enjoy the encouragement and support of loyal customers and this has persuaded us to develop the enterprise little by little each year.

We now keep our own breeding flock of Norfolk Black turkeys. They are a traditional slow-growing breed that is renowned for quality. We are proud to be one of the very few registered organic producers in the UK to be breeding and hatching our own Christmas turkeys.

We have 6 stags (male turkeys) and about 30 breeding hens. Each stag keeps company with his own group of hens in a large grassy pen of their own. The first eggs are usually laid in March and (with the help of the incubator) we expect the first turkeys to hatch at the end of April. That is always when the hard work begins and hopefully you will see the result at Christmas!

Our turkeys enjoy our own home grown organic cereals and recently we have successfully grown a mixture of peas and wheat - particularly for the turkeys. As well as this, they love to go foraging for themselves.. Acorns, stinging nettles, docks, windfall apples and even blackberries would all be among their favourites!

Our turkeys have a pretty good life - they fly, they perch and they love to come out in the mornings. They live free-range in our orchard and surrounding fields and are painstakingly put to bed each night - unlike chickens, turkeys dont take themselves indoors to roost!

In December our turkeys dont have the stress of travelling anywhere else. They are killed and plucked entirely by hand here on our farm.

At Christmas.
We aim to provide you with a delicious, traditional, organic turkey with very few food miles. Our turkeys are oven ready and can be collected from our farm or sent by mail order to arrive in time for Christmas.
We do our best to provide a turkey to suit the size of your gathering.
Weights are between 4 -10kgs (9 -22lbs) and sometimes a large turkey offers the best value as we only charge for a maximum of 10kgs (22lbs).
All you need to do is order in good time!

To order your turkey.
Please email: rosieyells@lineone.net
Or phone: 01837 871238

Then we can discuss the size and price of your turkey. You can tell us what size turkey you would like or alternatively you can tell us how many people you are cooking for and we can suggest a weight. You can tell us if you would like to collect your turkey from our farm or whether you would like us to arrange mail order delivery.

We look forward to receiving your order.
