.            Christmas Turkeys for 2020


Welcome to Sussex Free Range Turkeys

This will be our 35th year rearing our unique turkeys at our farm for Christmas.
Thank you to all our regular customers for your support over many of those years and your encouragement to continue producing them.

Thank you

To reserve and order your Christmas Turkey  pay a deposit using the pay button below or go to our shop, if you have pre order questions, email me at 
or call or text me on 07703 182 971 The deposit secures the order. 

The turkeys are all bronze hens and should reach weights of about 7-8Kg (about 15.5 lbs – 17.5lbs).  

They are £11.56 per Kg (£5.25 per lb) oven ready.  We don’t sell them by their deadweight.*
So a 7Kg bird will cost £80.92 and an 8Kg bird will cost £92.48.

We are SW of Horsham, just off the A264 at the top of a hill.  Behind the old Itchingfield Primary School (now all boarded up) which is on a 90 degree bend.  Alongside the school is a farm track.  There is a sign saying “Warning” This is not a Sat Nav route.”  Go along the track for about 200 yards and there is a turning on the left with a big wooden building.  Bear left and you will find yourself in a farmyard with us in a big green farm building, opposite Auto Team Mechanics Reception.  The post code is RH13 0NU.  Any problems, call me on 07703 182 971.  Note:   Your Sat Nave may want to take you through the Muntham Estate, which is wrong.  If this is the case, try using the post code RH13 0NX.


Amount per person:

Hens are smaller than Stags, and in the past we have produced some turkeys that have reached over 30lbs in weight.  Great for people with huge ovens, but for most people that isn’t the case.  So, this year we have only reared hens which should reach an average weight of about 15lbs – some bigger, some smaller.

The rule of thumb for buying a whole turkey, approx  1 lb (500g) per person plus a bit.

This should be enough to cover dinner and allow for leftovers to snack on throughout the evening.   Whether or not you would like leftovers also determines the weight of the bird which is why we would recommend you buy one large enough so that you have some leftover for turkey sandwiches, pies and curries.  Cooked turkey freezes really well too.  Our turkeys are great value compared to other meats and should be between 6.5Kg and 8.5Kg.

If you are used to ordering in Ibs and are unsure what size you need to order, please take a look at the table below. These weights are all for oven ready turkeys with giblets.

KGs Lbs
6.5 – 6.99 14.30 – 15.39
7 – 7.49 15.40 – 16.39
7.5 – 7.99 16.40 – 17.59
8 – 8.49 17.60 – 18.69
8.5 – 8.99 18.70 – 19.79


We cannot guarantee exact weights in advance but will endeavour to find a bird to match your order as close as we can.

* deadweight includes the head, feet and innards which have all been discarded.  Old fashioned Butchers shops used to sell the birds by their deadweight.
