A bit about where the Turkeys come from...
The Tomlinsons farm at Salwick Farm, Salwick, Preston which is only 10miles from Old Holly Farm. The family have been Turkey farming for over 20 years, and also farm dairy cows, beef, sheep and cereals.
The turkeys are reared naturally to 22 weeks, compared to a supermarkets 14weeks. We went to visit the Farm and Turkeys in November 2009 and we were very impressed with the standard of care and condition of the turkeys (they even have a "turkey hospital" where poorly turkeys are cared for until they are better!).
The key differences between white and bronze turkeys are......
- White turkeys have white feathers, white meat, and a more delicate taste. White turkeys have a broader breast than the bronze.
- Bronze turkeys have a bronze-like sheen to their plumage, the meat is a shade darker than white, has a denser texture in the fibres of the meat, and it has a subtle “gamey” taste.

David said "Being able to produce our own Milk which our customers can enjoy at home has been a dream of ours for a long time! The milk is already used in the Cafe and Playbarn to make drinks, plus it is used to make the Coolcow Ice cream on site, and the Creamy Lancashire Cheese already available in the shop.
But the idea of customers being able to enjoy our milk at home really is an exciting addition to Old Holly!!"
