Today is the NFU’s Buy my Turkey Day, and turkey producers across the country are taking to social media to show off their farm fresh turkeys and urge the public to consider buying from their local producer, using the NFU’s online Turkey Finder.
NFU turkey group chair Jonathan Smith said: “Even though it’s only November, turkey producers across England and Wales have been busy rearing and caring for their birds and preparing for the festive season.
“Turkey is a fantastic choice for your Christmas dinner, providing a delicious and nutritious meal to share with the whole family. By buying a British turkey directly from the farm where it has been produced, you will be backing British farming, helping a local business, and providing a boost for the rural economy.
“We know that everyone is being affected by the cost of living crisis, which is why we are encouraging shoppers to buy a whole bird as it represents the best value for money.”
