    The best turkey we’ve ever had. Follow the simple cooking instructions for the crispiest skin, succulent meat and fantastic gravy with no fuss.

    This surely is the best turkey we have ever had! Even though we have been preparing turkey for Christmas only in the last few years I have always used high welfare meat and mostly local produce. This turkey was above my expectations and from the reviews I can say that I am not the only one. And the cranberry sauce – amazing!! Tip: for even crispier skin put herbed butter (salt, pinch rosemary, pepper and a few dried cranberries) under the skin.

    This is the third year we have had a Barra Bronze turkey, and we wouldn’t dream of getting our turkey elsewhere. Succulent and full of flavour – and really easy to cook, with the pop up thermometer and cooking instructions included. I would thoroughly recommend Barra Bronzes to anyone who wants an exceptional Christmas bird.

    Second year for us with the Barra bronze- excellent again. Lovely and moist and very tasty the way they should but very seldom do taste!

    Let’s get two negative thoughts out of the way. Firstly, roasting ‘breast down’ caused the skin to stick to the bottom of tray and unfortunately, when turned over, left little on the breast itself. Sadly this ruined the presentation of the bird. Secondly we inserted the temperature probe, exactly as described, but it never ‘popped up’. Before we realised the temperature (using a digi pen) had risen to 74 degrees. Thank heavens we checked!!!
    That said …… what a wonderful delicious turkey. Not just in flavour but texture and aroma when roasting/carving. Carving was a pleasure.None of us believed that turkey could be so flavoursome and succulent. Not only when hot but also when cold. I am not very good at describing flavours, the best way I can describe this Barra turkey is that it had a slight game like flavour and a little like pork …………………. only a million times better!!!
    The bottom line is that we will NOT hesitate to have another Barra turkey next year. One sad point is that they are only available once a year. Perhaps that is part of the delight in anticipation of Christmas dinner 2019. Thank you to everyone for your dedication in providing such a splendid environment for the birds and of course such a delicious experience. Joyce and Robert

    First time we have had one and after many years of trying different brands this was by far the best . Easy to cook and amazing flavour. The animal welfare element was an important issues for us it was good to see how these birds are cared for. Will purchase again and recommend to friends.

    We have been your customers ever since you first appeared at Inverurie farmers market, and for all those years yours have been unquestionably the finest turkeys we have ever eaten. They never disappoint and simply can’t be compared with the usual supermarket offerings. For once, all the superlatives are justified. The thermometer, the instructions and the herbal garnish are also much appreciated

    This is the third year in a row that we’ve ordered a Barra Bronze turkey. They are always an outstanding bird that beats anything on offer anywhere else, and yet somehow this year’s turkey managed to be even better than ever! The meat was moist with an unbelievable depth of flavour, and the gravy it produced was out of this world! Well done once again!

    A beautifully presented Turkey complete with cooking instructions and pop up thermometer. Cooked brest side down as instructed for the first part of the cooking.

    Our Barra Bronze was every bit as memorable as the Bresse capon we brought back from France last year. Two main ways to tell – 1) I never, ever eat turkey skin, but yours was just too delicious to resist, ‘specially since there were still some yummy globs of fat clinging on – and 2) I ate my thigh completely au naturel – no sauce, either bread or devil-berry, and no gravy – just the wonderfully moist meat, eaten as one would a well-aged steak. Perfection – and Yes, I’ll be back next year.

    After years of buying Heston’s turkey crown I decided to go back to a traditional turkey, I research the type of turkey I was looking for and boy I was delighted when I came across BARRA BRONZE it is truly the best turkey my family and I have tasted, it reminded me of my mum and dad cooking after picking up there turkey from the local village farm , a local fresh hung turkey.

    will definitely be purchasing again next year

    PS: Argument rages once again this year – which end is the tip of the breastbone for the great little thermometer – this one? Or that one? Suggestion: a little diagrammatic on next year’s instruction leaflet?

The time, effort and care you put into raising these turkeys clearly shows in the final product, and we are just disappointed we can only get them for Christmas.

    We really enjoyed our turkey from you. It was my first Christmas hosting and cooking myself, it was such a relief to have such a high quality bird that really needed no attention. – even the gravy was dead easy – the juices were super flavourful. Best gravy I have ever made/had!! – the skin was also like no other, Only can compare to the best duck skin I have ever had with the perfect layer of crispness and fatty underneath. My family who had pretty much turned their back on turkeys in favour of hams, lamb legs and beef now want one of yours for easter and thanksgiving and xmas!!
