    Delicious bird, and every bit as good as one with no slight marks. It would have been a shame to waste such high quality meat. Barra Bronzes also kindly arranged to have our turkey shipped out early as we are in a remote location, to ensure it arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. Thank you!

    Excellent value for money and top quality. Very happy with this purchase

    Second year for us, but first with a “sustainable bird”. Beautiful roast, moist and full of flavour. Look forward to next year’s! Well done Craig and family – all the best for 2022.

  4. Tom Parrish (verified owner)

    First time ordering, and the bird was absolutely delicious! The bird had a few visible marks, but it would have been a crying shame if that turkey had been thrown away because of them.

    Great packaging, arrived in plenty of time. All round, excellent!

  5. Susan Douglas-Scott (verified owner)

    Utterly delicious, moist, full of flavour and easy to roast. We also loved that it was a happily reared and processed bird. Thanks Craig and Family. All the best for 2022!

    As always a great succulent turkey – you just can’t beat a Barra bronze for Christmas

  7. Stuart Wilson (verified owner)

    We ordered a large turkey and a turkey crown and both arrived timeously in perfect condition, as they have for the last 3 years now, despite our remote location (isle of Skye). As lockdown ended with just the 2 of us instead of 7 – 9 we have had to freeze the birds for a family reunion in 2021 when covid19 and lockdown are just words we used to use. Previous years have been tasty birds which brings us back to Bara bronze year after year.

  8. Maureen Mathieson (verified owner)

    Craig, you so much for nurturing our Turkey through the year and giving it a happy life. All good things come to an end and as usual it was absolutely delicious on our table. Worth every penny.

  9. Jackie Campbell (verified owner)

    The turkey looked perfect to us and was voted by the family (who are not big fans of turkey) as by far the best they have tasted. It is now on the menu for next Christmas (as long as it comes from Barra Bronzes)! The delivery service gets full marks too!

  10. Natasha C Robinson (verified owner)

    Bigger than ordered so great value and perfectly formed. Absolutely delicious. Thanks

  11. Susan Edwards (verified owner)

    Perfect as usual, succulent, tasty and worth every penny

  12. Liam (verified owner)

    First time buying a Barra Bronze and it didn’t disappoint
    Turkey arrived on time and packaged extremely well. Beautiful flavour and the best turkey we’ve ever tasted. Will be back again next year.

  13. Lynn (verified owner)

    Delicious as usual. Had to freeze half as only two of us not eight as anticipated when ordering, so still have that to look forward to later in the year.
    Would certainly buy a sustainable bird again. All the best for 2021.

  14. Michael Wilson (verified owner)

    Wasn’t sure about it getting to me on the Isle of Lewis on time but no problems there. Boned and rolled it on delivery. Cooked it on Christmas Day. One of the tastiest turkeys I’ve eaten. Thanks.

  15. Frances Jones (verified owner)

    Usual high standard. Butter/lemon slices/thyme under the skin – moist and succulent. A delicious meal. Many thanks.

  16. Don McInnes (verified owner)

    Definitely the best turkey I have ever bought. It arrived in plenty of time and was very well packed. It cooked well and the flavour was amazing. So pleased and definitely worth the money

  17. Phil Collins (verified owner)

    Delivered on time, packaged perfectly.
    So easy to cook, with the help of the pop up thermometer
    The most delicious turkey we’ve ever tasted and will definitely be buying again next year.
    Thank you

  18. Richard Aspden (verified owner)

    Delicious! Succulent and tasty it went down a storm and is still going strong after two big meals. plenty left for turkey and ham pie!

  19. Andy Rorks (verified owner)

    Brilliant!!! The Turkey arrived on time and I followed the cooking instructions which made it all very simple.
    The Turkey was truly magnificent and the best tasting that I have ever had.
    I will without doubt be ordering one next year excellent product and service.
    Thanks for making our Christmas dinner so special.

  20. Peter Fraser

    Almost easier than usual to pick up in drive through mode. Quality exceptional. Our only problem was the cancellation of family leaving 2 of us to eat 9.9kg. Boned and stuffed the bird and cooked a third of it on Xmas. Delicious and well stocked freezer. Also bought legs for future stock.

  21. Jenny Mackintosh-May (verified owner)

    Very impressed with this turkey. I don’t actually eat meat any more (for welfare reasons mainly, but also quality, since we gave up farming ourselves) but as this was a high welfare bird I tasted a small piece. The rest of the family thoroughly enjoyed it, and I was really pleased with how easy it was to cook. I was amazed at the amount of meat off the legs, top of wings and back – you can see that these birds have led an active life.
    I did find the little blemish that made this a “sustainable” turkey, and it really wasn’t much at all.
    Yes, high welfare free range poultry is expensive, compared to frozen supermarket birds, but there’s a reason for that – these are far superior!

  22. Una Angus (verified owner)

    Best turkey we’ve ever had – really made our Christmas (which was effectively cancelled) super special

  23. Russ Lavington (verified owner)

    This is the best turkey we have ever had
    Succulent and so tasty it really made our dinner very special
    Looking forward to next year already

  24. Dave (verified owner)

    An excellent turkey! Great flavour and no apparent downside to buying a sustainable bird. Up there with the best turkeys.
    The packaging was excellent, with the bird still very chilled three days after delivery; Turkey in inner cardboard box with giblets, ineerbox inan insulated bubble wrap bag with some frozen ice packs and the whole lot then in an outer cardboard box. Very impressive altogether. Thank you.

  25. William Addison

    Excellent Flavour and the meat was lovely and moist ! Loads of meat left over to put into a nice turkey curry and for snacks on Boxing Day! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meat well worth the extra for the quality!

  26. Natalie Whitelaw

    Stunning quality turkey – really happy with our choice for christmas dinner this year. Great flavour and looking forward to our turkey pie with the leftover!

  27. Carol mcinnes (verified owner)

    Hello Craig and family
    The turkey arrived as described . We cooked the turkey in our aga as per your instructions , the instructions are easy to follow. Cooking the turkey on its breast is not new to us as that is how we would normally cook it. The turkey was moist and delicious ,the leg meat was equally fantastic. We would certainly buy from Barra bronze again. Many thanks for taking the time to care for your free range turkeys .

  28. Laura Jackson (verified owner)

    Collection was swift and simple. I was really pleased that the only plastic was the bag containing the giblets. The turkey was delicious and we will definitely be buying again. Thank you.

  29. Stuart Matthews (verified owner)

    First time I have purchased a turkey from Barra and having had the most delicious Christmas dinner would definitely use again. Thank you for great tasting turkey , beautifully packed with instructions

  30. Helen Stevenson (verified owner)

    Returning customer as we’ve found these turkeys to be extremely tasty, instructions are very helpful and the pop out thermometer a useful piece, the gravy is delicious and adds that finishing touch to a spectacular special Xmas dinner! Customer service and packaging is excellent.

  31. Ben Wightman

    Honestly the best turkey we’ve ever had. The flavour was stunning, the juices made amazing gravy and the fat was brilliant on the roast potatoes. We even took the crisp skin off and had it salted for a pre-dinner snack.

    The ratio of bone to flesh was staggering; I’ve never seem so much meat come off a carcass that small!

    Couldn’t recommend more highly – this family know their stuff and do a wonderful job.

  32. Mike (verified owner)

    Amazing bird. Cooked as per the instructions and it turned out a dream. I’ve cooked some good birds over the years but this was the easiest. Beautifully tender carved well. We had a 6-7kg bird fed 7 good eaters and we have enough for another meal. The dogs had the wings and some other bits so all very happy. Wouldn’t hesitate to order again.

  33. Sheila Sanderson (verified owner)

    Wonderful flavour. I am a returning customer. The dark meat is as good as duck and the breast flavourful and juicy. This year I boned, stuffed and rolled the breast and sous vide and boned the legs finishing them with a honey and mustard glaze in the oven. Definitely the way to go to get both parts cooked perfectly.
