What will you be eating this Christmas Day? In Ireland, research suggests most families will be sitting down to roast turkey with all the trimmings – stuffing, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, parsnips, cranberry and bread sauces among them. Since the 20th century, turkey has overtaken goose as the bird of choice in Ireland! Meanwhile, at  East Ferry Free Range poultry farm in Midleton Co Cork, the turkeys have been fattening slowly,wandering and pecking and enjoying life in the fresh country air. That means you get a fabulously flavoursome bird to grace your festive table. Free range turkeys take longer to reach maturity. As a result, they have succulent flesh with intense flavour – and produce gorgeous juices to make the gravy. The Fitzsimmons family have years of experience in rearing turkeys for Christmas – so you can be sure you are getting the Creme de la Creme when you buy one. Order yours asap direct from the farm in Midleton, to be delivered anywhere in Ireland.
