Christmas Poultry 2015

November 24th, 2015

2015 Prices Christmas Poultry Prices

Whether you’re looking for a traditional turkey, cockerel, goose, duck, or a three bird roast this year, Smiths Farm Shop have got the best quality poultry to make this Christmas extra special!

Our turkeys come from a family run farm in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside where a mixture of white turkeys and the more traditional bronze birds are reared. They are fed on home grown grain, rich in wheat and oats giving them their unique flavour that customers love. All birds are plucked by hand, these days most turkeys are wet plucked by a machine, which is quicker but it takes off a top layer of the skin that holds in the flavour which gives the turkey a crispy finish when cooked. The turkey is then hung in a chilled environment for up to two weeks giving the meat its wonderful texture and full, succulent, traditional flavour.

To order your Christmas bird, please come and visit our Chapel Brampton branch and place your order with a friendly member of staff.

Do you support your local dairy farmer?

August 27th, 2015

Did you know every day a dairy farmer is forced out of business?

Our milk comes from only 8 miles away, from Newlands Farm Dairy.

Unlike other dairies, this milk is produced, processed, bottled and distributed all by the farm itself.

Newlands Dairy Farm

Newlands Dairy Farm

                             This small scale local dairy has a milking herd of only 150 cows, which graze on grass on open fields in the summer, and stay in warm straw filled barns in the winter.

Unlike other dairy farms, this dairy farm not only milks the cows on site, but also processes, bottles and distributes the milk all by itself!
