#MerryChristmas to all.
We are sorry to say that we have already sold out of our Fresh Free Range Turkeys.
We would like to thank all those already ordered and are sorry to those who have requested a bird from us that we have already had to disappoint.
Hopefully those disappointed will come back next year? 😢🤞🦃

Set in 16 acres of the North Shropshire countryside, The Croft is a beautiful and peaceful small holding. Or it was until we moved in!
The Croft is now the home of “The Croft SY”, a local business run by Nathan and Stacey Lea. Our journey to The Croft started in school in 1996. Now, many years on and having been married since 2005, Stacey and I with our young family are driven to establish our local business to supply delicious meats that are responsibly reared with the finest feed and personal care.
In the future, The Croft SY will also have thousands of our Home Grown On The Farm Nordmann Fir Christmas trees available.
At The Croft we source traditional turkey breeds from local Shropshire hatcheries.
Our turkeys enjoy a purpose mix of Turkey feed combined with fresh pasture and fruit providing a nutritionally-balanced diet that’s locally sourced.
Our birds are cared for by dedicated onsite personnel that have over thirty years of experience.
During the day, our Free Range turkeys stroll around our pasture lands, taking in the fresh air as soon as they’re old enough, age and weather dependent, up until the latter days of their lives.
Our birds are plucked with a sensitive combination of mechanical and by hand. The initial plucking and detailed finishing of the birds are performed by hand to assure the pristine finish of our birds.
Our birds are then hung for over 7 days which is essential for their cooked quality.
Having been grown slowly, our free range mature turkeys are a joy to cook. They offer more flavor with a fantastic meat texture.
In a few years our Home Grown On The Farm Nordmann Fir Christmas trees will be available.
Families of all sizes will be welcome to come and PYO tree. A tree that has not only been locally grown, but responsibly grown using as few herbicides and pesticides as possible to protect the environment and wild life.
Your local tree will have the smallest carbon footprint possible, but also due to its local nature it will keep its needles and memorable aroma for longer.
