Here at Orchards we take great pleasure in making your Christmas special….

Turkeys and Geese

We source our geese and turkeys from 2 local farms where they are properly raised and are raised in fabulous surroundings ensuring the high quality birds we expect.

We offer either the bronze birds from Freebird at Georgeham…(these are known for their more ‘gamey’ flavour and once tried, physician a variety to keep going back to!) or alternatively the Whites… a fabulous traditional turkey reared near Bude . Both are offered in a range of sizes to suit all needs ranging from 4kg ( approx 9lb) up to 10kg (approx 22lb).

Other Meats

If turkey is not your thing at Christmas we can also supply Creedy Freerange Chickens, a selection of great roasting joints from the Muddiford Butcher, or for the vegetarian there are some great Xmas Nut Roasts.

Plus we also offer moist delectable gammons on or off the bone, ready to cook from the Cornish Farmhouse Bacon Company, or if you fancy it can even be cooked for you!!


Please note we do not usually ship Christmas Food orders.

When ordering these you will see it is classified as collection only and at the point of ordering we will charge only a deposit of £15 to secure your order. The balance will be due on collection.

Our Christmas and Gift Hampers can be posted.

Turkey Sizes

We do our absolute best to complete every order as close as possible to required weights but, due to the nature of farming we cannot ensure the turkeys will conveniently grow to our actual order sizes So please be aware that that there may be slight variation from your ordered weight but it will be within a tolerance of 1.5kg either way. The same applies to other meat orders though it is less likely that there will be a difference as they are cut to order.

Other products

If you wish us to reserve other items such as individual cheeses,cream, Christmas pudding, mince pies or fresh breads for the holiday then once you have ordered your main items click on contact us and send us an email of outlining the additional items or if you wish, bespoke vegetable orders.
