  • to market, to market

    Well it wasn't a market really, it was the North West Food Lovers Festival at Manchester's Event City last weekend.

    The farm had a stand there and we met a lot of lovely people, talking about our free range KellyBronze turkeys and what makes them so special, offering tastings of the meat we were cooking on the stand, selling hot turkey rolls and even taking some orders for Christmas. It was also a lot of fun spending some time with so many other independent producers of individual foods.

    One lucky visitor, Mr Mark Slater from Blackburn, won our draw and will be collecting his prize (a 5kg turkey) from the farm during our Sales Days.

    Apparently attendance at the show was down on previous years following a move from its old venue at Tatton Park. However for those visitors that did go to Event City I'm sure they must have had an excellent experience. Certainly we had a tremendously positive reaction from the people we talked to.

    The really satisfying part for us was when people tried our turkey for the first time. So many were amazed at the difference between what we were offering and what they had eaten previously. People were having a taste and then going to get their partners or families so that they could try it too. Word of mouth was working as well with people coming to the stand having been told about the eating quality of our KellyBronze turkey.

    For us, it was very rewarding and simply a delightful experience.
