A TASTY, lo­cally-pro­duced turkey for your Christ­mas meal is just a click away, thanks to the Na­tional Farm­ers’ Union. The NFU’s web­site -­ - sign­posts peo­ple to more than 250 spe­cial­ist turkey pro­duc­ers, to help con­sumers save food miles and en­joy the very best birds avail­able from their near­est farm. This on­line re­source also boasts recipes, nu­tri­tional in­for­ma­tion, funky turkey ‘gob­ble gob­ble’ ring­tones to down­load and a sea­sonal song. There is also a chance to win one of five farm-fresh bronze tur­keys. NFU South East poul­try ad­viser James Mul­leneux said: “More and more peo­ple are recog­nis­ing the im­por­tance of wel­fare, qual­ity and taste when choos­ing their Christ­mas turkey. “So if you are a con­sci­en­tious con­sumer, you should log on to­ now, or­der a lo­cal bird from your near­est farmer and be­gin the count­down to Christ­mas. Buy­ing from a lo­cal turkey pro­ducer means that you can find out ex­actly how the bird has been reared and know that you are get­ting a gourmet prod­uct that will only travel a few miles to your fes­tive ta­ble.”
