It’s a star of many a Christmas table, so choosing the turkey to grace your family’s table on Christmas Day can be an important decision. At this weekend’s Barnyard Christmas Gift and Food Fayre, in Oak Lane, Upchurch, you can sample the best in locally sourced free-range turkeys and order them in time for Christmas Day.
The fayre at the farm near Sittingbourne, which regularly opens its doors for Open Farm Sunday each spring, will have all your festive goodies under one roof. Taste some succulent hams, gammon and sausages, local and Continental cheese, and chutneys and crackers from the local deli.
There will also be food and gift hampers, Christmas decorations and Frenchinspired treats. The gift shop, The Giggleberry Tree, has also been refurbished. The fayre is on Saturday and Sunday, November 18 to 19, between 10am and 4pm both days. For details, visit www.thebarnyard.com or call 01634
You can have Christmas without turkey. The Tonbridge Vegan Festive Fair this weekend will have a spread of festive food, which is all vegan.

The family-friendly event will be held at the Angel Centre in Angel Lane, Tonbridge, on Saturday, November 18, between 11am and 4pm. Entry is £3, with under-16s going free.
