Norfolk Blacks, Bourbon Reds ..


Norfolk Blacks, Bourbon Reds ..

An email of appreciation from happy customers. Positive feedback is ALWAYS well received!. Thanks Carol, thanks Clare, thanks Janet, thanks Tom. Message Body: Thank you SO much for the absolutely delicious turkey that you provided for our Christmas lunch. It actually tasted of TURKEY! In addition it was wonderfully moist and beautifully cleaned and prepared. We are also happy to think that the bird had a reasonable life before we ate it! Many thanks and a Happy New Year to you. Carol Leatt and another .. Message Body: Dear Debbie and Simon, This year for Christmas we had one of your Norfolk Black Turkeys and it was so delicious I felt I must write and tell you how much we enjoyed it. Not only did it carve beautifully, but the meat was incredibly tender, succulent and flavoursome – unlike any other turkey I’ve ever tasted! Is it too early to put in an order for next year? Best wishes for 2014. Clare (Lostwithiel) .. and ANOTHER .. Message Body: Hi Debbie, The turkey was just wonderful! Many many thanks for a delicious meal, and for arranging for Jane to deliver to us in Truro. Such an easy transaction. Can’t wait for next Christmas! Best Wishes and Happy New Year, Janet and Marcus Croome AND ANOTHER! Message Body: Hi there, Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your turkey this christmas. I was amazed how much meat there was from a bird that didn’t look that big. It carved really deeply and the brown meat was the consistency of goose meat but leaner and less rich. We fed twelve on christmas day and went on to have numerous sandwiches, soup and even a curry – all from a 12lb bird! Every christmas we have the same dilemma: turkey or goose? Now we’ve found the perfect compromise…. Thank you Tom Owen (Milltown)

Two small turbines, NOT a wind farm


Two small turbines, NOT a wind farm

Bemused to see us mentioned in the front page article of today’s Western Morning News alongside references to REG windpower, windfarms, and proposed turbines 284ft tall. Thankfully we live in a democracy where we can all have our say, and the few in our community, that are seemingly threatened by any change, have, in this case, been overruled. Our planning approval is for two small, low impact turbines, on 15m masts, that will help sustain a local business for the future. We believe they will constitute less visual impact than the 40kw equivalent in solar panels, with the benefit that we will still be able to farm the land beneath the turbines, avoiding the need to dispose of toxic waste at the end of their life (unlike PV cells). They are not an enduring feature of our landscape – they are temporary; simply a reflection of today’s technological solution to an energy crisis that affects us all and our natural environment.
