- ABOUT US -
Phil Baxter, our founder, was a schoolteacher in Halstead, Kent with a passion for being entirely self-sufficient.
In 1976 whilst pursuing the “good life” he decided to rear a turkey for his Christmas dinner. He purchased three eggs which he lovingly nurtured in his bedroom! Having proved a great success, in 1977 he reared a further 20 birds for the enjoyment of family and friends.
1978 saw the birth of Cottage Farm Turkeys which has since become a highly successful business, dealing in Day Old chicks through to Growers which Phil now supplies to farmers countrywide in addition to rearing our own turkeys for sale exclusively through our Butchery at Polhill Garden Centre.
