We attend the Anglian Turkey Association's annual show in Stoke-by-Nayland — a unique event in the turkey world where birds are still displayed in the way they were traditionally hung outside butchery shops.
There were once such events in regions around the UK — with turkeys ‘show plucked’ to leave their neck feathers intact. The ATA show is the last one surviving and continues to flourish with support from many of its 150 members, including Cottage Farm.
In 2015 Cottage Farm Achieved 5 Awards

In 2014 Cottage Farm perfomed excellently at the ATA show, winning the trophies for the best hen over 8 kg, braces of both white and bronze turkeys, oven-ready under 11kg, the butcher’s retail presentation and best in show.
