Our Turkey Suppliers
John Howe Turkeys
The Howe family has been producing Christmas turkeys for the last 45 years and are very proud of what they do. Their ethos has always remained the same – to produce the very best turkey possible.
John Howe’s turkeys are slow-growing, old fashioned breeds, raised on a natural, cereal based diet, free from antibiotics and growth promotors. Both their Bronze and White birds are free range from 8 weeks of age.
All their turkeys are dry plucked, by hand, and game hung for a minimum of 10 days to ensure a delicious and succulent flavour.
John Howe Turkeys is a member of the Traditional Farm-fresh Turkey Association and all birds are produced under its strict Golden Turkey quality assurance code.
Portsdown Hill Farm
Turkeys have been traditionally reared on this Hampshire family farm for three generations.
Just a few hundred birds are treated with care and consideration, fed on a home grown ration based on cereals containing no growth promotors. The turkeys are slowly grown to maturity producing birds of exceptional quality.
First time customers often comment that the farm's was “the best turkey I have ever tasted”. Traditional Farm Fresh Turkeys (TFFT) are not mass produced and can only be purchased from a few selected family butchers.
We offer 3 freezer packs – they come in three sizes, so it's a great way of buying your meat for the week, or the month, all in one go.

YOUR FRIENDLY BUTCHER
HERE TO HELP!
We're proud to implement the methods and philosophy of a traditional Butchers shop; the meat and poultry is cut, tied and boned out on site, by our fully trained Master Butcher. If you're deliberating over a choice of cut or need any cooking tips for the meat you are buying, just ask and we would be delighted to share our knowledge with you. The beauty of coming to a shop like ours, is that you will always receive a friendly smile and the personal touch.
Our customers are busy people!! That's why we added a wide range of oven-ready meals & dishes to our repertoire. Not to be confused with a 'ready meal', these dishes are prepared on site but NOT pre-cooked, so they retain the best flavours. All products in this range are served in oven-proof containers, so as the title suggests, they really are 'oven-ready'!
PIES & SAUSAGE ROLLS
Over the years, Astles has amassed an astounding reputation for our homemade pies. With almost every pie being an 'award winner' in its class, its no wonder they're so popular. With a range of sizes, from individuals to extra large, and flavours from pure steak to chicken & ham, there is something for all tastes.
