How to choose your turkey

From whole birds to easy-carve crowns, find the perfect centrepiece for your festive feast with our turkey guide. Whichever you choose, we can trace all our British birds back to the farm they came from

Whole turkeys

If you're a stickler for tradition, a golden-skinned, whole bird makes a magnificent centrepiece to your Christmas dinner. If you're feeding a crowd, and you like a choice of different cuts, from darker leg meat to tender breast, it’s the perfect choice. You'lll most likely have plenty of leftovers, and buying a bird on the bone means you can make a batch of stock: perfect for a bowl of restorative turkey broth.

Turkey crowns

A boneless crown is the ultimate fuss-free choice: it has a shorter cooking time, is easy to carve, and includes plenty of white breast meat (in other words, turkey sandwich heaven!). A crown is simply a joint of white breast meat on the bone, with the wings and legs removed. Its smaller size is handy if you're worried about oven space on the big day. Our birds come ready to cook in a foil tray, and because they're slow-grown, the meat stays wonderfully juicy and succulent.

Brilliant British birds

Our free-range Pembrokeshire Bronze turkeys are reared exclusively for us by Justin Scale – the fifth generation of his family to farm his 400-acre site in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. It’s the perfect spot for the birds to forage freely on land covered with clover, herbs and wildflowers. Lots of factors combine to ensure Justin’s Pembrokeshire Bronze turkeys are the very best. A temperate climate and lush, free-draining pastures make the farm an ideal environment for the birds. It provides them with a rich diet of cereal, clover and herbs that gives their meat unrivalled flavour. Justin’s Pembrokeshire Bronze turkeys are slowly grown in line with strict M&S welfare standards, to reach full maturity – adding to their superb depth of flavour and exceptional succulence.
