The festive period is a definite time to celebrate British farming – tasty seasonal vegetables, the best British meat and locally grown Christmas trees and plants. The Back British Farming campaign is supporting your local farmers at this important time of year by showcasing what farmers across Britain will be delivering this Christmas.
Farmers took to social media showcase the best of British turkeys! Messages, photos and videos were posted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #BuyMyTurkey to remind the public to start thinking about the centrepiece of the Christmas dinner table – a traditional British farm fresh turkey. The public were urged to support British farmers, and to choose a bird that has been reared locally.
Radio DJ Chris Moyles lent his support to #BuyMyTurkey live on air on his breakfast show to over one million listeners.
NFU poultry board member and turkey farmer Mike Bailey said: “Turkey producers across the country are preparing for the busy festive period so millions of us can tuck into a traditional Christmas dinner. “Buying your turkey directly from the farm where it has been produced not only benefits a local farming business but provides you with a great tasting bird reared to the highest standards.
