Best wishes and Happy New year,

Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say we were very pleased with the turkey this Christmas, a very tasty bird, full of flavour and was very tender! Sure we’ll be ordering again later this year for Xmas 2022!

Ps the chippolata sausages were fab too

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how great the turkey you provided was. A truly wonderful flavour and texture especially compared to recent shop bought birds. (Although i like to think my BBQ’ing it helped!) At just over 10kg fed all the family and still gave us a suitable sandwich run!

Wishing you a prosperous New Year.



Just to say what an absolutely delicious turkey, again! All guests thought flavour amazing.

Hi Murray, happy new year. Just wanted to let you know that both the ham and turkey were delicious. Thanks. Liz

I have now been buying my Christmas turkey from Butlerfarms for over five years and have never been disappointed in any aspect. The birds have been moist with good flavour and enjoyed just as much cold on Boxing Day. A Butlerfarms turkey is an integral part of the Warburton Christmas.


Dear Murray,

A slightly belated note, but just to record how delicious our Christmas turkey was! Thank you very much.


Don Henderson

Hi Murray,

I collected my pre-ordered turkey from you on Christmas Eve, and was very pleased to find it all ready for collection. I was impressed with your well organised distribution team! The turkey was delicious and moist and I will definitely buy one again.

Thanks, Pauline Holohan

We get our every year from Murray and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else – delicious, local and good value. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without it.

We have had a Turkey crown from Butler Farms at Xmas on several occasions: when it comes to getting it absolutely right on what is a very big catering day, the quality of the bird (and the chefmanship!) has always attracted praise.


Hi Murray

I wanted to let you know that the gammon we had from you was I think the best gammon we have ever had. I soaked it for a few hours and then cooked it very slowly. It was extremely tender, had loads of flavour and carved beautifully. We had a turkey from you the year before but were away on Christmas day this year but I’d be happy to recommend both your turkeys and gammon to anyone. I only wish you were retailing pork though the year as that too was superb.



Hi Murray,

I had a wonderful Christmas. Turkey and I travelled North to Cheshire after I picked him up. We sat down 11 (well 101/2 Isla is only 2), 4 generations, to a proper family Christmas dinner. We even had indoor fireworks!

We all agreed it was one of the tastiest, most succulent turkeys we had ever had.

Everyone got a some to take home too and the carcass made terrific soup.

I always recommend your turkeys and meat as I have never had anything that wasn’t delicious.

Dear Murray,

We have ordered turkeys from Butler Farms for several years now and have never been disappointed. The quality is excellent: we love the turkey hot on Christmas day and cold for the next couple of days. It is always delicious. Their chipolatas are excellent too. The service is always warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Butlers Farm.

Dear Murray,

This was the first year we had a Butler Farms Norfolk Bronze. Our bird was a beauty! Perfectly sized (ergo perfectly reared) with lovely plump breast meat and a good proportion of darker meat too. I’m not sure whether you dry pluck or how long you hang the birds, but we thought the flavour was well developed, beautifully succulent when cooked and we’ll be back for more this coming Christmas.
One minor niggle was with the trussing. I like to be able to put bay leaves and butter under the skin and stuff the parson’s nose. The trussing was very efficient but didn’t allow for what I wanted to do as there wasn’t any spare string to re-tie. I managed to put the stuffing in anyway and didn’t bother with the butter and bay leaves and it was just fine. On the plus side, the good trussing contributed to how well the bird cooked. I’d love to attend a trussing workshop so I could do my own next year, and perhaps you couldChristmas-dinner offer extra butcher’s string.
The bacon was sublime but I was looking for a slightly different flavour from the chipolatas – maybe more salt, I’m not sure, couldn’t put my finger on it, they were nice, but maybe they were too good quality and actually needed a little more fat?!
We collected our turkey on 23rd and we cut it fine to collect and make an emergency doctor’s appt for our son so we were hugely impressed at the level of organisation and flow in dealing with the queue. An atmosphere of focus and calm prevailed and it was an absolute pleasure to experience.
Many thanks,
Angie and Tony Greenham

Dear Murray,
Happy New Year!! We feel we are regular customers now and whoever we have coming to stay at Christmas, always comments on how beautiful the turkey is! This year it was my mum and dad who thought it was “some of the nicest turkey they had ever tasted, really succulent and tasty!” They are served by an excellent butcher, so praise from them is praise indeed! It’s just a shame there wasn’t more left over! We will have to get a bigger one next year, oh and more delicious sausages too!!
Hope you have a good year
Kate Keena and family


We have bought our Christmas turkey here for several years now and they are always superb and succulent. Highly recommended and we will be placing our order again this Christmas.

Happy New Year to you all.

Cathy Weller

We have been buying our Xmas Turkey’s and all the trimmings from Butlers Farm for the past three years. Every year we think this is the best, most succulent bird we have had, but each year they just keep getting better. We had a smaller one (6Kg for the four of us!) this year, and it was as delicious as ones twice the size. We are Butler Brand Lovers!

Hope to see you soon – best of luck with the weather for 2013!

Clare Jones

Dear Murray,

This is the second year I have ordered a turkey from Butler Farms. The turkey was moist and succulent. I cooked it just in it’s own juices just stuffed with the sausage meat from the farm too. It was all delicious hot and then we ate the rest cold with pickles. I then made stock with the bones and they produced a clear, scented jelly which I then made into soup. As I am a keen cook who loves cooking with the best ingredients, I will have no hesitation in ordering another turkey, bacon, sausages and sausage meat again next year.

Dear Murray,
No turkey this year – but the goose was superb – thank you.
Vaughan Mitchell

Yes it was yummy. The turkey was just perfect…he must have had a very happy life. The soup is delicious so he will continue to give us pleasure right through the winter. Thanks to you for all the hard work you put in for us.
Best wishes,

Dear Murray,

This was my first purchase from butler farms and the whole experience was a pleasure. Prompt replies to emails and a very friendly efficient service when I collected the bird on Christmas Eve. The turkey itself was delicious and I’m happy to support our local farms rather than mass produced supermarkets. Many thanks.

Dear Murray,

Just to say a big thank you for the huge free range turkey we ordered from you for Christmas this year. It was the best we have eaten – very succulent & received lots of compliments from our 14 guests. Despite its size 21lbs, it was eaten within 3 days so it must have been good. Definitely going to order another next year.

Best wishes for the NY
