A whole free-range farmed turkey from New Zealand. Sized 3.2kg (7.05lbs) this bird is large enough to feed at least 6 heads. For your celebrations with family and friends use only the best, safest, and highest quality available. Turkey meat is known for its high protein low-fat values. If you are looking for the highest quality of free-range turkey - this is what you are looking for. Each turkey contains about 35% breast meat which is a great value for money. This turkey is not braised or has been injected with brine solution. It comes with a separate pack that contains the liver, heart, and neck for your convenience.

New Zealand free-range, and open pasture-raised white turkey - probably the first in Japan. The free-range turkeys spend their days roaming around fresh green paddocks, pecking and nibbling away as they explore the farm as nature intended. At night the turkeys are moved into the sheds to prevent exposure to harsh weather conditions and protect them from predators. It goes without saying that the birds were never treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. Compared to factory-farmed conventional turkeys, our turkeys are raised for 3 weeks longer.

The farm is called Canter Valley and is a real family-owned business run by Locky and Kathy located in North Canterbury, New Zealand. The welfare of the turkeys is a top priority and the family farm maintains the highest level of farming practices. They hold certification for free-range animal welfare practices and are certified by FREPNZ (Free Range Egg and Poultry New Zealand).

For both, roast meat and Japanese food

Translated from Japanese: If you try to buy turkey in Japan, you will end up with either pre-seasoned (also used with chemical seasonings) frozen turkey from the United States or smoked turkey that has already been seasoned. Unseasoned, organic turkey is valuable only in the United States during the Thanksgiving season. It's amazing that you can buy it all year round in Japan now.
If you put the whole turkey in the refrigerator for about a day, it will loosen enough to insert a knife, so you can remove both wings and legs, zip lock each and return them to the freezer, and split the breast meat in two. The roast is delicious, but the soup made with it is excellent, too. It has a thick and strong flavor, so it’s perfect for Japanese food and as a base for soba soup or soup stock for root vegetable soup.

Turkey is for Christmas!

Translated from Japanese: I ordered for the first time this year. Last year I had chicken, but this year I wanted to try roasted turkey. Thanks to the prompt delivery, I managed to have a delicious Christmas. Thank you very much.
