Free-Range Turkey Drumsticks from New Zealand (1kg)

Horizon Farms


These turkey legs are a fantastic addition to any celebration and you can prepare them in a variety of ways - such as roasting them, smoking them, or frying them. Since these legs have the skin still on, we recommend cooking them in boiling water first, and then moving them into the oven for the final touch to get them brown and crispy. If you prefer dark meat over light meat, turkey leg is what you are looking for. Turkey meat is known for its high protein low-fat values. If you are looking for the highest quality of free-range turkey - you've come to the right place.

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).

Convenient and tasty

Translated from Japanese: Each package contains 4 turkey legs. They’re very convenient because you don't have to cook them all at once, just loosen them a little bit and let them sit apart, then just thaw the amount you want to eat. You can make a delicious and easy dish by steaming one leg in a heavy pot with onions, carrots, and potatoes over medium-low heat for about half an hour, and then adding water and a little wine to the rest of the pot after eating to make a nice broth.


Translated from Japanese: I put it in a zip bag with oil and seasonings first and then cooked it at low temperature in a pot filled with hot water before cooking it. It was more chewy than chicken and even my 85-year-old mother ate one. We made a good Christmas memory.

Valuable Turkey

Translated from Japanese: Are Turkey legs eaten in Japan? It's hard to get anything that hasn't been given hormones or antibiotics, so I bought it.
