History John Wright Turkeys

The turkey enterprise was started in 1964 after John Wright Snr left agricultural college. Turkeys were sold New York dressed to local butchers with only about from 50 sold at the farm.

After joining the TFTA in 2000 we have been encouraged to expand the farm gate trade and last year we sold almost 500 direct to customers with more going to butchers and farm shops.

The farm was originally a dairy farm with arable, growing wheat, barley and clover leys for sheep. Beef cattle and pigs were kept until the crash of farming market in the 1990?s when they all were sold. The farm has evolved into an all arable farm growing wheat, barley, oil seed rape and beans.

Thank to the turkeys are farm has survived and grown.
