Organic Turkey Legs
Rich brown meat, bags of flavour
Organic turkey legs deliver the hearty, traditional flavour of brown poultry meat – and plenty of it. Though the white meat of the breast is much sought after, we think it's the tasty brown meat that's the real prize on the turkey carcass. Less prone to drying out, it has a great depth of flavour that means it works in both delicate and robust recipes. And if you don't want to cook a whole bird, a turkey leg is the perfect mini roast, yielding enough meat to generously serve two people.
*Your Turkey Leg may be a bit bigger than the 1kg we’ve charged you for. Please ensure you pop it onto your scales before cooking to ensure you cook it for the appropriate length of time.
In intensive farming systems, you're far more likely to find white turkeys being reared. That's because they've been selectively bred to grow quickly, laying down abundant white breast meat at the expense of leg meat. We prefer the old-fashioned conformation of the Kelly Bronze, a bird with a well-balanced carcass that takes a bit longer to grow. These birds are built as nature intended, with strong legs that are the result of an active free-range lifestyle. As in all things, we believe that nature knows what she's talking about when it comes to turkeys.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
The poultry we sell has been organically reared they are free-range in smaller flocks than other birds, when the animal is ready it is slaughtered and butchered on the farm it was reared on so not to overstress the birds.

If you're simply roasting your turkey leg, it'll take 30 to 40 minutes in a moderate oven. When it's done, the skin will be crispy and the knee joint will yield easily when gently twisted. Wrap in foil and let the leg rest for a few minutes before serving. For traditional flavours, rub the skin with a little olive oil, sprinkle with some thyme leaves and lay on some very thin slices of lemon. Or make a simple rub with Chinese 5-spice, some brown sugar and a sprinkling of salt. Rub the skin with some sesame oil before massaging in the rub. The kitchen will smell divine as the meat cooks.
