Back British farming this Christmas and buy a bird for the festive feast that has been locally reared. That's the message from NFU this Yuletime.

NFU poultry board member and turkey farmer Mike Bailey said: “Buying your turkey directly from the farm where it has been produced not only benefits a local farming business but provides you with a great tasting bird reared to the highest standards. If you’re going to the local supermarket then look carefully at the country of origin labelling and keep an eye out for the Red Tractor logo, which also provides a guarantee of traceability, environmental protection, food safety and hygiene and welfare standards. It really is a great way to Back British Farming this Christmas.”
