Welcome

Welcome to Rookery Farm and the Home of The Original Norfolk Black Turkey. Since 1880 the Peele family have been synonymous with breeding and rearing turkeys in Norfolk. In the 1950’s Frank Peele (my grand father) started a breeding programme to protect the true Norfolk Blacks which we still follow today.

Together with hatching the chicks we also grow our own corn to feed the turkeys while they free range outside. This gives them their unique flavour which we have championed for over 137 years! Please continue our turkey trail!

As my predecessors, I take great pride in maintaining the 4th generation family farm and preserving the True Original Norfolk Black Turkey, for you all to enjoy.

“Absolutely gorgeous – been having a Norfolk Black from Peeles for at least the last 20 years & have never been dissapointed! Plenty of tasty moist meat for Christmas dinner, boxing day and beyond! This is the only turkey I will eat & serve at Christmas! Guests always go away commenting how delicious it was & talk about it for months afterwards!”

“This year I had my first Peele’s Turkey and it did not disappoint! Plenty of moist meat for Christmas Dinner, Boxing day and even a turkey curry! The added Stuffing, Cranberry Relish and Apple juice completed the dinner. Amazing service from Claire, James and all the team. Thanks very much, looking forward to my next one!”

“All agree the best turkey we have ever had.”

“Just a quick message to tell you how much we enjoyed our Norfolk Black Turkey dinner yesterday! It was an absolutely delicious bird, far and away the best I have ever cooked or eaten in 40 years of preparing and consuming Christmas dinners. We’ll be returning to you for our turkey in 2016.
Many thanks and all the best for the New Year.”
