This was our first time, our first experience of South Orsmby / Massingbird Mundy. So we'll forget for a moment the clandestine pickup, our 'lost' order, and the product labelling, this is by far THE BEST turkey we have ever eaten!! Moist, succulent, full-on flavour, so much so that you feel guilty for eating it when it's not Christmas Day. There's a decent layer of fat under the skin of the breast that really keeps the meat moist during roasting. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Now, we did click and collect and had instructions for a 2-hour period 2 weeks hence, from Wood Farm. Beware, there's no South Ormsby or other appropriate signage, you just need to turn into "Wood Farm Stack Yard" where a couple of people emerge from a van parked there and wander off to the buildings to get your produce.
All well and good (and another first-timer showed up as we were leaving, equally as confused), until the people said there was no turkey crown we'd ordered, but held up 2 frozen breasts they'd found. Would that be okay? Although we'd been looking forward to the bones to make stock, we took the breasts. We were expecting fresh turkey, but they were frozen, packed as Lincoln Red (beef?) in February 2023, but saying Turkey. No problem, we'll go with it! The picture shows a still-frozen breast, and the last piece of the first one we couldn't help devouring
Would we order again? Absolutely!
