16th December: Track your turkey

Over 10 million turkeys are bought over Christmas, pay particular attention to the origin of the bird as many are imported or travel long distances to be slaughtered and to the shop.  Choose a bird that has had a better life, opt for a locally reared free range turkey bought from a farmers market or farm shop and ask the supplier about its life from birth to butcher.
