Keeping the Christmas centrepiece local with South Powrie Farm
The Pate family have been farming on the hills above Dundee at South Powrie Farm – right on the southern boundary of Angus – for four generations. While predominantly arable, in recent years they have made a business from rearing turkeys for the local market at Christmas. They specialise in the KellyBronze breed, raising them outdoors to full maturity and then ensuring they're hung for up to 14 days to maximise on taste. Pre-ordering is essential, and the turkeys are collected from their farm shed just before Christmas, when they've also got some festive trimmings and locally farmed vegetables on sale.
