TURKEYS are flying out of the freezer at Tintinhull’s Quast Turkeys as festive fever hits the region and the nation.
Owner Colin Quast said he was very happy with the way business was going and it was becoming a bit of a tradition for people to go directly to Quast to get their Christmas turkeys.
He said he was also pleased people were supporting local growers.
“More and more locals are coming out to support us now,” he said.
No matter where you are, people are adorning their Christmas tables with Quast turkeys.
Each year the Tintinhull grower sells about 40,000 turkeys at this time of the year through wholesale and retail, and 20,000 through various outlets throughout the year.
Our local turkeys are sold throughout the country in Queensland, South Australia and even the Northern Territory.
Mr Quast said the poultry picks for locals were the turkey rolls, but some people still liked the traditional bird.
He said the buffet, which is the white meat on the bone, was also a popular choice for Christmas.
If you haven’t selected your bird of choice for Christmas dinner, Quast is open seven days until December 23 from 8am-5pm, and from 8am-noon on Monday, December 24.
