About Us

The Pryce family has run a business on the banks of the River Etherow in Broadbottom for nearly 80 years and 4 generations, evolving from a small dairy farm and plant nursery popular with locals to create a thriving Garden Centre, Farm Shop, and Tea Room. Lymefield remains owned by the family with Robert and David Pryce running the business side by side.

We’re proud to say that throughout our long history, we’ve focused on doing one thing really well: providing local goods and services with a personal touch to our local community.


Our Farm Shop source much of its food from local producers and we love to shout out our local food heroes. The Butcher’s counter sources their pork & beef from local farmers in Chisworth and their mutton & lamb from our own flock. Our Deli Counter is bursting with local & British cheeses, meats, and Lymefield products and our shelves & fridges stock the best quality ingredients for your kitchen.

If we can’t source it locally, we source it regionally, with an emphasis on artisan produce that captures the flavour and feel of where it comes from.


The Tea Room sources all its meat, vegetables, and many other items from the Farm Shop to create imaginative and delicious specials to accompany our menu favourites! Our daily specials are created to show the range of our Farm Shop produce while our favourites of excellent cakes, pies and sandwiches remain a constant on our menu.

In our Garden centre, the plants are also ‘local’ in a sense – our selection is hand-picked for hardiness in the face of the worst weather that the North West can throw at us! There is always a colourful display of seasonal plants on outside our doors, with an abundance of plants in our Glasshouse from spring until summer. Our plant range includes acers, fruit trees, roses, buxus, ilex plus many many pots!

We have a well-established delivery service, delivering our local orders ourselves. Lymefield loves to throw an event; it gives all the team great pride to work with local charities throughout the year to host many events at Lymefield to aid our local community.


We pride ourselves on our friendly service, and our whole team would be delighted to hear from you, whatever the need, want, or problem!

Turkey Cooking Times

Christmas Roast Cooking Times Cheat List

At Lymefield, we love to provide the very best poultry, beef, pork, and lamb for your Christmas feast.  Once you’ve chosen your Christmas centrepiece, it all comes down to the cooking. So we have put together a handy Christmas Roast Cheat blog with all poultry & joint serving sizes and cooking times to make your Christmas Dinner as hassle-free as possible.


Order your turkey from Lymefield for collection or delivery. Our Barn reared birds are sourced from just over the hill in Holmfirth, so the food miles are low and the supply chain is fully traceable. These turkeys are slowly reared to develop a thick layer of fat to ensure a succulent, tasty roast.

You can choose from either a fresh full local bird or if thigh meat is not your thing, try a Turkey crown which are the same birds without the thighs.

For easy carving and cooking, choose a turkey joint as this is a 100% breast meat joint. Add a bit of luxury by ordering one of our prepared turkey joints stuffed with your choice of stuffing or thigh meat.

If you are looking for a treat then try one of our Herb-Fed free-range bronze turkeys. These turkeys have lived life in the lap of the luxury, roaming over acres of Yorkshire pasture and feasting on fresh herbs. Their stress-free lifestyle and additive-free diet add an extra dimension of flavour to their rich taste.

Turkey Cooking Times

To prepare the turkey, remove the bird from the fridge one hour before cooking. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4, remove the giblets from your fresh bird and cover with foil. Roast the turkey for your required time (see table below) basting every 30 minutes, ensure the juices run clear. If you have a thermometer, the internal temperature should be 70C. Remove and cover the turkey and allow to rest for one hour.

Turkey Cooking Times
Weight Serves Times
4 – 4.5kg 6 2 1/4 hours
4.5 – 5kg 6-7 2 1/2 hours
5 – 5.5kg 7-8 2 3/4 hours
5.5 – 6kg 8-10 3 hours
6 – 6.5kg 10 – 12 3 1/4 hours
6.5kg – 7kg 12 – 15 3 1/2 hours

Order your turkey from Lymefield Farm Shop. Our closing date for Christmas Food orders is Sunday 13th December. Happy cooking!
