We are delighted that Santa’s Grotto in aid of Reuben’s Retreat is back again at Lymefield with Santa Claus.
The local charity, Reuben’s Retreat, and their hard-working team of volunteers create a magical setting here at Lymefield in the Glasshouse for Santa and his elves.
Reuben’s Retreat is in the next phase of its huge project to provide support for children and their families who have life-limiting conditions or have lost a child.
Located in the heart of Glossop this fantastic charity provides ‘a place to Relax, Recharge, Remember, Rebuild, built on an army of love and compassion.’ At Lymefield Garden Centre, we are very proud to facilitate Reuben’s Retreat with their fundraising this December.
The Grotto will be here in December on 3rd, 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th & 18th December. Each day it will run from 10am until 4pm. It is £7 per child (discounts for siblings) including a gift in Santa’s Grotto.
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 birdor 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 jointas 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.
