Children explore Cookham's Copas turkey farm

Will Taylor

An insight into turkey farming was given to 45 children at Copas Traditional Turkeys.

Besides learning about how turkeys live and get fed, they raised more than £200 for the Fight for George campaign through donations at the farm in Grubwood Lane on Wednesday.

The children ranged from six months to 10-years-old, and they explored the fields, met the farm's 'turkey dog', which rounds up the birds, and went on a sweets hunt.

Now in its second year, the event sold out within a week of Copas Traditional Turkeys posting information about it online.

Dominic Spooner, marketing manager for the group, said: "Everyone who came had a great time and commented on how surprised they were at how truly free ranging the birds are.

"They live in our meadows and orchards here in Cookham roaming completely free."

Copas Traditional Turkeys runs various events, with the next being a food and wine evening on Thursday, November 24.
