Should you buy a cheap turkey?

At GoodtoKnow, we're all about finding you the cheapest prices, but nobody wants to pay for something of low quality, especially at Christmas.

Always do your research about the quality of birds on offer and don't be afraid to ask in store. Perhaps Christmas is the time of year that we feel like we can splash out a little bit more and treat ourselves?

What about the local butcher?

When we asked GoodtoKnowers on Facebook where they buy their turkey, the majority of people said they go to their local butcher to order their festive feast.

You can get a great bargain on a really good quality bird by having a chat to your butcher - see what they recommends!
