The Rare Breed Survival Trust runs an ‘Ask the Farmer’ event at the Royal Three Counties Show and for the last four years we have taken all the recognised varieties and talked turkey to those who come to the tent.
As part of the event a ‘mock auction’ was held in the tent with various items being sold.
Immediately prior to the auction event one of our turkeys laid an egg and Jack the auctioneer quickly turned this into a ‘live auction’ as it was sold off to raise funds.
Well after much banter and bidding the still warm turkey egg actually achieved an amazing £20.00.
At those prices maybe we should auction more turkey eggs.
