Dryden farms is a family business growing arable crops, agricultural contracting on over 3,000 acres across County Durham and producing Free range KellyBronze turkeys and free-range geese for Christmas.

Welcome to Dryden Farms...

Murton Moor Farm is a family run farm situated 5 miles east of picturesque Durham city. The business has grown from 200 acres in the 1970’s to approximately 650 acres of arable land plus a further 3000 acres of agricultural contracting on farms all over County Durham.

In 1999 Judith introduced a flock of 150 free-range KellyBronze turkeys to the business. The flock has then steadily increased over the years and we now rear and process 700 birds of which there are 550 KellyBronze turkeys and 150 free-range geese. Collection is from the farm gate or one of our collection points around the North East, on the two days preceding Christmas.


Read some of the kind words our customers and partners have spoken of our service.

  • The KellyBronze Free Range Turkey is, in our view, the king of Christmas turkeys. If you’re after something tasty on a budget, go for the Lidl Braemore Self-Basting Turkey.
