Turkey and goose eggs at the farmshop

I arrived just before the farm shop closed at lunchtime today and Sally who served me was in a rush. I managed a chat and after I'd been served I went to the car to fetch a camera. I couldn't resist recording the special  eggs on offer today, which are not regular items in the shop. I liked the photo of the turkey which lays the eggs. No sign of any geese however.

Ashley asked if I'd ever eaten either of them and I had to admit I hadn't. One of the men working for him came up to me and told me how twenty-five years ago he used to work with his family keeping more than 400 turkeys just a short way up the road.

I think I might find these eggs too rich. Ashley said they are used in making cakes quite a lot and he rather suggested that he didn't think that I was likely to do that. How wrong he might be.

Sally showed me a double-page spread in the centre of the Western Daily Press regional paper from a couple of days ago, with a large picture of all her family in the farm shop. A long article accompanied several other smaller pictures of her and her two brothers, Ashley and Keith, all looking very jovial, as they seem to all their customers.
