A farmer who has had death threats over a ‘pick your own Christmas turkey’ offer says the farm shop is having its busiest day ever thanks to the inadvertent publicity.

The Greendale farm owner, Mat Carter, arrived at the shop near Exeter this morning to find blue paint with the words ‘Murder!’ and ‘Go vegan’ sprayed across the door by enraged animal activists.

Pheasants hung outside the shop were also sprayed with blue paint in response to the offer for the public to choose, name, feed and look after their Christmas turkey for two months before it is slaughtered.

Mat said he does not blame all vegans: “There are two camps,” he said. “There are the people who are militantly approaching anybody who touches meat and who has no understanding for others’ points of view.

“And then there are the vegans I welcome with open arms who come into our shop and buy vegetables and are happy to let everybody live and let live.

“I strongly stand by our whole position on this – fundamentally we are fishermen and farmers and I think anybody who eats meat should know where it comes from.

As a relatively new father myself, I want my son to know that his sausages come from pigs.
