Our free range turkeys are reared on a farm in East Devon who have specialised in producing Christmas poultry for three generations.
Bronze turkeys are so called because of the bronze-like sheen to their plumage. Bronze turkey meat is a shade darker than white turkey meat and has a subtle ‘gamey’ taste, bursting with natural juices. The Bronze was a result of breeding domestic free range turkeys brought over to America from Europe (18th century), with wild turkeys, resulting in a larger, meatier bird.
White turkeys have a more delicate taste and are the more traditional option in Europe for Christmas dinner. This variety of turkey is the most familiar to us and characteristically has a broader breast than the bronze turkey.
