What is Bronze Turkey?
‘Bronze’ refers to the specific breed of turkey and is the original breed that people would recognise as a turkey. It’s the most traditional way to celebrate your Christmas. The bronze turkey grows to a large size, which makes it the perfect meat to feed a large crowd of people.
It takes longer for the bronze turkey to grow and develop to maturity – other white breeds have been cultivated over hundreds of years to be faster growing to produce meat more quickly. These are often referred to as ‘oven-ready’ breeds and came about as the popularity of turkey increased. The longer growth period results in a more intense flavour, which is often why the bronze is considered a more superior variety of turkey.
The intensity of the flavour of the bronze turkey makes it the perfect choice for a Christmas dinner — it’s not every day you get to celebrate!
The name of the bronze turkey refers to it’s plumage, which has an iridescent bronze sheen to it. It produces a mixture of white and brown meat to please everyone around the Christmas table. If you’re looking for a mouth-watering main, then buy bronze turkey from us.
What Makes our Bronze Turkey Special?
We know that our turkey is delicious – that’s why we choose it for our own Christmas dinners – but how do you know that bronze turkey from Eat Great Meat is a great choice?
Local, Yorkshire Turkey
Our bronze turkeys come from a farm just around the corner from where we’re based in South Yorkshire. We know Ron and David at Wartig’s Pule Hill Farm, which allows us to guarantee the standard of both the animal welfare and the meat itself. The birds have space to roam and wander around, which results in a much more delicious meat than from caged birds.
It also means that we can fully trace our meat and know that it’s 100% British.
Slow to Grow
Ron and David at the farm don’t rush the growth of their turkeys and allow them the time they need to reach full maturity. This makes for larger turkeys as well as tastier meat.
