KellyBronze Free Range Turkeys are not just Free Range, they are Bred To Be Wild!
Sixty years ago the bronze feathered turkey all but disappeared from our plates due to the little black feathers that were left in the skin. We call it designer stubble! The modern white-feathered turkey does, of course have the same number of quills left, however, due to the white pigment they cannot be seen. For this aesthetic reason the traditional bronze turkey disappeared and sadly, along with it, went flavour and eating qualities…crazy!
It takes time, passion and a walk on the wild side to create excellence. If it were that easy, everyone would be doing it!
They are harmless and most of them that may be left will shrivel up during cooking. As we hand pluck, it is impossible to remove each and every one of them. Please don’t ruin your Christmas day with tweezers trying to remove them, if, however, you enjoy taking them out, please sign up for our plucking team next year!
