What could be better than a locally-raised turkey for your holiday table? Eaton Farm has been raising Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys since 2009. Named for its bronze-colored sheen, this old standby breed was originally a hybrid of eastern wild turkeys and the domestic turkeys brought to the United States by European colonists. It became quite popular in the turkey industry prior to the 1960’s, but was replaced by the faster growing white turkey and became a rarity. Bronze turkeys are now experiencing a renaissance among small farmers for their good disposition, ability to thrive on pasture, and superior quality. For more information on how we raise our turkeys on fresh forage, sunshine, and farm-ground non-GMO feed, checkout our Growing Practices.
Anticipated size range is 12 to 22 lbs. per bird. Because our turkey enterprise is small, there is a limited inventory, and the exact sizes cannot be determined until processing. Therefore, birds will be matched with size preferences as closely as possible.
If you would like to order more than one bird, please indicate so in the comments. For Christmas turkeys, consider purchasing two now and freezing one for later, as turkeys will not be available in December this year.
