People can call a turkey Bronze simply by its feather colour and regardless of the breeding and methods of production behind it. It is important to understand that a KellyBronze is our own unique breed; it is a very slow growing bird and therefore has to be grown to full maturity to achieve the weight you need for Christmas. Then there is of course the age, combined with our free-range farming, hand plucking – without the use of water – traditional finishing, temperature controlled methods of hanging and finally our unique cooking times that ensure greatness. It is all in the detail and this vital sequence of events that result in the KellyBronze Turkey.
It is very easy to genetically put the bronze feather colour onto a mass produced white turkey. They can grow these birds quickly in buildings for just 10 weeks plus. They can then be processed in a factory that uses automated plucking machines, using water and then bag in carbon dioxide to lengthen shelf life. This turkey can still be called Bronze and therein lies the difference; it will have none of the flavour, texture, gravy or eating qualities of a KellyBronze
