Standard Bronze Turkeys

Turkeys for Sale

The classic American Thanksgiving turkey, this breed dates to the colonial period and was the pre-curser to the commercialized Broad-breasted Bronze turkey. Unlike the Broad-breasted variety, the Standard Bronze is long-lived, hardy and can reproduce naturally. They are voracious foragers and will keep a field mowed and de-bugged. Because they grow at a natural rate, taking at least six to eight months to reach butcher weight, these turkeys are the best you will ever taste. It closely resembles its ancestor, the Eastern Wild turkey, in conformation, but has a more domesticated personality. Standard Bronze turkeys also make great pets that will live for many years. We are actively engaged in the preservation of this breed through our breeding program. Read more…
