Heritage (Standard) Bronze Turkey Breed: $8.00 per pound
Not to be mistaken for the Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey, the Heritage (Standard) Bronze
Turkey has been around for most of American History. It originated by crossing the Wild Eastern
Turkey with the domesticated turkeys brought over by early European Colonists. The cross
resulted in a vigorous, larger turkey than the one brought over by the colonists as well as tamed
than the wild Eastern turkey. This bird has the traditional round shape
Bourbon Red Turkey: $8.00 per pound
This breed was developed in Pennsylvania, but has gained popularity in Bourbon County,
Kentucky. It has since been known as the Bourbon Red Turkey. Bronze, White Holland and Buff
Turkeys were bred together to develop the Bourbon Red. This bird has a more triangular body
shape like that of a wild turkey and is coveted for its dark meat.
