Broad Breasted White and Broad Breasted Bronze

This is your Thanks Giving, Christmas or any Holiday choice.  

White is commercially the most widely used breed of domesticated turkey.  They produce more breast meat and their pin feathers are less visible when the carcass is dressed due to their white color. These properties have made the breed popular in commercial turkey production but enthusiasts of slow food argue that the development of this breed and the methods in commercial turkey production have come at a cost of less flavor.

Bronze is another great choice for meat! The Orlopp Broad Breasted Bronze Turkey is fast growing and produces an ample supply of meat.
