Heritage-breed turkeys are beautiful to watch, each boasting more striking, patterned feathers than the next—but raising them is no small feat. When compared with conventional broad-breasted turkeys, heritage-breed birds grow far more slowly, giving them time to develop healthy organs and strong skeletal structures before taking on weight in muscle mass. These turkeys therefore require ample space to graze, and so are overall more expensive to care for. At Glynwood, our turkeys are raised on pasture with the highest welfare standards. Most important of all, the heritage difference is something you can taste! Heritage-breed turkeys boast richer, darker meat that we believe is miles more flavorful.
