Master turkey farmer Judd Culver will be here to talk about the amazing Kelly Bronze turkeys that he and his family raise, and offer a tasting of these delicious dry-aged birds.
About Kelly Bronze Turkeys
The Cadillac of Turkeys. The Kelly Bronze turkeys are raised by our good friend Judd Culver in Crozet, VA. The heritage bronze breed was revived by Dr. Kelly (one of the few people in the world to have a doctorate in turkey husbandry), and has been voted the best turkey in Britain for the last ten years and running!
These turkeys are not just free-range: they are wild-foraging. They are allowed to roam the farm on their own, living their lives much like a wild turkey does. After harvest, the birds are hand-plucked and dry-hung like a traditional game bird. This means not only do the turkeys not need brining, but the meat is also more flavorful, denser, and cooks faster: just like a dry-aged steak does.
