2 thoughts on “Modern turkeys twice the size of turkeys from 80 years ago

    In Britain we eat turkeys for Christmas, and in our house we always eat the old-fashioned type that are smaller and more expensive. They are free range and taste better too!
    However, I understand that the modern intensively-reared turkeys generate less CO2 per pound of meat. Choices aren’t always easy.

      There are trade-offs to everything. Some are clear and some are not. I haven’t had free-range turkey, to my knowledge, and never had wild turkey. I’d certainly try it.

      Thanks for taking a look. I thought this was an interesting follow-up to the wild turkey post.
