Wilton turkey farm doubles its flock and sells them all

WILTON - Anticipating demand for home-grown fowl to grace Wilton's Thanksgiving tables, Millstone Farm doubled its turkey flock from 30 last year to 60 this year and sold them all.

The birds are broad-breasted Bronze turkeys, the most popular turkey variety for most of American history, according to the Livestock Conservancy. It's a large bird. Drew Duckworth of Millstone Farm guessed their birds would average 18 to 22 pounds when they came back from the butcher.
