In 2015, Crozier’s Turkeys was taken over by the Smith family; Kyle, Monique and their two young daughters, Isla and Ruby. Kyle has many years’ experience in the management of turkey farming.
Crozier’s Turkeys controls the whole process, from breeding and hatching to growing and processing, and we even prepare our own feed. Free from unnecessary antibiotics and hormones!
Crozier’s Turkeys is proud to bring you New Zealand’s ONLY 100% truly free range turkey. Each flock enjoys a three-acre paddock, where the birds are completely free to roam. They have shelter sheds fitted with roosts, so they can sleep as they would in the wild, as well as sheltering from adverse weather. Grass seed is used as bedding in the sheds and for the birds to dust bathe in.
To keep our truly free range reputation, Crozier’s Turkeys only produces birds over the warmer months. Otherwise, for animal welfare reasons, the birds would end up spending most of their lives locked in a shed, due to cold and wet weather conditions over the winter months.
Our turkeys are non-intensively farmed, so disease risks are lower, and there are no welfare issues common to intensive farming practices.
Our birds are processed through our small Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) approved processing plant. The processing is done by hand to ensure excellent quality control.
We only use an organic method of sanitation, so there is no use of chlorine in the handling and washing of our birds.
Turkey is one of the leanest meats available! It is high in zinc, B vitamins, phosphorus, tryptophan, selenium, potassium and protein!
The Taste of a Crozier’s Turkey is SECOND TO NONE!
