New events manager joins turkey firm

Kelly Turkeys, makers of the award-winning Kelly Bronze, has appointed a new shows and events manager.

The new manager, Becky McConnell, will be organising the celebrations for Kelly Bronze’s 30th anniversary this year. McConnell will also take over administration of the Kelly Bronze Farmers franchise scheme, which involves farmers in most areas of the country providing a local supply of the award-winning turkeys.

McConnell joins the company from an IT role in the City of London, but said she “enjoys cooking”.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary the company is to produce a special turkey for the Christmas season, which they said will be grown in the woodland of the family’s farm and fed on a blend of ‘naked’ oats, flaked maize and wild nettles.
