Apparently only somewhat. Item on NPR last night about Narragansett turkeys, which are making at comeback (at $6/lb!) because hip consumers like the “original” flavor (“It’s not just a vehicle for gravy. There’s more real flavor to it. It’s not real gamey…”) and they are supporting “native” species. Except (as was mentioned in passing) the Narragansett is a hybrid of native wild turkeys and breeds brought by early English. So even some of our native turkey species aren’t so much.
