Pasture Raised Turkeys
Our turkeys are raised indoors until they are around 8 weeks of age, when they can handle all types of weather (fun fact: baby turkeys are very delicate as compared to chickens and require much more attention). Then they are moved out to our pastures.
Once on pasture, they scavenge on grass, bugs, and whatever else they find. They also are given a non-medicated (antibiotic free) feed from our local elevator and unlimited amounts of fresh water. Our turkeys will received no antibiotics during their lifetime.
We get our birds processed at a local meat market. They will be cleaned, dressed and ready to eat upon pick up. You can select to pick them up fresh or frozen.
For 2021, we will have two options for turkeys, the beloved heritage Bourbon Red turkey and the delicious traditional Broad Breasted Bronze turkey. Read below for more information on each type of turkey.
We are currently taking reservations for Thanksgiving 2021.
Pasture Raised Broad Breasted Turkey
For Thanksgiving 2021, we are excited to offer the Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys (also know as BBB). The BBB's are known for their delicious, large breasts. These turkeys will be more like a "traditional" turkey, plus all the benefits of being pasture raised. Since our turkeys are on pasture, our meat will have a deeper flavor and firmer texture.
Pasture Raised Heritage Turkeys
We are proud to once again raise Bourbon Red Turkeys, considered by many to be an American classic and one of the prettiest breeds of turkeys. They are also known for their flavorful, high quality, lean and tender meat. Being in the heritage turkey category, their meat is touted by many as the best tasting turkey for Thanksgiving.
