We raise our turkeys all summer for your fall feasting dinner. We only raise them during optimal pasture growing conditions and supplement them with local sourced nongmo grains that we grind fresh on the farm for the best nutrient levels. Turkeys start as day old poults in our brooder, as their feathers grow in we start letting them go outdoors and learn how fencing works. Once they are old enough and smart enough we move move their range shelter in the their yard, they quickly figure out this is pretty cool then start roosting in it at night. From there we move the shelter and electrified net fencing out to their pasture for 24/7 grazing all summer. Their shelter is moved 2-3 times a week, it has no floor so their manure is naturally spread on the ground, their pasture area is surrounded by a few hundred feet of electrified net fencing to keep out ground predators. This area is moved 1-2 times a week to fresh area so the turkeys always get clean lush grasses to graze and this type of management makes sure the pasture isn't impacted negatively.
Turkeys are processed on the farm in a dedicated enclosed facility with all approved equipment and supplies. We chill them, package, label, chill again for a few days before quickly freezing them for sale in November. We no longer offer non-frozen turkeys. If you object to this we are sorry you have an issue with our wanting to raise turkeys only during HUMANE HEALTHY WARM pasture conditions and we are sad that you don't know that turkeys purchased in any store that are labelled as fresh can be sold as FRESH at 28F for upto 6 months. Ours are briefly frozen for a few short weeks and are such outstanding quality that you will love our turkeys. Customers say our turkeys are even more tender and juicy than any other turkey. We hope you learn to appreciate what we do and why it's not about a label or it's all about how it was raised in your local community.
BY POPULAR REQUEST WE ARE GOING TO TAKE PRE-ORDERS for turkeys once again.
HOld on as we figure out how to do this fairly and easily for us farmers and you dedicated local turkey lovers. Meanwhile make sure you are on our email list for the latest updates of everything farm.
