Pastured Turkeys - $6/lb. ($25 deposit required)
We seasonally pasture-raise heritage breed turkeys. Our turkeys are never caged and spend their days roaming in the pasture and the orchard, hunting for bugs, seeds and grasshoppers. We are currently raising Royal Palm and Narraganset turkeys. We chose these two heritage breeds because they are not very common, yet especially delicious. Their meat is flavorful and firm, but not tough. Compared to commercially raised turkeys, the breast of these turkeys is more proportional with their overall body size.
These birds were commonly raised in farms across the United States before factory farming became the predominant method. Royal Palm and Narragansett turkeys are both medium sized turkeys. They feed themselves on pasture, so their diet is much better than a typical factory farmed breed of turkey that has been developed to eat only feed and not move around much. We do provide an Organic (No-Soy) whole grain ration to our turkeys to ensure they reach full size in time for harvest.
These turkeys are also beautiful, so schedule your appointment to visit the farm to check them out.
How to Buy
Our turkeys will be ready for eating in November. Both Royal Palm & Narragansett turkeys are medium sized breeds, so expect processed weights of 12-18 lbs.
