Organically-fed Pastured Turkeys

The Feeds
Our turkeys are raised in the summer, on fresh daily pasture. We feed them certified organic feed along with the grasses, clovers, mineral-rich broadleaf forbs, and insects they forage.

Since turkeys are agressive foragers, they do get a significant amount of food from the pasture. However, like other poultry, they prefer to have grains as their staple diet.

The Breeds
We raise both the standard hybrid turkeys, called the Large White; and the more traditional type Orlopp Bronze turkeys. In 2017, we are offering for the first time a new compact breed called Mini Classic. These should be just the thing for those of you who were requesting a smaller turkey. We expect them to be about 10-15 pounds.

The Large Whites are very fast-growing compared to traditional breeds, therefore they eat less in their short life. We are able to offer them for a lower price because of this feed efficiency. They were bred to have a high proportion of breast meat, and tender, mild-flavoured meat.

The Orlopp Bronze, on the other hand, since it is an ancestor of the traditional coloured Bronze turkey, is somewhat slower growing, and therefore more flavourful. It is more like the typical old-fashioned farm turkey envisioned by most people. It does have more breast meat than the older Bronze varieties, and is quite tender, since we butcher them at a relatively young age. Because they eat more feed than the Whites, we need to charge more. 

We'll let you choose the flavour you prefer!
