Pastured Heritage TURKEY PRINCIPALS:
While we recognize that the commodity system of mass produced poultry is there for the masses, including big chain stores and even some of your local co-ops, the movement to awareness of both animal welfare, and how our animals fit into our eco-system have led a strong demand for poultry raised with principals.
Our Turkeys are raised on my pastures from day-old poults, and fed a corn/ soy free organic ration just like our chickens! This is a less streamlined way of production, with labor done by hand in small groups. We have our birds frozen in October, before the weather is unsuitable for them to be outdoors in our Minnesota weather.
In 2021 we will launch our Turkey Saturday, when we will deliver the bulk of turkeys the Saturday before Thanksgiving. While it doesn’t rhyme like Turkey Tuesday, it’s much more convenient for folks to pick up their bird on Saturday! Of course you can pick your bird up another day if you prefer. Just let us know a week ahead.

Happy Heritage Turkeys graze our rotational pasture while contributing to the improvement of soil fertility and at the same time, soil carbon sequestration the same way my grandparents did over 70 years ago. These birds are heritage breeds, and grow slower. We must start them earlier, and they will be smaller at the time of processing. This will be our first year offering them, we are a little unsure what to expect.
