Buy Pasture Raised Turkey

"Pasture raised turkey" is more than a label; it's a commitment to a way of farming that puts taste, health, quality, and the life of the animal first.

"Outdoor access" and "free range" do not describe pasture raised turkey; "Outdoor access" and "free range" are words used by the conventional poultry industry to make you think you're buying something different while they serve you more of the same. It's classic bait and switch.

Pasture raised turkeys are different because the birds continually move through green grass and sunshine. It's more than "access." Pastured turkeys are raised on a living environment for most of their life.

Pastured Poultry Difference

With constant access to fresh pasture, pastured poultry is better for the chickens, the land, and the people. 

Pastured poultry:

  • connects you to the face behind the food.
  • turns manure into an asset that builds fields, soils and wildlife ecology.
  • imparts a deeper flavor and firmer texture.
  • reduces the need for antibiotics, medications, and coccidiastats. 
  • harnesses the good things about nature.
  • empowers local and rural economies.
