There's nothing better than local, free range turkey. Our turkeys are tender, juicy and packed with flavor. We get rave reviews from our customers constantly and do typically sell out, so get your order in early. Turkey is one of our very favorite animals to raise (if we had to pick a favorite!) They love people. They come running when they see you. They always have things to tell you, it is quite funny. It is nice to realize that these birds really love being outside in the warm weather, enjoying life. Being able to give them a good life, free from terrible containment is satisfying to us.
These Broad-Breasted White and Bronze turkeys produce the juicy, rich flavor that we all associate with Thanksgiving! They grow to be anywhere from 12-20 pounds. $5/lb.

Types of Turkey:
The Broad Breasted White:
This is a fast-growing large and soft-natured bird. They produce the juicy, rich flavor that we all associate with Thanksgiving! They grow to be anywhere from 15-30 pounds.
How Our Turkeys are Raised:
All of our animals are pasture-based. This is allows the animals to have an enjoyable life full of valuable nutrition and to live the way birds should, freely. The birds fertilize the soil and encourage nutritious grasses, clovers and legumes to grow which revitalizes the land. We raise them in mobile coops with mobile fencing, and they start outside like this from the very beginning of life. We have an intricate pasture plan where the cows and horses rotate through the fields first and then the poultry follows. They have lush pastures to graze in, within the large animal pastures.
What Our Turkeys Eat:
We feed all of our poultry grain and we never use hormones or antibiotics. We have our grain custom made for us, because we try to buy as much grain grown in Vermont as we can. It isn't always available, but we can usually have our wheat and soy grown in Vermont. We have Ken Van Hazinga, the grower, take the grains to Green Mountain Feeds where they supplement the Vermont grain with the extra grains and vitamins we need. We also grow organic carrots and sunflowers for our animals. As we grow our farm we look forward to producing more of our own grain right here on the farm, by animal power.
