Practices Make Perfect
We’re proud of what we do. And we know we do it well. Plain and simply, here’s why.
Homes with Heart
Our flocks live in clean, modern, well-lit, ventilated barns with fresh natural litter made from wood shavings. It may sound like a little thing to you, but we change those shavings often so the air smells fresh and clean. Some Conventional farmers only change their litter once every two years. One whiff and even a city kid could tell you which is preferable. We also give our turkeys more space in their barns. That means they’ve got room to roam and easier access to feed and water than those on industrial farms.
Pure Vegetarian Diet
We feed our turkeys with respect to their natural tendencies. This means we provide them food that they would choose for themselves. They get their fair share of grains, which includes corn, soybeans and a healthy blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and oils. And they are happy. What they don’t get are animal by-products, or antibiotics. These things can make them sick and distressed. There’s really no need for that. Naturally, our turkeys develop the way they’re supposed to and when they reach your family’s table, taste exactly like turkey should. Plain and simple, this is the way it’s meant to be.
Simply No Antibiotics
Did you know that some farmers actually give antibiotics to healthy birds? In our world, that’s just never done. We believe that giving antibiotics to healthy animals is unnecessary and, to be honest, irresponsible. No one wants antibiotics in their system when they’re healthy.
Bet you’re wondering how we do it. Well, we serve our birds a good diet. We let them exercise. We provide clean shelter. Our birds aren’t crowded and stressed, so they don’t get sick. Doing all these things right, means we don’t have to give our birds antibiotics. In other words, we work hard to grow healthy turkeys. Pure and natural, you’ll taste the difference.
We’re farmers, not drivers. So it’s probably natural that we think turkeys should spend as much time as they can on the farm and as little as possible in transport. That’s why our family farms are as close as possible to our processing plant. We use extra care in moving each bird in order to make the transition humane, successful and stress-free. No bumps, no bruises, just fancy-free turkey for your table.
