Why Buy Pasture-Raised?

Commercially raised turkeys are found in most grocery stores. They can be purchased cheap, usually as low as $30 for a 20 pound bird. In some cases, the grocery store gives them away if you spend a certain amount of money. Ever wonder why? 

These birds are not treated well. They have limited space to move around and no place to roost while sleeping. In most cases never they see the sunshine or have access to fresh grass and bugs. They have limited access to water and force fed constantly to make them gain weight. They are treated with antibiotics, chemical preservatives and/or pesticides and their feed usually contains GMO's to help keep the cost of raising them down.

Our pasture-raised birds have access to fresh air, sunshine and open pastures daily. At four weeks of age, our turkeys are introduced to the outside. You should see them go. They can't wait to graze on the fresh clover and hunt for bugs hiding in the grass. 

When they reach 6 weeks of age, our birds never see the inside of the barn again. They live just like a wild turkey would. They forage for food, bathe in the sunshine, and roost on trees we dragged into the field which fell during the last winter. They run around gobbling, clucking and chirping all day long. If the weather gets nasty, we have open huts in the field for them to shelter under if they choose. We do feed them a mixture of corn, soybeans and alfalfa, but all our feed in non GMO and Certified organic. We never use antibiotics or growth hormones. If I was a turkey, this would be my choice. 

How about you?
