How Our Turkeys Are Raised

3-stamp.png

We raise all our turkeys on fresh pasture, and with no chemicals, antibiotics, or GMO feeds. We pride ourselves in regularly moving our turkeys into fresh pasture. This is the game-changing distinction between our birds and industrial organic grocery store birds. And it makes a world of difference, as the Turkeys get up to 40% of their nutrients off the pasture.

Why Pasture-Raised Matters

Happier, healthier birds. Check out the video below to find out more about why we, and other farmers, are going back to raising birds on fresh pasture daily.

Tips + Tricks

What size turkey do I need?

A good rule of thumb is around 1 lb of turkey per adult. That does not include leftovers, so if you want leftovers, plan for 2 or more pounds per adult!

Thawing Suggestions

Your turkey will come frozen. To thaw in a refrigerator: allow 24 hrs for every 5 lbs, to thaw in water: allow 3 hrs for every 5 lbs.

Cooking Suggestions

Pasture-raised Turkeys cook faster than industrial-raised turkeys. We highly recommend using a meat thermometer to cook to the appropriate temp, and not overcook. Generally we have found best cook times to be in the neighborhood of 8 to 10 minutes per pound.

With Half Turkeys , again we recommend using a meat thermometer. Surprisingly, its common to use twice the weight of a half turkeys to determine cook time. For example, if your Half Turkey weighs 10 lbs, you'd use 20 lbs to determine your cook time (20 lbs x 8 to 10 minutes / lb = 160 to 200 minutes).

Do I need to brine my turkey?

It's optional. Some customers brine it and love it, while others don't brine it and love it.

1 Half turkeys are cut lengthwise down the middle, so that you will receive either the left or right side of the turkey (includes a breast, leg thigh, and wing). It might sound confusing at first, but because of how Half Turkeys are cut, its common to use twice the weight to determine cook time-- since it takes the same amount of time to cook the meat through to the bone as if it were a whole bird.
