Truly Pastured, Organic Turkeys Shipped to Your Door

Like all the poultry we sell, these turkeys are raised by our friends Rachel and Dave at Wrong Direction Farm. They are certified organic, and being raised on pasture means they eat plenty of grass and other plants. One of these is the perfect centerpiece to a Thanksgiving dinner. Whole turkeys are available beginning in October and on through the holidays, while ground turkey and cuts are in the store year-round.

Beyond Free Range

There are a lot of labels on meat, especially poultry. Of these, few mean less than free range. While the words might conjure images of a flock of regal birds strutting across the open prairie, the reality is anything but. Free range poultry usually lives penned up inside massive barns, with small porches or runs that allow a few birds access to the outside.

In contrast, the turkeys we sell live outside on fresh grass. They are moved to new pasture regularly. Further, they are certified Organic, so they are guaranteed free from pesticides, herbicides, hormones, or anything else.

How To Cook a Pastured Turkey

When are Turkeys Available?

Look for whole turkeys as the holidays approach, meaning the end of October or early November. Ground turkey and turkey cuts, like drumsticks and wings, are generally available year round.
