How To Cook A Perfect Pasture-Raised Turkey 2019

White Oak Pastures Team

UPDATED FOR THANKSGIVING 2019! ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON NOV 10, 2016 8:14:00 AM

We are grateful for the opportunity to provide you and your loved ones with a delicious pastured turkey for this special time of the year. Cooking a whole pasture-raised bird can be intimidating, and we want you to feel well-prepared to cook our turkeys this holiday season.

Our turkeys are athletes. They spend their entire lives roaming our lush pastures, hunting, pecking, scratching, and dustbathing as nature intended. Because of their diet and exercise, our birds are lean animals. When cooking them, keep in mind they have less fat than commodity turkeys. We have found that cooking with a wet, slow heat yields a more tender turkey dish.

Check out our recipe and tips to cook the perfect pastured turkey for...

Stew This: The Healthiest Hens On The Market

White Oak Pastures Team

We'll just go ahead and say it: we believe White Oak Pastures’ Pasture-Raised Stewing Hens make the best stews, soups, and broths. Our ladies get plenty of activity, spending their days laying eggs, scratching the soil to forage for grub, and roosting in our pastures. Compared to hens on conventional farms, our unconfined, pasture-raised hens can produce higher levels of Vitamins A, E, and Omega Fatty Acids.

After a healthy, long life, our hens develop a lot of connective tissue from all their activity. Connective tissue is incredibly rich in vitamins, minerals, and flavor but not well-suited for fast preparations (like grilling), because it takes a long time to break down and become soft.
