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.

Pastured Poultry Bone Broth

Jenni Harris

This is a great way to utilize all of the animal. We take leftover meat trimmings, bones, and any other scraps to make this flavor rich broth. This broth once finished can be used to add more flavor, as well as nutrition to soups and gravies, or you can add some fresh herbs and spices to make a warm,  mineral rich tonic. You can substitute any poultry species for this broth or use a combination. My top three are chicken, guinea and turkey.
