All turkeys – wild turkeys and the broad-breasted white or the dozen or so “heritage” breeds grown domestically today – are the same species (Meleagris gallopavo). Consumers who want pasture-raised heritage breed turkeys are looking for birds that are well cared for, grow slowly, and have flavorful meat. We can support our small, local farmers who are doing their best to raise a good bird and sell it at a reasonable price.
Today, we’re on site with Crown S Ranch, Winthrop WA, and it’s spring. That means baby animals everywhere. Listen – you can hear miracles… Muffled peeps are a clue that something special is happening. And the sounds get louder and louder, until… there are chicks!
