With Thanksgiving on the way, it’s time to decide what you’re putting on the table. Pasture-raised turkeys are the way to go! Not only are they sure to wow your friends and family with their delicious taste, they’re humanely raised, more nutritious, and you support the preservation of a breed.
Pasture-raised turkeys get to spend their days on pasture. This means frolicking under the sun, chowing down on natural foods such as grasses, grains, and bugs, and having room to stretch their wings. They only come in at night to have a safe, cool place to sleep and then they head right back out to pasture!
Preserving a breed
In all things, diversity is good. This is especially true in livestock and farming as well! By purchasing from farms that have a variety of breeds or raising a different type of turkey than the typical store-bought turkey (broad-breasted turkeys), you’re helping preserve this diversity now and for the future!
Grass-fed turkeys get to eat naturally: grasses, grains, bugs. All of this contributes to higher nutrition! Pasture-raised turkeys have higher levels of
- omega-3 fatty acids
- vitamin D
- vitamin E
- and many other nutrients and minerals!
You have to taste it to believe it—but the rich flavor is unbeatable. Ready to test it out yourself? Learn how to reserve a turkey!
