Our turkeys are grown slowly as poults and need much more attention and care in their early days than chicks. The poults stay in the warm barn for longer than chicks, but once they grow into adult birds they love to be outside even more than the chickens do, no matter the weather.
Our turkeys eat a similar feed to the chickens, but with a uniquely formulated mineral suplement. Like all our feed, it is free of soy, animal by-products, medications, and hormones. It is a farm-ground feed of barley, wheat, green peas, some alfalfa. Our butcher is Lakeland Poultry Processors in St. Paul, where they operate with a strong commitment to food safety and quality.
