Our Broad Breasted White Turkeys come in March and also in late June. It takes 16 to 18 weeks to grow turkeys for Thanksgiving.
We raise 125 for Thanksgiving.
Bourbons (Heritage breed) : We will be raising a limited amount of Bourbon Turkeys in 2015.
Bourbon Red Turkeys are a heritage breed. They are a beautiful bird and their taste is truly wonderful. They are rated #1 in taste on several different websites. Because they are a heritage breed and slow growing it takes 26-28 weeks to raise them.
Our baby bourbons (poults) will arrive the last week in March. Will then spend 7 weeks in the brooder before they go outside in our hoop houses. They are great foragers and love to eat grass!
Our Bourbons will be between 7 and 14 lbs for Thanksgiving.
Please order early because of our limited supply of Bourbons
