Heritage Turkeys

An iconic North American symbol, turkeys are naturally inquisitive birds; they can often be found investigating their surroundings and are active foragers who make a circuit of their world each day enjoying grass and bugs alike.

Heritage Turkeys are reproduced and genetically maintained through natural mating, have a long productive life span, and slow growth rate. Known for their exceptional flavour and texture, they grow best and thrive in sustainable agricultural systems, but as recently as 1997 were in danger of extinction. Today, thanks to the efforts of breeders, producers and consumers, the Heritage Turkey’s numbers are on the rise. We all need to eat more Heritage birds in order to save them.
