December 3, 2019: It was a successful Harvest Day and the turkeys were wonderfully delicious! A very special thank you to all our friends, family and returning customers who came out for the Harvest Party and shared with not only some of the dirty work; but the good times, good food and good drink (much of it the grown up kind)!
turkeys are raised from day old poults. They are truly free range with
access to our good Virginia pastures that provide them all sorts of
juicy bugs and vegetation to feed on during the day. They have access
to supplemental feed but have found that the turks end up being rather
good at providing for themselves by clipping the grass and hunting bugs.
All that grazing and bug eating contributes to our turkeys’ good
flavor, juiciness and overall health. Consequently, our turkeys (as all
other animals raised here on the farm) are hormone and antibiotic free.
I know it sounds odd to say but they taste like turkeys rather than a
turkey shaped protein on the Thanksgiving Day menu.
Our turkeys are processed
and readied for your oven the day or two before Thanksgiving as we
celebrate our Turkey Harvest Fest. They are fresh as fresh can get and
not frozen. Join us for hot cider, and other beverages and goodies
around the fire pit when you pick up your bird. Bring the kids and take
some time to walk about the farm and see the other animals. Once you
have had a fresh pasture raised turkey you will never go back to a
frozen supermarket special!
