To many shoppers, the words 'natural',‘free-range’, ‘local’ and ‘pasture raised’ can be confusing, and some even think they are interchangable. Perhaps you are a shopper who never even considers turkey outside of holiday dinners. Let us introduce you to a fresher, cleaner, healthier concept: pasture raised turkey.

A pasture-raised turkey is a bird that is allowed constant access to the outdoors, with plenty of fresh vegetation, sunshine and room to exercise. Moreover, it has not been given any chemicals (antibiotics, for example) of any kind. So, in other words, the turkey is free to do what turkeys naturally do and eat what turkeys naturally eat. 

Why does this matter?  

The mass-produced turkey you find in grocery stores is often inhumanely raised in extremely cramped, dirty buildings where the birds can barely move, much less exercise or forage. This creates stress in the turkeys that often leads to disease and the need for antibiotics. Stressed growing conditions also results in meat devoid of taste and health value, hence creating the need for chemicals to artificially moisten and flavor the meat.

Pasture raised turkeys, on the other hand, have plenty of room to roam and eat the foods nature intended. Thriving in a stress-free environment, this makes all the difference in the world in terms of their health and taste value to you. We think you'll agree that once you've tasted a pasture raised turkey, you'll never go back to supermarket birds again.
