Our Pasture Raised Turkeys get lots of exercise outside, and are offered a natural and diverse diet. They are truly free-ranging and are able to be outside as much as they wish. Being outdoors is not only healthy for the birds but for us too. All that sunshine and fresh air causes the turkeys to develop higher amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids, natural antioxidants and Vitamins D3 & E making their meat a healthy choice for us too! A pastured turkey’s living conditions and natural diet makes them more flavorful and satisfying than conventionally raised turkeys.
Pastured Turkeys are also leaner than conventional turkeys and cook much faster. They can dry out easily because they do not get injected with any additional broth, brine, saline or water before packaging. They are also great for brining, which infuses the entire bird in moisture and flavor and helps to tenderize the meat.
All of our turkeys here at John Henry's are fed a mix of corn, oats, and peas, and bugs to keep them happy and healthy. All feed is GMO free. They are, locally raised, no hormones and no antibiotics. Our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides. All turkeys are free range and able to enjoy being outside as much as they wish.
