Lots of folks have been asking about our (their) turkeys. It must be coming to that time of year when summer starts to end, fall is almost here, and thoughts of Thanksgiving start emerging from deep within.
This year we decided to raise more heritage breeds and scale back on the conventional giant whites. This decision was in part due to customer demand, but also due to the ability of the heritage turkeys to free-range. The giant whites are allowed pasture space, yet they seldom wander far. The heritage turkeys, on the other hand, roam far and wide throughout the farmyard. They even find their way atop the farmhouse, from time to time.
Here are some Narragansett and a Bronze "picking" raspberries.
In the distance are some pastured turkeys. The whites never leave the fenced in area, while the heritage turkeys rarely stay within.
And there you have it...Your turkeys!
