Frantzen's Scenic Acres is owned and operated by Dale and Cheryl Frantzen with the help of their 3 adult children - Denyse, Sarah and Adam. The farm was purchased in the mid-1940s by Dale's parents, with Dale & Cheryl keeping the farm in the family.
Unknowingly, Dale was using grass-fed farming practices well before others were doing so. In the early 1980s, after a visit to Cheryl's grandparents in Vermont where they raised their own beef on their 280 acre dairy farm, Dale decided he could raise his own beef too because the roast that Cheryl's grandmother had cooked was so flavorful and tender. And, so it began. The beef were raised on grass to cut down on expenses. Unfortunately, we discontinued raising our own beef in the 1990s because of time constraints with the children's extracurricular activities.<

Heritage breed turkeys grow slower and have a much better turkey flavor. In a 2008 turkey taste testing 7 heritage breeds all bested the commercial butterball turkey! A 2008 customer did a side-by-side taste testing with Frantzen's heritage breed turkey and a commercial turkey. The heritage breed won, hand's down, in every aspect!
