Most Americans know that the turkey is a native game bird, and that most would have thought it would have been a better national symbol than the bald eagle. In the wild, turkeys are fast runners and a difficult prize for hunters. Turkeys have remained spirited, spending their lives outdoors, exploring, climbing trees and socializing.
Whereas conventional supermarket turkeys can be tasteless and dry, heritage birds raised outdoors are juicy and succulent and taste the way a turkey is supposed to taste. Did You Know? Heritage Turkeys develop a thin layer of fat under the skin, (between 6-7 months of age) which actually makes them self basting.
