Some characteristics that distinguish these very rare Heritage turkeys from the standard broad breasted variety are slower growth, more proportionate breasts to legs, and the ability to naturally breed. There is a better balance between the dark meat and white meat, which means roasting a bird to perfection is much easier. The meat has a richer flavor.
Elmwood turkeys are raised the old-fashioned way outdoors on fresh grass and clover pastures with wholesome grains, resulting in moist, flavorful turkey. Not only are our Heirloom turkeys raised naturally, free from any synthetic inputs, flavor additives, or stimulants, but everything that every turkey eats is organically raised grain or grass pasture. Pasture-based farming has recognizable health benefits resulting in products with good saturated fats and high omega-3 fatty acids.
The use of certified organic grain means our turkeys are more expensive to produce, but you can take comfort knowing no GMO grain and no synthetic chemicals are used in your food.
Heritage turkeys will never be as large as broad breasted turkeys though they eat certified organic grain for 30 weeks resulting in the healthiest, most flavorful, best turkey you will ever taste.
Organic Certification ensures third party verification of our production practices and ultimately results in better health for you and your family this Thanksgiving season.
You can taste the difference and you will know you are serving the best!
