What Do Free Range And Organically Grown Really Mean?



Naturally Raised, Naturally Better.

Our free range and certified organic husbandry practices are very similar. The primary difference is our certified organic flock is fed certified organic grain. Our flocks are primarily hens raised to a healthy 17-22 pounds. This ensures an excellent, even finish and produces a naturally self basting turkey with delicious flavouring.
