Pasture Raised Turkey

Not your typical Thanksgiving Turkey

At Pasture to Fork, we believe in exceptional food, and aspire to raise great-tasting holiday centerpieces that become a lasting memory long after the guests have left. That’s why we raise turkeys on pasture in nature’s template, for unparalleled flavor and texture.

Pastured turkey meat is lean yet tender, nutritious, and very flavorful. As is the case with other pasture-based meats, pasture-raised turkey is much higher in omega-3 fatty acids and has a better balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fats than factory-farmed turkey.

Wading through Turkey Labels

Shopping for a responsibly-raised turkey can be very confusing. The labels range from “free-range”, to “organic”, to “all-natural”, to “cage-free.” Very few grocery stores and supermarkets sell pasture-raised turkey, so you probably will not find that label there—though if you do, you can’t be sure the turkey really is pasture-raised unless you know the farm who produced it.

At Pasture to Fork, you can visit us anytime to see for yourself, or simply follow our blog to keep up with all the happenings on our farm. We are passionate about providing clean food and are always eager to answer any questions you have about our processes or philosophies.

Our Customers Say…

Your turkey was the best turkey we have ever had! Thank you! If you have any left that you have frozen I would like another one 14 to 20 pounds.”

— Nancy

Our Thanksgiving turkeys were amazing. We cooked two of the three. Marty used my father’s tried and true method on the Weber grill. They were delicious. Our family gathered from all across the country for several days. When the weekend was over, the leftovers were gone! Thank you for all you do to enhance our lives.”

What Size Turkey Should I Order?

For turkeys smaller than 16 pounds, estimate 1 pound per serving (this accounts for bone weight). For larger birds, a bit less is fine; because they have a higher meat-to-bone ratio. But if your goal is to have ample leftovers, aim for 1½-2 pounds per person. Also, if you want a turkey for Christmas, order a second bird and freeze it. We will not have fresh birds available for Christmas.
