Where do the turkeys come from?
We source our turkeys from Oink and Gobble Farm in Interlaken, New York, just north of Ithaca.
They are protected in the fields in a large movable “pen” which is rotated daily over fresh pasture. The pen is several thousand square feet and large enough that the birds have plenty of room to forage in the grass and not be cramped on top of each other. Inside that pen they also have an aluminum frame structure with a tarp fastened over it for shelter. This structure is moved daily along with the pen thus providing the birds with shelter from inclement weather and for warmth if needed. Along with their natural foraging, the turkeys are fed a natural feed that includes non-GMO corn and non-GMO roasted soybeans.
Why where you get your turkey from matters
Americans eat more than 45 million turkeys every Thanksgiving–that’s one-sixth of all the turkeys eaten over the whole year.
Most of those turkeys are raised and slaughtered in a factory farm setting, which can mean they spend their lives in overcrowded pens where sickness can run rampant. To counter that, they’re given antibiotics that get passed to the people who eat them. Hormones are also used to encourage the birds to grow bigger so they can sell more turkey faster.
We strive to offer natural, sustainable alternatives for traditional holiday meals. We believe that the norm for industrial food systems shouldn’t keep people from natural, sustainably- and ethically-raised meat choices.
Make a difference
You can help change how Americans purchase turkeys for the holiday by supporting the sustainable, local food system we have right here in the western New York region. It’s not only a responsible and ethical choice, it’s also a more delicious option.
