Get ready for a whole new, unique turkey experience!
Raised with care and expertise by the Moore Family in Granite Bay, CA. We’re extremely excited to have found this authentic Heritage breed truly pasture-raised turkey producer right here in California!
“The day we tasted the Bourbon Red for Thanksgiving, we were amazed by the delicious full flavor, the tender texture and the moistness of the breast meat. In taste test after taste test, the Heritage Birds easily win in all categories over conventional birds found in the supermarket. The Bourbon Red in particular is often chosen as the best tasting bird in numerous cook-offs.”

What Makes These Birds Different: Even organic, natural, range-free and 4-H programs use commercial turkey breed varieties which have large breast meat and can weigh as much as 40lbs in as little as 14 weeks. This is the turkey of our time, but not the turkey of 50 years ago. The modern commercial turkey is a product of commercial demand. The birds cannot breed on their own and must depend on artificial insemination and incubator hatcheries. They are generally raised in large warehouse buildings with little space to roam; and exposure to the outdoors or a natural life is limited. Their lifespan is short, lasting under 9 months with many fatalities due to stroke, cancer, kidney failure and heart disease.
Heritage turkeys are unique in their structure and their lives. Both the Bourbon Red and the Narragansett are very old heritage breeds and are on the Livestock Conservancy’s “WATCH” List. These amazing birds are beautiful, breed naturally, brood their own clutches of eggs and are careful mothers that cherish and protect their young. They are excellent foragers and are extremely gentle and kind. They are an important part in sustainable farming practices and species preservation. They live long, productive, healthy lives lasting anywhere from 5-12 years depending on the breed and gender. They can fly and roost and live with their all of their instincts to the fullest. Our turkeys eat a natural diet filled with grasses, fresh fruit, melons, greens and barley. They are much slower to mature, taking nearly 7 months, but will bring a delight to your table without being injected, brined, deep fried or full of salted nitrate solutions.
Our small flock of birds range in size from 7-18 lbs and sell out quickly. Heritage turkeys have incredible flavor and are more even in the amount of dark and white meat. We have two of the finest breeds to choose from, both the top two in taste tests across the country.
