Ferndale Market Pasture Raised Whole Turkey - 16-18 lb.
When Fern and husband Dale (Ferndale) started growing turkey on their Cannon Falls farm, they did it the only way they knew how — without shortcuts. 75 years and 3 generations later, that philosophy hasn’t changed. Rather than following the industrial turkey farming model, Peterson Farm stuck to their roots and followed the time-honored approach. Today, a compassionate approach to flock management and regenerative farming is still practiced in a dynamic dance between land steward farmer and mother nature rotating the turkeys with the seasons from green pasture grown to a free range turkey house. Because of this artful approach Ferndale produces slow growing turkeys with robust immune systems not needing any antibiotics or any other unnatural additives or interventions.
During the pasture growing season in the warmer months, Ferndale Market turkeys are raised on fresh pasture all day long and rotated to fresh pastures weekly. During the non-growing pasture and cold months the Ferndale turkeys live indoors in houses. When grow indoors, the turkeys are grown with constant assess to generous outdoor yards with access to grasses and fresh air. The outdoor yard connected to the houses exceed the square footage of the houses, so that the birds can live in a drastically lowered bird density environment. This generous space allocation to every turkey under care is key for the reduction of stress and the promotion of their immune system. (we humans can take some notes here). Whether grown on pasture or their winter houses, the turkeys always have access to feed, clean water and protection from their stewards the Peterson family.
Ferndale Turkey feed is custom blended. The Peterson family has taken an innovative approach by adding probiotics, yeast, and natural herbs to the feed so they can work in tandem with nature to maintain excellent health in our flocks. In addition, all the feeds contain an ideal balance of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. The goal is to incorporate age-old wisdom with innovative ideas to provide a well-rounded diet for the turkeys.
