We’ve reached that pinnacle of American culinary tradition: the Thanksgiving Holiday. People nation wide will be wrasslin’ a 10-30 pound bird into their ovens with varying results. But customers fo the Double Brook Farm bird will have a much greater likelihood of success, because heritage birds are just plain awesome. They are pretty hard to mess up, although we can’t say it hasn’t been done (see: the great turkey fryer incident of 2010).
As adherents of the heritage turkey will know, the meat on these birds is a little darker and a whole lot more tasty and juicy than the average supermarket variety. In addition, OUR birds – all hatched, raised, pastured, and harvested right here – are fed a supplemental Non-GMO grain, grown for us by local NJ farmers. You can feel good about feeding a Double Brook turkey to your family.
They hatch out starting in mid-March.
Farmer Jon is the designated turkey nanny. He spends hours congregating with his charges.
As will all youth, they do go through an awkward teenage stage. Their legs and wingspan are a strange proportion to their bodies and they want to get away from all authority figures.
Eventually, they are old enough and smart enough to go out to the field on their own and forage.
But at this point they are so curious about humans that they will generally follow you around.
We harvest the birds the weekend before Thanksgiving so they are the freshest birds you can buy.
So, tell all your friends to order their birds before we sell out! START YOUR ORDER HERE
