LARGE WHITE TURKEYS

Large White Turkeys are the fastest growing and most feed efficient turkeys. They can grow to tremendous size, however keeping them for longer than 18 weeks will decrease their feed efficiency.

Turkeys are very delicate and require careful attention to all details in the first few weeks of life. Turkeys can be processed as early as 10 weeks of age. It takes approximately 2.5 lbs. of feed per pound of live weight.

ARTISAN GOLD TURKEYS

The Artisan Gold is a rare breed that is smaller in size and slow growing. It has black feathers, unique colouring in the face and feet, long black legs, and a pronounced beak. It has natural tendencies such as roaming and roosting, and offers a robust, gamey taste that is exotically different from traditional turkeys.

MiniCLASSIC TURKEYS (White)

The MiniCLASSIC may be small in stature, but big in everything that counts. This special bird has been bred to develop and mature like natural bred turkeys of the past, and this little meatball is sure to impress.
For the farmer, this means that the Toms don’t grow as big and can be harvested more efficiently.
This bird can be harvested early without sacrificing meat quantity or quality.
It is a perfect complement to any specialized or free-range operation, and thrives under those conditions. For the consumer who wants a small, organic, locally-grown bird for a special occassion, they won’t find anything that compares to the MiniCLASSIC.
