Standard Bronze Turkey

 The Standard Bronze Turkey has been the most popular turkey variety for most of American history. It originated from crosses between the domestic turkeys brought by European colonists to the Americas and the eastern wild turkeys they found upon their arrival. The hybrid vigor of this cross resulted in larger and more vigorous turkey stocks than European birds. These birds were also much tamer than wild turkeys. The coppery, bronze-colored metallic sheen, which gives the variety its name, was part of the inheritance from its wild ancestors. 

The Bronze variety is stately and imposing in appearance. The standard weight for young toms is 25 pounds and 16 pounds for young hens. The Heritage (Standard) Bronze is a long living, slow growing (36 weeks to maturity) turkey that is able to breed naturally and is very good at foraging. 

Artisan Gold Turkey

The Artisan Gold Turkey is a rare breed that is small in size and slow growing. The "Artisan Gold," is a French bird with Black Spanish heritage and reminiscent of a more traditional era, with old-world traditions and artisan values. This breed has been selected for centuries based on French gastronomy. This ensures a distinct taste, juicy texture and uncompromised quality. The Artisan thrives in a free-range environment where it can express natural tendencies such as roaming and roosting. 

The Artisan Gold Turkey offers a robust taste that is exotically different from traditional turkeys currently in the market. With its unique and uncommon characteristics, the Artisan is a standout breed for any dinner table.

Orlopp Bronze Turkey

The Orlopp Bronze is a broad-breasted turkey, with excellent conformation and high meat quality due to its natural fat layering. Underneath its beautiful bronze feathers is an efficient, robust turkey.  

Broad Breasted White Turkey

The Broad Breasted White is commercially the most widely used breed of domesticated turkey. These birds have shorter breast bones and larger breasts, sometimes rendering them unable to breed without human assistance.  This turkey breed was developed by crossing Hollands and Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys. The resulting bird grew faster, larger, and had a cleaner looking carcass. 

It’s no secret why these turkeys are the leading breed for the commercial meat industry. On top of their fast rate of growth (12 to 14 weeks as opposed to heritage breed turkeys at 26-30 weeks), Broad Breasted Whites produce more meat than any other turkey breed. They also produce a large amount of sought after breast meat, a well-loved favorite of many people. Often the tom turkeys can weigh up to 40 pounds! The hens typically weigh less, weighing around 25-30 pounds. 

Freedom Ranger

The Freedom Ranger brand of broiler chicks are a great alternative to fast-growing white broiler chicks or slow-growing heritage breeds. Freedom Ranger chicks grow at a moderate rate, reaching their peak weight of 5-6 lbs in 9 to 11 weeks. These active, robust chicks are suitable for free range, foraging and pasture environments and produce tender, succulent meat with more yellow omega 3 fat and less saturated fat than fast growing breeds.

Our Freedom Ranger chickens are an active breed and thrive when allowed to free range, scratch and dust bathe in natural sunlight.

         Cornish Rocks

The crossing of purebred Cornish and White Rock hens produces this fine broiler. Cornish Cross is the most popular, fastest and most efficient meat chicken on the market. They have large breasts, thigh and leg proportions. Their white feathers and yellow skin make for clean processing. 

We also grow the meat industry standard, Cornish Rock Variety. These birds are fast growing, flavorful, juicy and tender. The Cornish Rocks range in size from 5 to 7 pounds, in 6 to 8 weeks.

Kosher King Chicken

The Kosher King chicken is a champion among meat producers, with a number of benefits over standard broilers. These birds are robust, active, and have arguably some of the most delicious and flavorful meat available. Believe it or not, the dark meat sections of this bird are light to white in color, and very very juicy. Kosher King Chickens are hybrid birds that are great alternatives to the Cornish Cross as meat birds. They have a more natural growth rate, taking 11-12 weeks,  and are vigorous and healthy foragers.  The Kosher Kings - sometimes referred to as Silver Kings - originated from a mix of heritage breeds, including Barred Rocks and Sussex Chickens. 

This particular breed has been voted the farms' most flavorful chicken. It is absolutely the best roasting whole bird. 

Pekin Ducks

The Pekin duck breed has been domesticated for more than 2,000 years. While the exact origin of the breed still often sparks dispute among historians, Pekin ducks were most likely developed in Southeast Asia. The breed may have been created in China and then exported to England around 1872.  The Pekin or White Pekin is an American breed of domestic duck, raised primarily for meat. It derives from birds brought to the United States from China in the nineteenth century.

They provide a nice beefy quality flavor, with a moist soft texture.  Our ducks are sold by request. They can be requested fresh or frozen, upon availability. They range in sizes from 5 to 9 pounds, but typically are around 6 to 7.5 pounds at the time of butchering. 

Emden Geese

The Emden Goose is a heritage breed goose that is raisedfor meat. They grow fast and large reaching their mature weights at 20 weeks. The Emden was introduced to America in 1821. They are popular to show, and to eat. They are said to have very delicious meat. Ganders will reach 26 lbs.  This bird will be raised in a small flock, and will be available by special order only.

New This Year!

Sasso Chickens

Sasso Chickens are quality Broilers with a Country-Chicken Feel

Some markets are looking for more country chicken and less of the butterball look. Sasso Chickens are another option that fits somewhere between the Jackie and the Freedom Ranger. They reach market weight a few days slower than the Freedom Ranger, are heavy-bodied, with long keels and lighter, speckled feathers.

This is our first year trying these birds. We will start with one batch. If they prove to be flavorful and of the high quality we demand of our poultry, then we will raise another batch.
