We have raised tuscaurora (bourbon red), blue slate, and Narragansett (heritage) turkeys. Tuscauroras are a very special breed of
turkey that is known for it's smaller size (typically around 15 pounds when mature) and
gourmet meat qualities. It is also a wonderful pet turkey that is both hardy and
entertaining. They are vocal birds that love to get into everything and explore
We feed our turkeys a healthy premium diet custom-mixed here at the farm. We
adjust the ration as needed but it typically contains high-quality whole ingredients such
as flax seed, black oil sunflower seeds (BOSS), locally grown barley and oats, sea salt,
salmon meat, fat, and bone meal, kelp meal, brewer's yeast, rice bran, cracked corn,
alfalfa, brome, and timothy. They always have free-choice access to fresh, clean
water and grit. Although they are provided with a shelter and fenced yard, they
often free range at will, always staying on our property and under our care.
Although rare, if any turkey should become ill, it is isolated and treated until it is
healthy again. If it must be administered medication, it's eggs and meat will not be
included in our sales supply. Thus our turkey eggs and meat are always free
of hormones, antibiotics, and additives.
We are currently planning to restart our flock after our relocation to Juneau. Please check back frequently for updates.
