Pasture Raised Turkeys
| Thanksgiving Season |
We have been raising pasture raised turkey for over 10 years and love helping furnish your Thanksgiving table with the best bird! We offer turkeys in three sizes Small (10-12 lbs), Med (12-15 lbs) and Large (15+ lbs) (We cannot guarantee a size as there are many conditions that can affect the growth of a bird, we aim to have ample choices available.) We will hold a turkey for you with a $50 deposit (which will be deducted from your final cost). Pick up is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, they will be fresh not frozen. We will inform you of the exact times via email prior to pick up.
Our Thanksgiving turkey is raised much the same as the pasture raised chickens. They are fed only Non GMO, organic and soy free feed and raised on organic pastures. They are shipped here from a local hatchery at one day old and we take care of them like their mothers would. Providing shelter, heat, water, feed and dry bedding until they have enough feathers to go outside and live on pasture. We take great care in keeping our birds healthy and living a natural life by grazing our farm and free ranging. We are able to do so with the help of our amazing guardian dogs, Ruthy and Buster, who keep the foxes and other predators away from them.
Day Spring Farm on the Emeril Green Show
| October 2008 |
Day Spring Farm was featured on Emeril Lagasse’s ‘Emeril Green’ show for the Thanksgiving special.
The episode highlighted the uniqueness of the Baker’s pasture based farm and their heritage turkeys. Jessie Baker and Chef Emeril roasted two of the turkeys together during the filming at Whole Foods in Fair Lakes. The film crew later came and spent the day filming the Bakers at their farm, doing their chores and enjoying their animals.
