We raise Mammoth Bronze and Artisan Gold Turkeys on pasture for the holiday season. They are raised by hand from chicks and live their whole lives in an apple orchard, foraging and eating apples with grain snacks. We raise a limited amount, and are in high demand. We will start our sign-ups Early November, and we WILL SELL OUT, so be sure to make it on the list! They will be available the week before Thanksgiving for pick up at the Farmer’s Market (Temescal- Sunday), or picked up at the farm with special arrangements. Since we harvest them a few weeks before Thanksgiving, they will be frozen. This does not in anyway affect their flavor or texture. Most (if not all) birds bought in a grocery store have been frozen and thawed to be sold in the refrigerated section. The difference between those birds and ours- is they lived a confined, unnatural, and rather unhappy life. Ours were raised by hand and lived out in a natural setting where they could forage on their own, eat the fruits of the orchard, fly around ('cause they can do that..) and live a generally natural stress-free life. We are a very small hand-doing-it-all farm, time prohibits us from being able to harvest them the few days before the holiday. ... $12.00/lb for 5-14.9lb birds $11.00/lb for 15lbs+ You can request a size and we will provide you with a turkey of similar weight...as we cannot guarantee a specific weight. ... You will be able to pick them up from us: Temescal Farmers Market..........Sunday Nov 21st Berkeley Farmers Market.............Saturday Nov 20th Farm pick-up and local delivery ($20 fee for delivery) can be arranged.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO TO GUARANTEE YOUR TURKEY: Tell us at the farmers market, or email us for availability (contact page) and then : 1. Specify your requested weight, we will get as close to it as we can. Sizes are first come, first serve. 2. Specify where you will pick-up your turkey,- at the farmers market, or via special arrangement. 3. Pay $50 deposit, this is your GUARANTEE- either as: mail-in check; in person at the farmers market; online via venmo or square.
*Even if you don't get a turkey from us- Try to always get your meat/poultry from a farmer you know. Industrial Ag. has a lot of pretty sounding labels that don't really mean what they say...or mean a good natural life for those animals. Talk to the farmers at your local farmer's market about their practices. Not all meat, eggs, and dairy are raised the same...*
