Bronze Thanksgiving Turkey - Pastured & Regenerative
Delivered Fresh on Oct 6th, 2022.
Their 'one bad day' so-to-speak will be on Wednesday, October 5th, 2022, and they'll be available to pick up in time for Thanksgiving at the farm, or for delivery, between Woodstock, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, to East Toronto on Thursday October 6th. 2022.
40$ Deposit, Size, and Pricing
As we don't know exactly how large our turkeys will be, we're taking a $40 deposit and asking you to select your desired size. We'll send out an invoice for the balance on delivery.
Final price is based on $7.99/lb. less your 40$ deposit.
These are some of the only Bronze Turkeys raised outside on pasture available for sale in Ontario.
50 turkeys is the maximum number allowable to be raised without falling under the Turkey Farmers of Ontario (TFO) system. Once under the TFO, we would be required to raise them indoors for their entire life, which we're not interested in doing.
Your beautiful Bronze Turkeys have been raised outside for the last 11 weeks of their 14-week time with us. Their first three weeks are spent indoors, just long enough to grow their feathers so they can keep warm at night.
How we move them
Organic Feed and high protein pasture
They've been fed a full organic certified high protein feed to supplement their foraging from our fields of multi-species cover-crops, host to additional protein sources such as bugs, frogs, and snakes.
Instinct and Exercise
They have ample room to run, and they're provided a 'mobile tree house' for shelter and to meet their instinctive need to roost up high in a tree branch at night.
We design our husbandry process specifically to allow for them to express their entire range of instinctual behaviour.
Pastured, Mobile, Regenerative
They're moved to fresh pasture often, and while there, they've scratched, pecked, fertilized, foraged, and regenerated the soil ecosystem. We test the soil annually to track how it's improving and as a way to prove to others the process works and can be replicated.
Six for Food Banks
As we donate 11% of all our product to food banks in Ontario, we've reserved 6 of our 50 turkeys to help provide for an excellent and nutritious thanksgiving dinner. You will have contributed to dozens of thanksgiving meals for those who wouldn't otherwise have been able to enjoy one.
This year we're donating 3 turkeys to a Ukrainian church in Paris Ontario who are supporting 10 recently arrived Ukrainian families all with young children. We're also donating 3 turkeys to The Stop food bank in Toronto, who we've partnered with many times and who serve their local community.
Thanks for farming with us!
