At Bright Ide Acres we raise heritage turkeys which retain more of their wild instincts than the typical "broad breasted" variety of turkey found in the grocery store. Heritage turkeys grow more slowly, are voracious foragers, and they can even fly! The flavor and texture on these birds is remarkable. Like our chickens, turkeys are raised on pasture where they can scratch and peck at healthy insects and eat fresh greens daily. Supplemental high-protein grains are provided for optimum nutrition.

Turkeys are available for the Thanksgiving holiday. Toms (~14-20 lbs) will be harvested in October, and hens (~9-12 lbs) will be harvested the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Advanced reservations are required; we sell out months before Thanksgiving.
