Thanksgiving Turkeys 2020
We are now taking orders for our free range Certified Organic and BCSPCA Humane Certified Thanksgiving turkeys.
We raise an Orlopp Bronze Turkey. This is a Heritage Breed turkey that was developed by the Orlopp family back in 1935. Orlopp Bronze turkeys have a beautiful natural black feathering and thrive when raised outside. Our Thanksgiving turkeys are moved outside as soon as they are old enough and moved every day onto the fresh grass so the turkeys can eat the grass, bugs and grubs. The turkeys are given lots of room to move around and express their natural behaviours. The meat is a very light caramel color and boasts a very rich complex flavor. They are “black-feathered” birds which will cause some of the pin feather holes on the skin to look like little ink spots.
In addition to being able to pre-order a whole turkey, this year we are also offering the option to reserve a fresh turkey breast or a turkey thigh. Our turkey breast is a boneless turkey breast that has the skin on, our turkey thigh is a bone-in, skin-on turkey thigh. We have added these options for this year as many people may be looking at smaller gatherings and we wanted to give you an option other than a whole turkey.
There are three easy ways to order your whole turkey, turkey breast roast or turkey thigh:
- Online through our website https://sunworksfarm.com/collections/turkey
