Heritage for the Holidays

Heritage Breed Turkeys

All of Elmwood's poultry ranges about outdoors in the organic grass and clover pastures. Electric fencing on the perimeter protects the birds from predators, along with their natural instinct to roost up off the ground in the mobile poultry houses.

The Bourbon Red, Slate, Narragansett, and Royal Palm breed turkeys are on the Slow Food Ark of Taste -- a catalog of foods in danger of extinction. Only by promoting and eating foods on the Ark can we ensure they remain in production.

Have you ordered a locally raised, organic certified, heritage breed holiday turkey for your family meal from Elmwood Stock Farm? Contact the farm for pricing and pickup options.
