About the birds:
Our turkeys are Broad-Breasted Bronzes that were purchased as chicks from Hoover Hatchery in Rudd. Once the birds were old enough, they have their own dedicated pasture area and allowed to day-range. They came inside at night to a room in a permanent structure on our farm to protect them from predators. After the first few days, turkeys are able to walk themselves into their room at night and the farmers just need to close them in to protect them. If you thought turkeys were dumb, you might want to read this research we discovered by Ima Turkey.
Jake, will gladly tell you about some of the things he enjoyed at the Genuine Faux Farm.
The birds were taken to Martzahn's farm in Greene for processing, where they do exemplary work cleaning them for your use. Our birds were very active, thus the quality of the dark meat far exceeds what you will find with most birds raised in confinement or with limited pasture. Our birds tend to be leaner, so we recommend you cook your birds at lower temperatures for a slightly longer period of time for best results.
Persons who have purchased our turkeys have given excellent reviews for the taste and quality. We have had customers who have successfully brined, smoked, grilled, deep fat fried and roasted birds we have provided.
If you would like to know more about the names we give to our turkeys at the various stages of their lives, you might enjoy reading Time to Talk Turkey.
How pickup works
The times listed for pickup are also our delivery times for our Fall Vegetable share delivery. We deliver eggs at that time and will also be selling/delivering chickens. We will work as quickly and efficiently as we are able to get each and every person what they need. Your patience is appreciated if there are a number of people waiting for our attention.
Remember, we can't help you if you don't ask. So, if there is something you need, please let us know. Also, feel free to remind us if you think we are forgetting something.
