We LOVE turkeys, in case you hadn't already guessed that from our farm name. While our turkeys do get some GMO- and soy-free grain, they are expert foragers, who help to fertilize our farm's soil and clean up any produce that's too damaged or overripe to sell. It's a theme here, at Gobble-Berry: the more wild the diet is, the more nutrient dense the food is! By the time a turkey is ready for harvest it is a fully mature bird, which translates into richer flavor, higher content of healthy fats, and more mineral-rich bones - a big bonus for those who have discovered the super food that bone broths can be!
Our turkeys are a cross between the heritage Bourbon Red breed, and a white broad-breasted turkey, which is the type most often found in stores. While we have not seen this combination of breeds before, we are excited to see the results this Fall! The flavor profile of heritage breed turkeys is more full of depth than your average bird, and our hope is that this mixed breed will be a match made in heaven. You can expect our turkey to be a little smaller than one from the store, but you will never taste any as delicious as a Gobble-Berry turkey!
We take enormous pride in the quality of our eggs. When allowed to roam free in the wild, the omnivorous chicken consumes as many wild greens, grains, legumes, insects, and meats as she can find. This is the "chicken-ness of the chicken," and the result is nutrition that is visible in the plump, dark orange yolks and sturdy whites of our free-range chicken eggs.
At Gobble-Berry, our flock of mixed-breed hens is allowed to express the true nature of the chicken. At any given moment, you can find our chickens keeping themselves busy foraging for greens and insects, gobbling up fallen berries and excess produce, or sunning themselves after a dust bath - one of their favorite past-times.
While our poultry do receive a bit of supplemental grain, we are committed to remaining soy- and GMO-free in everything we do.
