Heritage Black Turkey

Out of stock

19 left

The Heritage Black Turkey is one of the first to be developed from Native American stocks. In fact, it is believed to be the same breed the Pilgrims feasted on during their first Thanksgiving. This breed is well-suited for foraging, and is raised on a special pasture, on a small family farm in North Carolina.

This breed is slow-growing and tends to be heartier and more disease resistant for free range life than commercial breeds. After 20 weeks, the birds are approximately half the size of commercial birds at the same age. They are moved to open pasture at six weeks of age.

A maximum density requirement ensures birds are allowed more room in the houses than birds on industrial or organic farms.

Joyce Farms

Joyce Farms was started in 1962 by Alvin Joyce and is still a family-owned business today, with Alvin’s son, Ron Joyce, and his two sons, Ryan and Stuart, at the helm. They are located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and most of their partner farms are also located in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia. Joyce Farms has come a long way since the company was founded in 1962. They've gone from just selling chickens to raising the very best all-natural poultry, beef and game for the top chefs, artisanal butchers, and educated consumers across the U.S. 

Over the years, their knowledge of raising poultry grew. They wanted to supply the top culinary markets with the taste, texture and culinary advantages of superior birds, raised with no pesticides, animal by-products, hormones, growth stimulators or antibiotics EVER. Today they do just that. It’s what they call Naked Chicken, and it’s the finest all-natural domestic chicken for sale in America.

They use Regenerative Agriculture methods, including complex cover crops, planned rotational grazing, and no chemicals or tillage, to produce flavorful, nutritious proteins, while protecting animal welfare and restoring health to the soil.
