Raising Turkeys

Are You Raising Turkeys On A Small Scale?

Raising turkeys takes planning, but can be very rewarding.

Without small flock turkey farming, more breeds would become extinct, and the option to know what natural turkeys were like in the past could be lost to all of us forever.

The breeds, the feed, the care, and the freedom in raising them makes these birds special. And we know that it is much more expensive and demanding to raise turkeys naturally and ethically on a small scale.

If you are raising these birds for the first time, or again after several years, you have stories and pictures. We know. We have talked to some of you and heard about your trials and triumphs, and we have seen some of your pictures.
