Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Pastured Thanksgiving Turkey

October 27, 2022

If you're like most of our customers, you're more thoughtful than the average bear about what your family eats. You've read stuff...you've seen stuff...you know stuff. So, we thought we'd slide out of the way and let you do the talking in this Thanksgiving Top 5!

...according to our customers


#5 Animal Welfare

Our customers say...

πŸ¦ƒ "I like animals being treated well."

πŸ¦ƒ "It's a blessing to know our food is in good hands from start to finish."

πŸ¦ƒ "We came to you because we learned about commercially operated factory farms and the way animals suffer."

πŸ¦ƒ "We are forever thankful for the way you treat the earth and the animals."

πŸ¦ƒ "We believe animals need to be pasture-raised and humanely treated and slaughtered."

πŸ¦ƒ "I was a vegetarian for 6 years for the reason of not liking how meat was mass produced. The only reason I started eating meat again was because of more humane and sustainable options like yours."

πŸ¦ƒ "Ethically, I disagree with factory farming and I wish we could transition our meat system away from it."


#4 Healthier Meat

Our customers say...

🩺 "I loved that I could make broth afterwards with clean grass-fed bones."

🩺 "We buy from you because grocery store meats just aren't acceptable to us. Too many pesticides/herbicides that we try to avoid."  

🩺 "If health is what we want, it only makes sense to eat meat from the very healthiest of animals. That is what you provide."

🩺 "I learned about the better nutrient profiles of grassfed meats and made the switch."

🩺 "Nourishing my body in better ways is a value I hold."

🩺 "I just prefer to have food that is free of additives, and from animals without hormones in their food."

🩺 "We always try to buy the most natural, non-GMO, grass-fed, pasture-raised meats we can find."

🩺 "The COVID-19 pandemic made me realize how special health is and how important what goes in our bodies is."


#3 Top Quality

Our customers say...

βœ”οΈ"There was A LOT of meat on this turkey. My parents typically purchase at a grocery store - those turkeys don’t have nearly as much meat."

βœ”οΈ"Way better texture than a Butterball."

βœ”οΈ"Fed us for multiple meals over multiple days, and kept it's flavor. Store bought would lose flavor by day 2."

βœ”οΈ"Omg, it was worth the money."

βœ”οΈ"5 stars."

βœ”οΈ"Best bird I ever roasted."

βœ”οΈ"More like meat from 30-40 years ago instead of the tasteless meat in the grocery stores now."

βœ”οΈ"Top quality."

βœ”οΈ"No other meat compares."

βœ”οΈ"Hands down the best turkey our family has ever had."
