From Cook’s Illustrated:
“This turkey was ‘super tender and juicy,’ with white meat ‘so rich in flavor that it tastes like dark meat.’
“The dark meat was even more tender and flavorful, prompting one taster to ask, ‘Is this dark turkey or pulled pork? So fall-apart tender that it’s almost shredding itself.’
“‘Rich without gamy notes,’ the meat had a ‘texture like velvet.’”
Heritage turkey has a longer, thinner shape than a broad-breasted turkey, resulting in more equal dark meat to light meat ratio. The rich turkey flavor creates a special meal.
You are purchasing a turkey that has been free ranging—kept outdoors on grass pasture and fed wholesome, organic grains, resulting in moist, flavorful turkey without the use of synthetic inputs, flavor additives or stimulants. The use of certified-organic grain along with the time and care it takes to raise turkeys outdoors on pasture means our turkeys are more expensive to produce, but you can take comfort knowing no antibiotics, no GMO grains and no synthetic chemicals are used to produce your food. USDA organic certification ensures third-party verification of our production practices and ultimately results in better health for you, your family and all the guests around the table.
