Benefits of growing heritage turkeys and maintaining flocks
For the butcher and the chef Heritage turkeys have a deep, succulent flavour, and this is attributed to their naturally active behavior. They are natural breeders which is a sustainable for any farmer, since they not only breed, but brood and hatch their young and are naturally good mothers. This will replace the butchered stock, with future stock. By breeding heritage turkeys we can help prevent any further extinction which has been brought on by factory farming. Factory farmed turkeys are not sustainable and require artificial insemination. This procedure is disturbing. By preserving old fashioned heritage/standard breeds of turkey, we help preserve the integrity of the species, the earth and ecological system.
