How do I cook a pastured turkey?
Pasture Raised Turkeys
Turkey Time is our favorite time of year at the farm. These birds have quickly become a favorite here at Walnut Creek.
Since 2018, we have been raising Thanksgiving Turkeys for the local community.
For Thanksgiving 2020, we will be raising more turkeys than ever before. We had an overwhelming response to our turkeys, so we will expand to accommodate more of our customers. Just like our chickens, our turkeys are raised and exist solely on pasture. They forage on plants and insects and have lots of room to roam. We supplement with a non-GMO feed from Ernst Grain & Livestock. This feed is locally grown and sourced in nearby Clearspring, MD.
We understand that your holiday plans seem so far off. The holidays may look a little different this year and your plans may been still very unknown, given all that is going on in the world right now. But, if you think you will be hosting a Thanksgiving Meal and can do so, please consider supporting a local, Loudoun County-grown turkey.
By making a deposit now, you are doing more than "holding your spot". Your money will go to purchasing the high quality, locally sourced non-GMO feed with which we supplement our turkeys. We are growing a high quality product. A lot of time and care goes into raising turkeys. We keep our customers in mind as we raise these birds as close to their natural environment as safety will allow.
