Heritage breeds are traditional livestock breeds that were raised by farmers in the past, before the drastic reduction of breed variety caused by the rise of industrial agriculture. Heritage breeds were developed over time to emphasize traits that made them particularly well-adapted to local environmental conditions and often to produce multiple products such as wool, meat, and milk from the same animal. Heritage livestock breeds are also a valuable source of natural genetic diversity. Because of these traits and their ability to thrive on natural, local foods the meat from these animals have unique tastes. We believe flavorful meat comes from three things – the breed, the feed, and humane care that allows the animal to enjoy its natural behaviors and live a happy life..
Our turkeys and chickens thrive in a totally free range environment with continual access to grass, bugs, nuts, and seeds. They get to display their natural behaviors and live a true bird life.
Chickens have a lot more personality than people think they do. They form social bonds, cooperate to raise young, "barter", adopt orphans, and learn behaviors readily.Chicken Behavior
Watching Heritage turkeys living free range in a homestead farm environment is an experience that brings you back in time. When we started raising Heritage turkeys we never thought they would be so active or turn out to have such personalities.
Rotational grazing offers a lot of benefits such as improving the soil and reducing our need to burn diesel to mow orchards. Plus the sheep love it.
