About Our Pasture Raised Turkey
Offerings: whole turkeys (November & December only) + breasts, thighs, wings, and drumsticks (year round, as supplies last).
At Over the Moon, we are passionate about pasture-raised turkey production. We firmly believe in the importance of providing turkeys with a better life outdoors, embracing humane farming practices that not only enhance their well-being but also yield nutritional benefits. Join us as we delve into the world of pasture-raised turkeys, exploring the reasons why they thrive on pasture and how they contribute to a wholesome, sustainable food system.
A Life of Freedom and Happiness: Pasture-raised turkeys are given the opportunity to experience a life that aligns with their natural instincts. They have ample space to roam, forage, and express their social behaviors. By granting them access to open pastures, we provide a conducive environment for their overall well-being.
Ethical Farming Practices: Our commitment to humane farming practices means that our turkeys are raised with care and respect. They are not subjected to cramped indoor environments but are instead given the freedom to engage in natural behaviors, promoting their physical and mental health.
Nutritional Superiority: Pasture-raised turkeys offer nutritional advantages that set them apart. They enjoy a diverse diet of grass, insects, and seeds found in their natural habitat. As a result, their meat is leaner and boasts a higher content of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Additionally, their exposure to natural sunlight aids in the production of vitamin D, further enhancing the nutritional value.
Lower Stress Levels: Turkeys raised on pasture experience lower stress levels compared to their conventionally raised counterparts. They have the freedom to move, explore, and engage in natural behaviors. This stress reduction results in a more tender and flavorful meat.
Local Farming, Community Support: Choosing pasture-raised turkeys from local farmers contributes to the growth and sustainability of our community. By supporting local agriculture, we strengthen our regional food systems, reduce carbon emissions from transportation, and foster a sense of connection and trust between farmers and consumers.
Conclusion: Embracing pasture-raised turkey production is a vital step towards a more ethical and sustainable food system. The decision to support local farmers who prioritize humane practices and prioritize the well-being of turkeys rewards us with not only delicious, nutritious meat but also a deeper sense of connection to our food. Join us in savoring the flavors of pasture-raised turkeys, knowing that every bite represents a commitment to wholesome, ethical farming and a brighter future for all.
