Meet My Heritage Turkey

LINK

Do you know where you turkey that are having this Thanksgiving came from? No - I don't mean your local supermarket. I mean do you know where and how it was raised? Do you know what breed of turkey you will be chowing down on when you sit down with the family? Does the money you spend on your feast support bio-diversity and promote humane farming practices?

Today my turkey arrived from Heritage Foods USA, and I am already hungry.



The piece of paper that came with the star of my feast tells me that I will be smoking an American Bronze Turkey raised by Larry and Madonna Sorell of Lazy S Farms in Glasco, Kansas. One startiling thing about them is that they are the parents of thirteen boys and one girl! Wow. At the Heritage Foods USA site you can learn more about Larry and Madonna Sorrell.

Heritage Turkeys

LINK

I saw this article at CNN.com about Heritage Turkeys.

Since I am planning on smoking a turkey and a ham for thanksgiving on my Weber Bullet, I have been looking for the best bird I can find. Though I had heard of heirloom seeds, I honestly had never heard of Heritage Meats.

I can hardly wait.

Organic Beef

LINK

I found this "Introduction to Organic Beef" on a Canadian government website. Here is a great quote:

"Although successful organic grain farming is not dependent on the inclusion of livestock, having a mixed operation does complement the holistic approach of organic agriculture, especially through nutrient recycling."

Valley Famers

LINK

I am located in Astoria, Queens, NYC and I have found it difficult to find good beef in particular for my BBQ needs. I have begun to search for local farmers in NY state that I can get fresh, organic, grass-feed beef.

In my search so far, I have come across Valley Farmers. They look like they could fit the bill. I will give them a call on Monday and see what they can do for me. I will let you know how it goes.

Other organic farms that I have found on the web that might be relevant:

Simply Grazin' Organic Farms
