Turkey: From Our Pastures to Your Table

“Pasture raised turkey” is more than a label – it’s a commitment to a way of farming that puts taste, health, quality, and the life of the animal first.

Pasture raised turkeys are different because the birds continually move through green grass and sunshine. It’s more than “access.” Pastured turkeys are raised on a living environment for most of their life.

“Outdoor access” and “free range” do not describe pasture raised turkey; “Outdoor access” and “free range” are words used by the conventional poultry industry to make you think you’re buying something different while they serve you more of the same. It’s classic bait and switch.

Pasture raised  turkeys live a majority of their lives on fresh, rooted-in soil pasture. This is accomplished through movable shelters, called coops— not in a barn that only provides access to pasture. Living on fresh green grass makes pasture raised different than every other label, including free range, cage-free, organic, all-natural, and antibiotic free.

If you want the pasture raised turkey difference, you have to shop different.

Rosanna’s Turkey Tips

Ready to serve your family delicious and nutritious pasture-raised Turkey?

Our turkey tips are simple:

  1. Get a good turkey.
  2. Do not overcook your good turkey.

Choosing a turkey is the single most important thing besides time and temperature. I always cringe when I hear people say “Turkey is so tasteless!” and think “Well, you obviously haven’t eaten a Bauman turkey!”

It’s a shame to dread the turkey at the Thanksgiving table, so here’s some tips to fix that…

Tales of Thanksgivings Past

Our family looks forward to Thanksgiving as much as Christmas. This is because Thanksgiving symbolizes so many things.

Thanksgiving usually coincides with the last of our harvest season, when the crops have all been brought in, so it is a bit of a harvest celebration for us, as we give thanks for the bounty and blessings that were reaped this year.

Thanksgiving marks the beginning of our farm’s “winter break”, when we have fewer animals to care for due to the cold weather. After spending five solid days dressing nearly 1,100 turkeys, we are extra thankful for a day of rest. I calculated that I lifted 25,000 pounds of turkey with my left hand and I counted 19 cuts and one blister on my hands. It is definitely time for a break.

Pastured raised is a better farming system for everyone.
