Description

Our wild turkeys are the real deal, descended from the same breed that has long roamed the American woodlands. Raised in upstate New York in nearly wild conditions, these turkeys forage on native grasses, insects, seeds and grains, supplemented by alfalfa, hay, and barley. Since wild turkeys rarely grow over 10 pounds they are ideal for smaller gatherings. These unimproved, wild breed turkeys offer less breast meat than their domesticated cousins, but make up for it with lean, dark, flavorful – and slightly gamey - meat.

*Servings based on 1.5 pounds per person.

Also Available:
Organic Turkeys and Heritage Turkeys

Ordering your Thanksgiving turkey: We highly recommend you plan ahead and pre-order your holiday bird as early as possible, as we often sell out.

Still need help deciding which holiday bird to buy? Check out Best Birds for the Holidays for a quick rundown of each of our turkeys, plus goose and capon, all on one convenient page.

Cooking your D'Artagnan turkey:  Keep in mind that depending on several factors, including: size of bird, oven calibration, type of cookware used, recipe variations, and method of cooking, time and temperature will vary. We recommend use of a meat thermometer, instant-read or digital, when gauging doneness. Click here for Roasted Holiday Turkey Cooking Guide.

How to order the right size turkey: We recommend that you estimate 1-1.25 pounds per person to determine the size of turkey you will need. (For example, an 8-10 pound turkey will yield 6-8 servings). If you would like to have leftovers, then plan on at least 1.5 pounds per person.
