For the true taste of Thanksgiving, try going wild.

But don’t expect a plump and pale breast—these unimproved, wild-breed turkeys offer very little in the way of white meat.

While a wild turkey may be small, it makes up for it with big taste. Dark meat lovers will rejoice at the rich, lean and intensely-flavored meat with gamey undertones.

Just like our other game meats, wild turkey requires a little more attention when roasting. Lean meats tend to dry out if over-cooked, which is why traditional recipes for these birds often involve barding and basting.

Since wild turkeys rarely grow over 10 pounds, they are ideal for smaller gatherings. Wild turkey is a perfect match for side dishes with assertive, seasonal flavors and your favorite medium to full-bodied red wine.

 
Note: Because our wild birds are hand-processed, you may find small pinfeathers in the flesh. They are easy to remove with needle nose pliers, tweezers, or your fingers.

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.
