We have been making quality a tradition since 1949. We take the time necessary to produce the best there is and we are proud of that.
We insist on providing our birds with the very best environment which allows them to grow naturally. Diestel turkeys enjoy the freedom of being slow grown in the clean Sierra Nevada foothills. From our feed mill, our turkeys are fed only the finest grains free of animal by products. This natural growing environment results in premium, tender, juicy birds with a superior meat yield – without the need for hormones or growth stimulants.
We feel that quality cannot be left to chance. We are one of the last small, family owned, fully integrated, premium quality turkey grower-processors in the United States. And we maintain control of every aspect of our operation from our feed mill to growing through processing and distribution.
So there lies the difference... you can be sure that our products are delivered farm fresh direct from us to you!
We offer a full line of natural and organic turkey and turkey products easily found in your fine grocer's meat, deli, cheese and prepared foods departments.
