Pasture Raised

Pasture Raised:

Diestel Pasture Raised turkeys were the first turkeys to obtain the highest GAP rating of 5+! These birds are raised entirely on green, irrigated pastures (compliments of Diestel compost and reclaimed water) and are a part of our holistic multi-species rotational grazing program. We are bringing traditional methods of polyculture farming back as we continuously rotate these turkeys with our chickens, goats, sheep, and hogs. This traditional style of farming ensures we replenish the soil nutrients by raising diverse species on the land. And of course, these birds are never given antibiotics or growth stimulants. Diestel Pasture Raised turkeys are slow-grown and 100% vegetarian/ forage-fed. They are vibrantly healthy, the way nature intended! Please reference our simple roasting instructions for the best results when cooking our Pasture Raised turkeys.

Our Pasture Raised turkeys are fed a wholesome low-fat vegetarian diet of quality grains and soybeans milled on the Diestel ranch and, as always, completely free of growth stimulants and hormones.
