Tender and juicy with real old-fashioned flavor
Our Heidi's Hens® turkeys enjoy the freedom of being raised in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Foothills where they are raised almost twice as long as commodity-raised turkeys, which allows them to develop flavor naturally.
Our Heidi's Hens® turkeys provide excellent value with more meat, less fat and less water than commodity turkeys.
Family ranch since 1949
All of our turkeys are grown sustainably and humanely, according to our family's strict standards. We are proud to be family owned and operated since 1949. We are one of the last small, family-owned turkey grower-processors in the United States.
Certified organic by Oregon Tilth
Since the passage of the Organic Foods Act in 1990, Tim Diestel has testified at the National Organic Standards hearings to help define the requirements set forth for the organic turkey. In 1999 the USDA completed their phase of the Organic Foods Act and approved the use of the term “organic” on labels of USDA inspected poultry.
Heidi’s Hens® are grown and certified organic by Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO). The purpose of organic certification is to ensure that the agreed upon conventions of organic agricultural systems are being practiced not only by growers, but also by all the people who handle and process organic food on its journey to the final consumer.
