Thanks for the info Mat. Wow, $6.99 per pound. Ours our $6.00 per pound up to 16.17 pounds, and then there's no-charge after that weight (we felt $100 was the most we could charge). As mentioned, our birds are fed organic feed, so I would be curious to see if non-organic can bring $6.99/lb. Super interesting. Thank you for your reply.
I LOVE the photo of all of different heritage breeds. I wondered why a "share" must be coordinated with turkeys; don't they just come 1 to an order?
I too raise all of the breeds mentioned except I don't have any Narrangansetts this year but I do have Blue Slates, which is one of the most beautiful of the heritage breeds, and I looks like that's the one breed that ranch doesn't raise (wonder why).
We have sold-out this year but are holding back a couple of toms and girlfriends for them (Blues & Reds) in order to have a good start to next year's crop.
I wondered how much the turkeys are selling for? Also, do you know if they are fed organic feed? I would like to visit this farm if at all possible. Do you know if they give tours? We give 5-10 tours a week here at our farm (turkeys, laying hens, meat chickens, laying ducks, meat ducks, rabbits, pigeons, milk cow, meat cow, bees, huge gardens, 50 fruit trees, etc.).
Well, thank you for the post regarding the turkeys and I hope you sold out, as Thanksgiving is less than a week away.
Mat, can you let me know if you are working with Meridian Jacobs directly on the lamb purchase? I appreciate your doing that if you are.
If not, I can give them a call. I would like to find out if I can get a whole lamb, clean but not butchered, so I can roast it whole. And what is the price? And it is not frozen I hope? If I can get a whole one like that, and then split another lamb with your or someone else (if we can get it cut in half, I can butcher mine, or just get it cut up, either way).
