A Free-Range Lifestyle
From the moment their baby chicks are born, they are cared for in a sheltered, heated brooder barn to maximize healthy growth during the early stages of life. The chicks are given food and water by hand, and no antibiotics are used throughout the turkey's entire life. When the turkeys get old enough, they are transitioned to the outdoors full-time during the summer months, so the birds can forage in nature like true free-range animals. At Ferndale, they take pride in raising free-range turkeys the way nature and their namesake intended, and at Crowd Cow, we couldn't be happier to have them as part of our family.
Raised the Way Nature Intended
Ferndale turkeys grow naturally, without the use of artificial growth hormones. During the temperate months, they are rotated on fresh pasture so they have access to clean air and fresh grass. Each Ferndale Market turkey has been raised antibiotic-free and with room to roam on our family farms in Minnesota - so you can feel good knowing you’re feeding your family the very best. Naturally processed with no additives, our frozen whole turkeys are the perfect tradition for your holiday meal and all year-round!
