In addition to growing organic vegetables, we raise pastured turkeys at Midnight Sun Farm. The term “pastured” describes poultry that has been raised on a grassy, open area. Our turkeys range freely in an enclosed pasture, allowing the birds to peck and graze for live grasses and bugs. The pasture is rotated as needed to provide the birds access to fresh forage. Our birds are fed a grain ration that is free of antibiotics.
Pastured poultry offers an alternative to the confinement-raised poultry typically available in grocery stores. It is a healthy choice for your family, both because our birds eat high-quality food and green forage, and because free-range birds develop the most nutritionally dense meat available. It is also a conscientious choice for those concerned with animal welfare. Finally, who can beat being able to visit the farm and meet the farmer who raises your turkeys?
