Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch turkeys can trace their genetics 175 years and are the oldest line of turkey in America. This is by far the juiciest, most flavorful bird on the market today, the result of genetics that pre-date factory farming. Fans of Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch turkeys include Alice Waters, who says "Amazing! I have always focused on sustainability and I forgot all about BREED. What a difference in taste!"
Frank has become an icon of American farming, and has been featured in publications ranging from The New York Times to National Geographic. His story is the reason why the word “heritage” is synonymous with the word “heirloom” when it comes to meat.
Certification by the American Poultry Association is the only label that matters when it comes to “heritage” poultry. Frank is the first and one of the only farmers to receive certification by the APA for his birds as purebreds, standards that they set in 1873. Your purchases have had a significant effect on the destiny of rare breeds, the kind that you have to eat in order to save: from 2003 to 2015 the Livestock Conservancy census (first conducted in 1987) shows an increase in population of 54% for the Black turkey; 41% for the Bourbon Red; 506% for the Narragansett; 502% for the Standard Bronze; and 1129% for the White Holland.
