Our turkey comes from one of the eight varieties of Standardbred turkeys in existence today:
Bronze, Narragansett, Bourbon Red, White Holland, Black, Slate, Beltsville Small White, Royal Palm
These rare and endangered birds have been bred by Frank Reese on the Good Shepherd Ranch in Kansas, the only remaining commercial USDA certified Standardbred heritage poultry farm in the U.S. Good Shepherd turkeys comprise the oldest continuous breeding lines of turkeys in North America and all are raised to these standards:
This year we broke ground on the Good Shepherd Conservancy Center (GSCC), a 501(c)(3) non profit. Building the Center might be our last chance to repopulate America’s farms with non-factory farm poultry. Remarkably almost every turkey and chicken consumed in the U.S. are industrial hybrids crossed from multiple lines of inbred birds which maintain specific mutations. GSCC is a bulwark against a total corporate takeover of our poultry industry.
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!"
