Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch is our nation's premiere poultry farm. No farmer is more respected than Frank Reese, an honor that has been bestowed on him by chefs around the country as well as publications such as the New York Times, National Geographic, and Martha Stewart Living. All the poultry Frank raises come from genetics endorsed by the American Poultry Association meaning that they are truly American breeds from before the advent of factory farming and genetic engineering.
Delaware Chicken Delawares, originally called “Indian Rivers,” were developed by George Ellis of Delaware in 1940. The breed originated from crosses of Barred Plymouth Rock roosters and New Hampshire hens. The Delaware chicken was recognized by the American Poultry Association as a standard breed in 1952 and makes an excellent dual-purpose bird.
Turk-etta To make the turk-etta, third-generation Swiss butcher, Thomas Odermatt, whose Roli Roti sandwiches have become a culinary landmark in his hometown of San Francisco debones an entire pasture-raised turkey from Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch, seasons it with traditional porchetta herbs and spices, and then rolls and ties it into a beautiful oven-ready roast. Like Odermatt’s other creations, the turk-etta lives at the zenith of the gastronomic arts, combining Old-World traditions with the best of traditional American farming. The turk-etta makes for a perfect centerpiece or for sandwiches and everyday meals.
Heritage Turkey Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch turkeys can trace their genetics 174 years and are the oldest line of turkey in America. This year the flock celebrates its 101st year in the great state of Kansas. This is by far the juiciest, most flavorful bird on the market today.
Good Shepherd turkeys are 100% antibiotic free from the parent stock to the hatching to the harvest and pasture raised on the Kansas prairie. Fans of Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch turkeys include Alice Waters, who says “These birds are without a doubt the tastiest birds you can possibly serve!”
