We raise broad breasted white turkeys on pasture. We do not have our turkeys during their brooding stage. We get them from Tom Otto's turkey farm in Middleville, MI when they are ready to go to pasture. He does an excellent job. We get them at about 8 pounds at 8 weeks. Our turkeys are a highly seasonal bird, as you might have guessed. We do most of our birds as whole birds for Thanksgiving. We do raise a summer group of turkeys that we use for turkey breasts and ground turkey products. Our biggest turkey breast customer is Smoking Goose. You should try their smoked turkey breast!
