FRESH Local Turkey!
I am very excited about our FRESH local turkey this year. After the farm we have used the last few years lost most of their baby turkey to predators I didn’t know if we would find another turkey farm that met our standards and was local. These local turkeys are an amazing value! Fresh, not frozen for the very best texture and flavor. Now we have never compared our prices to other local markets in the past, but I feel like you should know what a great value you will be getting with these turkeys. Other local “natural” foods stores are selling fresh turkey from the same farm for over fifty dollars more. And they don’t deliver! Read more about the great life of these turkeys on the farm below. Do you love turkey year round? Now is the time to stock up. Ask about our multiple turkey discount. I will be freezing several to make amazing turkey soup, bone broth and my husbands favorite turkey enchiladas this winter.
Order deadline is November 16th. These are pre-order prepay since we will be getting them just for you! You can order on-line or by phone. Turkey’s will be delivered November 22-27th. We will call or e-mail your specific delivery date.

About the Farm: At Robbins Family Farms – we strive to raise the most natural, free-range, healthy and antibiotic-free turkey, with no added hormones. In addition, our turkeys enjoy roaming in their pasture on the ranch, which includes all varieties of vegetation that a wild turkey would find in its natural habitat. That means a more natural and healthy bird, and you are sure to taste the difference!
Our turkeys begin life on our farm as day old chicks and begin feeding on a non-medicated wild game bird starter for the first 6 weeks. At 6 weeks of age, we supplement them with Idaho grown sweet corn and peas to help develop their digestive systems. These seeds are all guaranteed genetically modified organism (GMO) free to ensure you are getting the most natural product we can raise from feed to final turkey. In addition we feed them pumpkins, butternut, acorn, and spaghetti squash from Wissel Farms in Nampa, Idaho, that are grown without commercial fertilizer. We also feed them apples, plums, pluots, and other various fruits from Williamson Orchards and Vineyards in Caldwell, Idaho. We also move them to pasture on the ranch at 6 weeks, once their immune systems are developed and they are big enough to withstand changes in the weather and keep from being eaten by birds of prey.
Our pasture was developed following the wild turkey mentality. It was planted with Pennington’s seed mixtures for wild turkey which include millets, grain, sorghum, buckwheat, chufa, white clover, prairie grass, soybeans, iron clay cowpeas, sunflower, and a little sweet corn to create an abundant food source and excellent cover.
Our pasture is nearly a 4-acre area that is fenced to keep predators out, not the turkeys in. The birds enjoy the free range with multiple fresh, well-watering stations and free-range shelters that they can enter and exit at their leisure.
We basically pamper our birds and allow them to exercise, eat, forage and live on pasture on the ranch like a wild turkey would. This habitat and rearing process equals a fabulous tasting turkey, with a texture that is unforgettable and well worth spending a little extra money to buy a fresh local product grown right here in Idaho.
All of our turkeys are processed at Countryside Poultry Processing, a high quality, state-inspected facility in Fruitland, Idaho, by John and Gerry Kelly. Our birds are then delivered to you – fresh, local, and ready to eat. No additives or preservatives are added at any point during processing.
