Talking Turkey Tour
Comments: Turkey is a traditional food at fall and winter holiday meals, but the turkeys you find in mainstream grocery stores are not your great-grandfather's turkey. At Elmwood Stock Farm, two types of organic turkeys—heritage breeds and standard breeds—are raised on pasture. During the Talking Turkey Tour, Elmwood's Mac Stone will discuss the differences between the varieties, from what it takes to raise them on pasture to how to best prepare them for your meal. Turkeys are Mac's favorite farm animal.
