Why is PASTURED Organic Turkey Best?
means the animals are free roaming in nature and not confined in a
small box their whole life. They get fresh air and sunlight, and forage
for foods like insects and plants naturally found outdoors. This results
in a very healthy animal who never needs to be given any antibiotics,
and thus healthy, delicious food for you to eat!
Organic Turkeys may
or may not be free roaming. This depends on the farm they are from so
it's best that you ask if it does not specifically state "Pastured" or
"Free Roaming". Organic Turkeys eat pesticide-free, chemical-free, and
GMO-free feed which is important, and are not given any antibiotics.
Conventional Turkeys found
in grocery stores are packed tight indoors in cages. Because of their
close quarters, they are routinely fed antibiotics to ward off
infection. They dine on GMO soy and corn instead of natural food, and
their corn and soy-meal was sprayed with pesticides. Their environment
is filled with the strong stench of their fecal mater which is usually
piled high in their cage and filled with toxic bacteria. They live very
means it that does not contain artificial flavors, colors, or
preservatives and is minimally processed. The term Free Range doesn't
necessarily guarantee a clean, safe area outdoors, and those birds can
be treated with antibiotics. Know your farm. If you are not getting an
organic bird, at the very least, make sure to choose an AF (antibiotic-
& hormone-free) bird and one that has room to move from a farm that
is animal friendly.
