Joyce Farms – Winston Salem, NC (NATURAL)
Welcome Back to Holiday Flavor with International Gourmet Foods and Joyce Farms. Their Heritage Black Turkey is a heritage breed, admitted to APA standard in 1874. It is one of the first to be developed from Native American stocks. In fact, it is believed to be the same breed the Pilgrims feasted on during their first Thanksgiving. This breed is well-suited for foraging, and they raise these special birds on pasture, on small family farms in North Carolina; never fed any antibiotics, hormones, steroids, animal biproducts, or artificial ingredients. These turkeys are processed by hand in their own plant, and like all of their Heritage birds, they are air chilled to preserve flavor, tenderness, and perfect texture.
