DetailsHeritage Black is a distinguished breed, one of the first domesticated turkeys to be developed from Native American stock, believed to be the same breed served at the first Thanksgiving feast. We source our turkeys from a small family farm in North Carolina and are pasture centered certified GAP Step 4 by the Global Animal Partnership, meaning they have continuous outdoor access with protection from harmful elements. See for yourself how flavorful heritage turkey can be. Unstuffed and ready to cook. Serves 10-14. Ships frozen, when placing your order please allow for thawing, 2-4 days in refrigerator.
