New Turkeys this year from Koch's Turkey Farm 
Koch's Farm in Pennsylvania is a true pioneer when it comes to raising a better bird.  

Koch's turkeys have twice the amount of space in the turkey barns as is required by normal commercial growing practices. The high standards for raising turkeys this way guarantees Koch's Turkey Farm is one of the few family owned turkey farms that is committed to producing the healthiest, most humane and best tasting turkey available.

We are thrilled to support a farm family whose care for their animals is the absolute top priority. We hope that you will give these turkeys a try!
