We're raising a small batch of pastured turkeys this year - 21 of them. They're in a pen that gets moved daily, and some of the turkeys immediately search through the grass looking for grasshoppers, crickets, and any other tasty snacks they can find. Other turkeys gobble down grass and other plants they find tasty - right now they're really loving a sprawling sorrel that's popped up naturally in the pastures. It's a legume and high in protein, so it's a turkey treat. We've got the standard Broadbreasted Whites and a few heritage breeds we're raising for some people.
