Wallace Farms offers our customers truly pasture-raised turkeys! Our birds are unique in the world of poultry production for many reasons. We work primarily with John Peterson, who is a 3rd-generation turkey farmer near the town of Cannon Falls, MN. During good weather the animals are outside 100% of the time and supplemented with a variety of grains throughout the year, including flax seed. Our animals are never given any antibiotics or hormones. We process the birds at a custom USDA facility that specializes in turkeys. While there, our turkeys are always kept separate from those raised on factory farms. The facility does not use any chemicals, unlike all of the “traditional” turkey processing plants. Additionally, we do not add the traditional basting solution of water and salt to our finished product. Even more unusual, our processor performs the cutting of every bird by hand, in stark contrast to the larger plants that use machines to dramatically speed up the process.
