American Poultry Association recognized Bourbon Red Turkey in 1909.
The Bourbon Red is a breed of domestic turkey named for its unique reddish plumage and Bourbon County, Kentucky. In the past, the species has been called Kentucky Reds and Bourbon Butternuts. The bird originated in Kentucky and Pennsylvania in the late 19th century and was created by crossing Buff, Standard Bronze, and White Holland turkeys.
Our Authentic Bourbon Red Turkeys are raised the old-world way with the freedom to fly all over our farm in Perris, California. Yes, I do not clip the wings of my Bourbon Red Turkeys. At night they roost on posts. This means you’re assured that I truly offer my birds raised wild. My Bourbon Red Turkeys are free of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, and pesticides. Our Bourbon Red Turkeys are harvested a week before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our Black Turkeys are shipped fresh.
Make Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner extra special this year and serve your guests a flavor not tasted since the early days of America!
Heritage Bourbon Red Turkey meat is flavorful, firm, and moist. One taste, and you will never return to a farm-raised bird again. A special treat for drumstick fans, the natural turkey meat is dark, even the breast meat.
A luxury, once tasted, becomes a necessity. Such is the case with the Heritage Bourbon Red Turkey.
