Bourbon Red Turkeys

Named after the County of Bourbon Kentucky and Red for their predominant color, the breed was developed in the late 1800’s by crossing the Bronze, Buff, and White Holland Turkeys.  The American Poultry Association recognized the Breed in 1909.  Because Bourbons breed naturally, have a slow growth rate (26 to 28 weeks to reach marketable weight), have a long productive lifespan, and can fend for themselves in the outdoor environment, they meet the definition of a Heritage Turkey.

We have poults available for sale in late spring and early summer; fresh dressed Thanksgiving and Christmas Turkeys are available upon request.
