Diestel's Organic Heirloom Turkeys are part of a flock of rare breeds of turkeys—some breeds they raise date back to the 19th century. These birds are raised slowly and naturally in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, where they enjoy a vegetarian diet and are never treated with antibiotics, growth stimulants, or hormones. Heirloom breeds produce turkey meat that's flavorful, tender, juicy! Whether you're roasting, grilling, or even deep-frying, this turkey will be the perfect centerpiece for your family meal.
Your turkey may arrive "hard chilled," meaning that it's extra-chilled to preserve freshness and may seem frozen on the outside, but is not frozen through. Check out our Turkey Thawing guide (https://help.goodeggs.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018727192-Thaw-Your-Turkey
