Preserving traditional varieties of Turkeys

Given the extremely low numbers of some varieties, there is a very real danger that they could be lost forever, but at Heritage Turkeys we are doing all we can to halt the decline.  We believe the most effective way to retain and sustain the traditional turkey varieties is through careful management of core breeding stock with surplus birds sold on to an ever-growing band of traditional turkey enthusiasts.

This website is intended to highlight the diverse varieties of turkey available, identify why it is essential to retain traditional varieties, inform potential keepers on how best to maintain a healthy and happy flock, and entertain you with regular updates of our turkey’s antics.

If you have any questions about Heritage Turkeys, would like to know more about the availability of varieties we raise, or just want to ask a turkey-related question, please do not hesitate to contact us.
