Greg Gunthorp was raised on a farm in Lagrange, Indiana only a mile from where he now lives with his wife, Lei, and their three young children. Gunthorp owns 65 acres and uses about 65 acres of his parents’ farm. We have had great success selling Gunthorp’s chickens and ducks at our stores over the years and are excited to be able to offer his turkeys again this year.
The Gunthorps pasture raise their birds in wheat, clover, rye and various grasses, and harvest their own corn for feed in the fall, the only off-farm input being Hubbard’s Homestead mineral mix. The birds have access to shelter and feed during bad weather, but spend most of their time foraging. No drugs, antibiotics or hormones are used on the farm and the animals are processed on the farm in a USDA-approved meat plant.
The early forecast for the birds is that they should be in the range of 15-22 pounds per bird and they will come in fresh the week of Thanksgiving and be very tasty. Reserve your birds early because this is a farmer who does it right and his self proclaimed way to sell his turkeys is “Good-tasting birds sell themselves”.
Price is $3.49 per pound
All birds will be between 15 - 22lbs.
Gunthorp Farms Turkeys will be available for pick up on Sunday, November 24th.
