A Little Bit More About Our Turkey
The Oneota Co-op will carry both fresh and frozen turkeys again this year. We are lucky to have two local (within 100 miles as the crow flies) producers supplying us with turkeys. Larry Schultz Organic Farm (Owatonna, MN) and Ferndale Market (Cannon Falls, MN).
Larry Schultz Organic farm is a small family farm where Larry and Cindy have always operated organically, certifying their land and poultry in 1998. The Oneota Co-op has carried Larry Schultz Organic Farms turkey, chicken and eggs for many years. We know from experience Schultz Organic turkeys have thick breasts with a deep, delicious flavor.
Ferndale Market turkey is raised by John Peterson and his family. The farm was started 70 years ago by John’s grandparents, Fern and Dale Peterson. Their turkeys are free range during the warm months and all of their turkey is naturally processed, so there are no artificial ingredients or antibiotics – just delicious turkey. In addition, Ferndale Market is strongly committed to the sustainability movement and sells their product locally to reconnect consumers with high-quality, local agriculture.
