Happy Turkeys make healthy meals at GreenAg Organic Free Range Turkeys
GreenAg Organic Free Range Turkeys
GreenAg believes that the quality of their poultry begins with the quality of life their turkeys have. Quite possibly the happiest turkeys on the continent, they are treated to baroque music to help them de-stress, and they eat top quality food that is organic and hormone free. In addition to their feed, however, these happy turkeys have free range with herbal plants, natural exercise and foraging. With their faces to the sunshine, these turkeys exceed Australian standards by living antibiotic free, healthy lives. They go above and beyond what it means to be “organic.”
And their healthy lives mean the poultry produced is healthy for us. Ewart and Suzanne Sylvester, third generation farmers who own and operate GreenAg Organic Free Range Turkeys, even consult a naturopath to make sure the turkeys stay happy and healthy. They know all too well that feeding animals or humans products with hormones, preservatives or antibiotics can lead to health problems for both. Because of this, they begin by supplementing their turkey’s natural foraging with feed that is free from fertilisers and chemicals.
Best of all, Ewart and Suzanne, who have been farming turkeys for five years, love being able to educate people about why they farm the way they do. The farmer’s market provides them with a unique opportunity to answer customer questions, raise awareness, and encourage others to have healthier farming practices. In fact, they follow up with random customers to make sure they are satisfied, sometimes with a friendly phone call. They also have the opportunity at the markets to demonstrate delicious ways to cook their poultry and provide recipe ideas.
