Bill Niman’s Turkey Farm

Bill Niman, who started the high quality Niman Ranch, with humanely raised, non chemicalized beef, now runs a turkey operation. He has about 300 turkeys that he uses for egg production. Once hatched, the turkeys are raised near Turlock, California, and I’ll bet they’re about the best turkeys you can find (haven’t tried one yet).

  1. Sounds good. Wish I could have access…grin..too far away. That being said, it is good to see/hear more and more folks understand and go to the work of this type of food production.
