About your Turkey

The Artisan Gold is a rare breed that is small in size and slow growing.  It thrives in a free-range or alternative environment where it can express natural behaviours while maintaining a high health status. This turkey offers a robust, hearty taste that is unique in the traditional turkey market.

The Artisan Gold has heritage tracing back to the Landes, Aquitaine region of France,  and continues to reflect this region’s dedication to taste and uncompromising quality.

Our turkeys enjoy certified organic grains.

Our processor does a great job cleaning the birds, however because of the breed sometimes there are pin feathers that will need to be removed from the skin.  This can be done with a set of tweezers, and some people choose to ignore removing since roasting the bird can also take care of them.  

Kendal Hills Game Farm is situated on 70 acres of rolling woodland in the ecologically sensitive Oak Ridges Moraine. Emily has called Kendal Hills home since she was a child and now she and Dave, as well as their two kids and her parents, are working with the land to farm pasture-raised fowl & other livestock and to cultivate and wild-harvest gourmet mushrooms. Emily & Dave are committed to the principles of regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services. By capturing carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, regenerative agriculture aims to reverse global climate change. At the same time, it offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, and higher health and vitality for farming communities. The system draws on decades of scientific and applied research by the global communities of organic farming, agroecology, holistic grazing, and agroforestry.

In addition to the farm, Emily works as an academic librarian and Dave draws upon his 15 years working on community food security and social innovation as Executive Director of the Rhizome Institute for the Future of Food, a national nonprofit dedicated to developing and testing new ideas that contribute to a regenerative food system.
