Special! These heritage birds had pieces of their skin removed during processing for aesthetic reasons, and possibly a drum removed. Because of this, you get to enjoy them at a discounted rate!
Some suggestions for cooking a turkey with missing skin:
  • Brine the bird! This is our recommended method for cooking heritage turkeys, but it is even more important when it is missing skin.
  • Cover the exposed meat with butter or olive oil, and tent it with a strip of aluminum foil to contain the moisture.
  • Cover the exposed meat with bacon slices -tent this if it cooks too quickly.

Here's a Toronto Star (from 2020) profiling our approach to raising poultry and these turkeys. 

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.
