Turkey is a traditional food at fall and winter holiday meals, but the turkeys you find in mainstream grocery stores are not your great-grandfather’s turkey. At Elmwood Stock Farm, two types of organic turkeys—heritage breeds and standard breeds—are raised on pasture. During the Talking Turkey Tour, Elmwood’s Mac Stone will discuss the differences between the varieties, from what it takes to raise them on pasture to how to best prepare them for your meal. Turkeys are Mac’s favorite farm animal, so this tour is sure to be filled with anecdotes and information that guests can’t read in a book.
Guests will learn about the breed-conservation work that the farmers at Elmwood Stock Farm are doing with heritage-breed turkeys and why this is important to them. Cooking tips and turkey-breed selection for upcoming holiday meals will be covered, too. At the end of the evening, the farm-food tasting will include a range of seasonal vegetables prepared by the farm chef, in addition to a comparison of turkey meats.
Elmwood Stock Farm’s organic heritage turkey was reviewed in a taste test by Cook’s Illustrated magazine as “recommended.”

Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky., is a 6th-generation family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle. The cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, tobacco and even compost. Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority. Elmwood’s produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA programs in Kentucky and Ohio.
