Last fall we covered Slow Food Russian River’s Heritage Turkey Project to encourage the production of endangered breeds. The three-year old program partners with 4-H and Future Farmers of America to get kids in the region involved in raising the turkeys.
A good time to remind everyone that, while they are super popular and often sell out by Thanksgiving Day itself, it is not too late to get a heritage bird! Go to localharvest.org to find producers near you.
