SONORA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Diestel Family Turkey Ranch, a fourth-generation sustainable farm, has introduced an online store this holiday season, allowing consumers across the country to order premium birds direct from the family’s farm in the Sierra Foothills of California. Shared Heidi Diestel, turkey farmer, “With the launch of our new online store, we hope to further close the gap between the farmer and the consumer and extend the reach of both our birds and our farming values.”
Available for purchase at store.diestelturkey.com are Diestel’s raw, brined & seasoned, and fully-cooked turkeys. Please order by 12 Noon PST on November 22nd for Thanksgiving delivery (one day shipping only). Holiday turkeys will also be available to order for Christmas and Easter.
One of the last small, family-owned turkey grower-processors in the United States, the Diestels raise a variety of turkeys, perfect for any family. Whether the turkey of choice is their artisanal American Heirloom known for more rich and flavorful meat, a GAP 5+ rated pasture-raised turkey, or Diestel’s original, broad-breasted turkey possessing exceptional flavor, all of Diestel’s birds have one thing in common: They taste like turkey should. This is because the family’s ranching style, animal welfare practices, and strict sustainable standards consistently produce a better, tender and juicier turkey with real, old-fashioned flavor.
Diestel farmers walk the turkeys every day and pay close attention to their health, removing the need for antibiotics. The birds are fed a wholesome 100% vegetarian diet of grains milled and mixed daily on the ranch. Diestel is proud to be one of the last turkey producers in the Western U.S. to mill its own feed. In addition, Diestel birds are slow grown to their naturally intended weight and raised almost twice as long and given three times as much space as conventional birds. All of Diestel’s turkeys and ranches are audited by the Global Animal Partnership (GAP), and each turkey is completely free of antibiotics, growth stimulants, hormones, gluten, casein, carrageenan, phosphates, MSG, artificial ingredients and preservatives.
Diestel turkeys are also available for purchase at Whole Foods Market locations and other select natural food stores across the country. Visit www.diestelturkey.com for more information, and find @DiestelTurkey on Facebook and Twitter.
