Thanksgiving in July

Fried turkey is one of my favorite holiday meals.  The crispy skin, tender meat and beautiful color makes my belly rumble just thinking about it.  My dad perfected the art last year and boy are we now spoiled.

However there is one thing that I don’t like about turkeys.

They are not the brightest line of poultry.  Their mamas must have their hands full because we have had to teach them how to eat and drink along with playing any kind of noise to keep them evenly dispersed in the brooder.  They do better with people talking so they have had their ears full with a radio station that airs nothing but sermons.  Let’s just say if they were the marrying kind they would have that all figured out by now.

If you haven’t caught on by now GP Farms is raising a line of pastured turkeys that will be available just in time for the holidays.  That’s right, delicious pastured turkeys for your thanksgiving meal. The details on how and where to purchase these fine creatures will be posted on the blog and Facebook page.

Now on to the secret I’ve been planning.

GP Farms is in the middle of developing a delivery drop off point across Southern Louisiana. *Gasp* Yes.  We are partnering with Hill Crest Creamery to have a Essentials Box available for purchase soon.  In the weekly box you can customize your order to include pastured poultry, pork, beef, eggs and Hill Crest Creamery milk.  We will have options for 1-2 people and 3-4 people with the milk and eggs being an add-on’s so you can get exactly how much you need for the week. Delivery will be once a week in a designated drop off location.  Expect the official announcement later on this summer once we get the final details ironed out!


I just want to take a moment to thank yall for the support this last year and a half.  We’ve had our ups and downs on the farm and without yall we would not be where we are today.

We are so grateful.
