***** NOTICE - We are sold out of turkeys for the 2007 Season *****
Shady Springs Ranch is our small family owned ranch in Franktown, Colorado. We specialize in naturally grown, free range, pasture fed bronze turkeys.
We raise our turkeys from 1 day to approximately 8 weeks of age in an environmentally controlled shelter, where they always have clean, fresh water and vegetarian feed available.
At about 4 weeks of age our turkeys are introduced to the pasture, on a limited basis. At 8 weeks they are allowed full pasture access, where they forage for grasses and insects, in a natural, free environment. They are released from their shelter each day at sunrise, returning at sunset, where they can roost or sleep on a bed of straw.
The pasture foraging is supplemented with the highest quality vegetarian feed, prepared locally in Colorado.
We use absolutely no growth hormones, steriods or medications... but we do provide the most natural, humane environment possible.
Our turkeys are processed at a Colorado based USDA inspected plant. Absolutely no preservatives are used.
We are currently selling frozen turkeys, which were processed Dec. 14th, 2006.
Next year, we will once again offer fresh, heritage and heritage-cross old-fashioned Bronze turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
