              No More Fresh Turkeys, No Longer In Business

If you are trying to call and order your fresh turkey we are no longer in business. However if you have been trying to call the phone company is not stating that the number is disconnected it just says call back later. This is due to the line being damaged in the storm and never repaired.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers for your patronage over the past 21 years. Sadly we have had to close our business due to 2 unexpected circumstances. The landowners we leased from decided to sell the property last year and had informed us this would be our last year. The developers are putting a 47 home subdivision in  place of the farm. Then in May 2017 we experienced a devastating windstorm which destroyed much of the farm. The damage was over $75,000. With already knowing this would have been our last year there was no way we could afford to rebuild for just one year.  We would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. We will miss seeing you.

Great Price On Equipment

      We are selling the 2 key pieces needed to start your own poultry business. With us closing it leaves a void in Northern Utah for someone to come in and   provide fresh all natural Turkeys. We raised and processed 5000 turkeys a year   and also did all of our own wholesale and retail sales Taking in orders as early as June to be picked up the week of Thanksgiving . With over 95% of all of the sales being delivered or picked up the 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. In the month of November during those  2 weeks we had a total gross sales of $197,000. We also have a large customer base hoping someone will step in and provide them with   all natural antibiotic free fresh turkeys.  The way the market is today with more and more people wanting to be able to buy farm to table, good all natural products it is a great time to get into the business. The only reason we are selling these is that we are retiring. 


Ashley Scaulder


Knase Picker



 The 2 key pieces of equipment needed are a good Scaulder  and a good picker. We are selling ours for $6000 for the pair. They are in excellent condition with less than 450 operating ours on them. They are both set up with and automatic timer, with  thermostatically controlled set up  on our Ashley Scaulder. The Knasee picker comes with a loading and receiving tables, extra picker disc and and automatic timer for picking . We bought them new and they have had regular maintenance on them always. To buy these both brand new today would run you over $19,000. If interested give us a call or text at 801-690-3487.

Wednesday, May 10, 2017



It is with heavy hearts we are sad to announce after 35 years we are going to have to close our doors. Our property suffered irreparable damage on Sat. May 6th. due to extremely high winds. We are in the process of trying to negotiate with one of our long time customers to try and keep the brand and quality alive. We are trying to have someone take over where we are leaving off. We will keep you posted as this progresses. We hope this all works, as he believes in the Wight's name being carried on. We are hoping everyone will continue to have a Wight's Turkey on their table. We would like to thank everyone for their support and concern this last few days. This has been a very difficult decision for us to make as a family. Thank you for your friendship and business over the years . We will miss you all !
Sincerely,
Craig & Carol Hess

Cooking Our Fresh Turkeys

Be sure to remove the giblets which are located under the neck flap. Also remove neck from cavity before cooking. A fresh turkey may smell a little different then the commercial bird when preparing this is because they will not have a chemical smell which most people who have bought commercial birds and gotten used to. So open the bag, there will be some natural juice inside so rinse your turkey then prep and season. 

Our fresh turkeys tend to cook a little faster than what you might be used to if this is your first time. We recommend that you bake them at 325 degrees and figure 15 min. per pound.(20  min. if stuffed). They have a pop-up timer that is set to pop-up at 180 degrees. Start checking about 30 min before you figured it to be done because each bird will cook just a little bit different. I usually like to let it rest after removing from oven about 15 to 20 min. It will carve nicer. There are a lot of other ways to cook your turkey, cook in bags, deep fryer , roasting pans. These other ways will also cook a little faster then instructed so cut off a little time and use a meat thermometer to check your temp. Also if deep frying to keep the wings and drums from overcooking tie a cotton string around the turkey at the wings and drums pulling them in snug before cooking.

Happy Thanksgiving  and Good Health and Happiness to all  this Holiday Season
