At the farm 2014

Our littlechicks always look forward to the arrival of the new baby chicks

All the baby chicks have arrived first batch in June 2nd batch in July. The turkeys are doing great.The first 7 weeks are alot of hands on work.We do not have any automatic feeders so we spend alot of time in the turkeys.

 The June Birds  have already been moved outside about 2 weeks ago and the 2nd group will be big enough to move outside in about a week.It always amazes me the difference in the birds within the first week outside. It must be the fresh air and sunshine because that is when they really start to grow and really feather out. Our birds are fed with feed we mix ourselves here at the farm we mix 3 tons at a time. They are also fed bales of hay so that they get the greens that are important in a healthy turkey. We raise 5000 turkeys and they will eat about 140 bales of hay between now and November

Already taking orders for 2014

I have already started taking orders for those who want to reserve there Holiday Turkey early. So if you want to order now just give me a call 801-731-3760. Remember we are out in the turkeys alot in the morning so you might get the answering machine so be sure to leave your name and number and I'll call you back as soon as I can to get your order.

2013 On The Farm

2013 On The Farm

Another Season has started here at Wights Fresh Turkey Farm The first batch of baby chicks arrived the end of June and are doing great. They will stay in the brooder coops until they are 7 weeks old then they will be big enough to move them outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. The second flock will be coming in 3 weeks later .  We feed the turkeys an all natural feed that we mix ourselves right here on the farm. No growth hormones or antibiotics are added to our feed just top quality grains, minerals and vitimins. We also feed them local pasture grass and hay so they get a very well balanced healthy diet. All the feeding the first seven weeks is done by hand into small feeders. With all the care for the birds being done by the two of us and our little granddaughter it keeps them calm when we are in working with them.  . It is very important to us to give them the very best care because we take alot of pride in producing a top quality turkey for our customers. We also have already started taking orders for the 2013 Thanksgiving Season so gives us a call at 801-731-3760 and reserve yours now.

Cooking a Fresh Turkey

An all natural fresh turkey tends to cook faster than the ones you buy commercially . With our turkeys we recommend you cook them at 325 degrees  and figure 15 Minutes per pound unstuffed. If they are stuffed then 20 minutes per pound. They also have pop-up timers that work great. be sure to let the turkey set out of the oven approx 20 to 30 min before carving they will slice better for you that way.
 Happy Thanksgiving To You All.
