It may be difficult to believe, but recent cultural offerings like Food, Inc. and Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals got the dusted gears in our brain-muscles turning.
While we may never look the same at our post-workout diced chicken breasts again, it pains us no less to look at a Thanksgiving table with poultry-shaped tofu as its only highlight.
So if you were to twist our arms or pull our hair (after buying us a drink first, of course), we might not argue with arranging a traditional T-Day spread. Thankfully, Good Shepherd Poultry Farms are here to help lessen our guilt while providing a sumptuously devilish holiday meal.
Turkeys from the renowned poultry farms are raised on outdoor ranges, bred naturally, fed only with vegetarian feed with top-notch animal welfare standards.
Moreover, the heritage breed of turkeys the Good Shepherd network raises are considered endangered, and supporting these environmentally-friendly farms actually aids the conservation of these dwindling bird populations.
If that wasn’t enough irony for you, the Animal Welfare Institute has approved Good Shepherd’s network of free-range farms with a special certification.
So, in other words, they’re probably treated better than our last boyfriend treated us. Doesn’t that alone clear a heritage turkey from our conscience?
