Rainbow Ranch Farms Terroir Heritage Turkeys are second-to-none! Every heritage, Terroir turkey goes through a 3-stage inspection for meat quality, weight, size, shape and breed, perfectly chilled and, bagged inside BPA-free packaging to ensure the highest quality and, product safety.
Rainbow Ranch Farms pasture/garden-raised, slow grown (9-14 months), heritage-breed, open foraged and free-range turkeys are unpredictable for weight and size. We reserve the right to provide a larger bird if needed.
Rainbow Ranch Farms Terroir turkeys are omnivores, NOT vegetarian, pescatarian or, vegan:
Diet is comprised of wild, native, indegenous vegetation within the Southern California Mojave Desert, worms, bugs, garden-grubs, fallen fruit, vegetables and wild/native forage.
Our perfect heirloom, pasture and, garden-raised gold-standard turkeys, are seasonal. They roam free, pecking, scratching and thriving within closed flocks.
Rainbow Ranch Farms turkey flocks have very special volunteer companions that provide direct care. In addition, they also get fresh, dry & soft (arsenic-free) bedding and, since our turkeys are natural breeders and raise baby turkey poults, right here on our farm, they also have clean, cozy and comfortable turkey coops to set and, hatch eggs.

How To Cook Turkey
Top 5 methods to cooking a RRF heritage turkey
Option 1: Deep fry. Be sure the turkey is dry. Let turkey drain and pat dry with towel before placing into hot oil!
Deep fry until internal breast temperature reaches 165 degrees(F). Let rest 10-15 minutes before serving. Follow the deep fryer manufacturers instructions and safety tips.
Option 2: Cut up turkey into legs, thighs, breast, wings and set aside the the neck, giblets and back to make a stock or gravy. Place the cut turkey peices onto a clean non-toxic baking pan and bake until internal temperatures of cut turkey meat reach 165 degrees(F). Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
Option 3: Place whole turkey (breasts down) in a deep baking pan. Bake on preferred temperature until internal temperature of turkey breast reaches 165 degrees (F). Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
Option 4: Place whole turkey (breasts up) in a deep baking pan. Cover with lid or similar. Bake on preferred temperature until internal temperature of breast reaches 165 degrees (F). Remove lid or similar covering and place oven temperature on 450 degrees(F) and let breast brown for 10-15 minutes (to your desired browning). Remove from oven and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
Option 5: Braised turkey. Cut up turkey into your preferred peices and set aside the giblets, neck and back for stock or gravy. Heat pure distilled water in a stock pot and add your favorite blends of herbs and spices (to taste). While water is coming to boil, heat a cast iron skillet (or similar) with plenty of organic, pure pork lard and brown the turkey meat (to your desired browning). After browning, place cut browned turkey into hot water and cover. Braise on low heat until internal temperatures of meat reach 165 degrees(F). Remove from heat and let water reach safe temperature. Carefully remove turkey peices from hot water and let rest 5-10 minutes before serving. Use the giblets, neck, back and the water from the stock pot to make a stock or gravy.
