Consider the bar for turkey quality officially raised.
We make safety and quality standards our #1 priority. Our products are traced from farm to table to help ensure the food you serve is as safe and fresh as possible.
But we don’t stop there. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve taken additional health and safety precautions to ensure the safety of all involved in the production of our turkey.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING PREMIUM PRODUCTS RAISED WITH CARE AND RESPECT.
Shady Brook Farms® turkeys have been USDA Verified since May 2015. What that means to you is that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides companies that supply agricultural products or services the opportunity to assure their customers of their ability to provide consistent quality products or services through their Process Verified Program.
What that means is Shady Brook Farms® turkeys are:
+ Proudly raised without growth-promoting antibiotics. Antibiotics responsibly used only when needed for treatment & prevention of illness.
+ Responsibly raised by independent farmers who are trained on animal handling practices.
RESPONSIBLY RAISED TURKEY MEANS LEAN PROTEIN FOR YOU.
Skinless turkey breast is one of the leanest meats available with one of the highest amounts of protein.
A four-ounce serving contains 26 grams of protein, about one gram of fat and zero grams of saturated fat.
Comparatively, skinless turkey breast has 12 percent more protein than the same size serving of boneless skinless chicken breast.
Turkey is rich in vitamins and minerals. It contains all of the B vitamins, especially B6 and B12 which help our bodies convert food into energy. An abundance of minerals are found in turkey, such as immune boosting zinc, selenium and iron.
Turkey also contains the amino acid tryptophan, which is commonly known to make you sleepy after your Thanksgiving meal. But did you know that tryptophan also helps the body produce serotonin, which has a calming effect and contributes to a happy mood?
Raised without growth-promoting antibiotics by independent family farmers, Shady Brook Farms® turkey is the easy choice for healthy protein, and a simple ingredient statement.
