Here’s how we make a better bird on our family ranch in Sonora, California.

Variety

Non-GMO Pasture-Raised

When we say, “If there’s a right choice, we’ll make it,” we mean it.

Our Pasture-Raised turkeys were the first in the industry to earn the highest rating from the Global Animal Partnership—a GAP Step 5 rating. They’re raised entirely on open pastures, and they play a crucial part in our polyculture farming program, a traditional style of farming that actually uses agriculture to revitalize the land.

And they taste as amazing as they sound. Our Pasture-Raised turkeys are tender, juicy, and full of flavor—no matter how you prepare them. Dig in. Do good.

Organic American Heirloom

Most turkeys today are a shadow of the breed that once was.

Our Organic American Heirloom Turkeys are the breed that once was, dating back to the nineteenth century.

Our Organic American Heirloom Collection comprises Auburn, Black, and American Bronze turkeys, rare older breeds that are hardy and well-adapted to the foothills of Sonora, where Diestel Family Ranch is located. These birds produce exquisite meat with exceptional, rich flavor that’s tender, juicy, and exceptionally hard to come by.

Original

The bird. The myth. The legend. It all began with the Original Diestel turkey.

These all-natural, slow-grown birds are given the time and space they need to develop naturally to produce the tender, juicy, bold flavor you’d expect of a Diestel bird. It’s also available in a Non-GMO Project Verified variety for anyone who wants to take their turkey game to the next level, as well as an Organic for those looking for a feast for their stomach and their conscience.

Petite

If you’ve ever thought, “I’d love to roast a turkey for two,” then the Petite Turkey is the bird for you.

If you’ve ever thought, “I’d love to roast a turkey for two,” then the Petite Turkey is the bird for you. Its smaller size makes it perfect for a spur-of-the-moment, gotta-have-it BBQ, rotisserie, or roasting, but don’t be fooled: there’s still loads of meat on those bones. If you want a Non-GMO Petite, we’ve got it, and if you’re looking for a smaller bird doing bigger good in the world, we have an Organic Petite, too.
