Tender and juicy with real old-fashioned flavor:

Our Heirloom turkey is consistently better – tender and juicy with that real old-fashioned turkey flavor.


Our Heirloom turkeys enjoy the freedom of being slow- grown in the clean Sierra Nevada Foothills with individual care, where they are raised longer to develop flavor naturally.

Fed a low- fat vegetarian diet free of growth stimulants and hormones:

Our Heirloom turkeys are fed a wholesome low-fat vegetarian diet of quality grains and soybeans milled on the Diestel ranch and, as always, completely free of growth stimulants and hormones.


Our Heirloom turkeys provide excellent value with more meat, less fat and less water than other turkeys.

Family ranch since 1949:

All these delicious turkeys are grown and processed directly to you by us – the Diestel Ranch. Our ranch is family owned and operated, since 1949, and we’re proud to be one of the last small, family owned turkey grower-processors in the United States.
