We use natural spices and seasonings with names you can pronounce, and you won’t find MSG or artificial ingredients on our label. The mouthwatering taste? That’s the taste of turkey done right.

No matter what you’re craving, Diestel Family Ranch has a bird for you. We offer a variety of low sodium and no added salt products. Our natural and organic oven roasted turkey breast, for example, has just 280mg of sodium per serving.
None of our deli meat products contain gluten-full ingredients, but we can’t speak for what happens behind your local deli counter. If you’re sensitive to gluten, be sure to ask your deli about any potential contact.
No matter how you slice ‘em—yes, that pun is intended—Diestel Family Ranch deli meats have a luscious texture and exquisite taste that make a sandwich so much more than a sandwich. Every one of our products is:
- Free from gluten, casein, phosphates, and MSG
- Free from nitrates, nitrites, artificial ingredients and preservatives
- Free from antibiotics or growth stimulants
- Raised on 100% vegetarian diets
- Made from whole muscle meat without fillers
- Raised thoughtfully on independent family farms and ranches
You can keep a fresh turkey in your refrigerator as long as you’d like, but we’d urge you not to eat it after three days. If you don’t plan to eat it within three days, we recommend that you freeze it to ensure it’s safe, wholesome, and delicious.
Yes! Flavor needs space to develop. Our animals are raised with room to roam, whether indoors or outdoors. They’re raised on a proprietary, all-vegetarian diet that encourages slow, natural growth, and they’re never given hormones, antibiotics or growth stimulants. The only thing we inject them with is our passion for thoughtful, compassionate agriculture. Ultimately, we believe that doing things right results in a happier, healthier animal—and a heftier, more flavorful product.
If you’d like to talk more about our commitment to animal welfare, give us a call at (209) 532-4950. We love to talk about this stuff.
We’re committed to advancing the art of independent and regenerative agriculture for everyone. For us, that means working with small and independent farmers like us who are fighting to sustain a method of farming and a way of life that’s existed for generations. Together, we’re creating an economic model that helps independent, values-driven farms and farmers to succeed and endure. If there’s one thing we hope to make our legacy, that’d be it.
If by “book” you mean “turkey” and “cover” you mean “feathers,” then yes, you can judge a book by its cover. Our brown-feathered birds are part of our American Heirloom collection, a rare collection of turkeys just like the ones our great-grandma grew. We raise them just like our Diestel and Diestel Organic turkeys, but they have a richer, more complex flavor unlike any turkey you’ve ever tasted.
Most producers use one standard breed of bird that’s been genetically engineered and fed to grow fast and cheap. Diestel Family Ranch raises a wide variety of birds, each of which is raised slowly, naturally, and with intention to bring out that breed’s unique, crave-worthy characteristics. To see the full Diestel Family of Turkeys, visit our breeds page.
Now in its fourth generation, the Diestel Family Ranch has been a real family farm run by a real family of farmers since 1949. Our ranch is located in beautiful Sonora, California, about 125 miles East of San Francisco as the crow flies. (Sure, it’s 125 miles as the turkey flies, too, but it’d take way longer.)
We are very sorry, but we can't seem to find a match for that.
