Original Diestel Turkey

Original Diestel Turkey:

It all started with the Original Diestel turkey. These all-natural, slow-growing birds are given plenty of time and space to develop naturally in the clean Sierra Nevada foothills, resulting in a juicy, tender turkey with our signature old-fashioned flavor. These turkeys are known for “all that white meat.” You can count on them being tender and juicy with real turkey flavor! We recommend our simple roasting instructions for the best results.

Tender and juicy with real old-fashioned flavor:

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


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

All of our 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.
