weavers way coop

I had a fine demo at the Weavers Way Coop new store in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Philadelphia yesterday.  Cranberry Turkey burgers were featured as was our new Koch's Turkey Farm Spicy Turkey Gravy. This is the Coop's 3rd store and they do a great job selling our natural turkey products. Customers, who were familiar with our product line, were thrilled with the new store at 8424 Germantown Rd., that opened just 2 weeks ago.  If I lived in Philly, I think I'd join the Coop - they are a terrific bunch of people. Based on their response to the samples, I think they'll be grilling our turkey burgers this Memorial Day weekend!

test kitchen

I spent some time in the test kitchen today with 2 trial products. 1. A spicy turkey bbq featuring our smoked turkey breast and a no high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) BBQ sauce from Beltway BBQ. 2. Also we tried a stuffed turkey cutlet, with a nice piece of turkey breast and a serving spoon of cranberry dressing. Will either of these items hit supermarket shelves anytime soon? That remains to be seen, development of new items can take up to a year - but we never stop tasting and trying to come up with the next great turkey entree here at Koch's Turkey Farm!

great day in Chevy Chase!

It was a great opening day in Chevy Chase, MD today for the new Whole Foods Market. People young and old entered the new store and were impressed by the design, warmth and spaciousness of the new natural foods store. I sampled Cranberry Turkey burgers for 1/2 the day and oven roasted turkey breast in the afternoon. Both products were well received by the steady crowd. Tomorrow, I will have the same offerings, plus a Koch's Turkey Farm button to anyone that reads this post, comes to the store and says "I want my turkey burger button!"

Chevy Chase...not the actor

At next weeks grand opening of the new Chevy Chase, MD Whole Foods store, a pitchman (that would be me) will make the case for his innovative new burger, the Cranberry Turkey Burger from Koch's Turkey Farm, Tamaqua, PA. Christian Hunker will spend several hours each day sampling the item that he developed in 2009 in the Koch's Turkey Farm kitchen. A mix of diced, dried cranberries and lean, ground natural turkey - the burger is a healthy twist on fatty, sodium laden patties found elsewhere. How will the hungry shoppers react? Their opinion counts and will help determine this new burgers' fate.

That's not all folks....Saturday I will appear in an encore performance as the best turkey burger demo man in the country...stop by and say hi and take home some natural turkey goodness!
