AWI Food Show - York, PA

I met some great people at the York Fairgrounds this week while exhibiting during the semi-annual AWI Food Show. AWI is a regional meat, produce and grocery supplier in the mid-Atlantic to independent markets. While showing our natural turkey line, the Cranberry Turkey Burger was the star of the show and I stayed busy cooking for the attendees. Store owners and managers from NY, PA, MD and VA sampled the Koch's Turkey Farm product and several placed orders. Many of these stores are right here in our local area and it's nice to have them as customers - like the Valley Farm Market managers from Bethlehem, PA. (see pic)

Burgers, Drums and Mangoes

I ran into some heavy summer traffic on I-95 driving from PA down to North Carolina for this weeks Koch's Turkey demo's. It was well worth the 10 hour interstate effort as I had a quick sell-out of our Cranberry Turkey burgers in the Durham, NC Whole Foods Market on Friday.
For the rest of the day, I went to a tropical theme and sampled smoked turkey drums with sliced mango. I cut off pieces of the smoked drum, after heating them up in a skillet and added a chunk of warm mango to make tiny kabob bites. The sweet mango and smokey drums led to several sales of our terrific turkey drums.
If you're not busy, Saturday morning I'll be at the Winston-Salem WFM, see you there!

Sold out in Wayne, PA!

This week the great Cranberry Burger Demo show went to Wayne, PA to test the people's reaction to the latest tasty burger from Koch's Turkey Farm. It went very well, people were won over quickly by the subtle sweetness of the berry burger and a sell out was recorded in short order. It just shows you that people are willing to give a new product a chance, especially when it's healthy (low in sodium, calories and saturated fat), easy to prepare (7 minutes from the freezer in a fry pan), and tastes good! Food allergies and other ingredient issues are important for most people I meet at Whole Foods Markets and it's great to have a turkey burger that answers their concerns.
