Bronze Turkeys ready for Thanksgiving

Bronze Turkeys offered by Koch's Turkey Farm "We are pleased to announce that we'll be offering a limited amount of Bronze Turkeys for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday" said Duane Koch, president of Koch's Turkey Farm in Tamaqua, PA. He added: "The birds are rarely raised and sold in the US since most turkey growers switched to the white variety years ago. These birds are beautiful and broad breasted, raised without antibiotics and according to humane standards".

Swarthmore Fall Fest

How many more beautiful fall days can we possibly have this year? The Swarthmore Coop Fall Festival ordered up some great weather today for the Philly suburb and I served up about 150 Cranberry Turkey Sliders, one panful at a time. My propane camp cookstove did just fine, turning out 4 ready to eat sliders every 5 minutes. A dollop of cranberry sauce was the condiment of choice for the dark meat sliders, served on a Martins potato roll. My first customer blew me away when he ordered 10 of the tasty treats, but in about 15 minutes, his order was ready. He actually called me later in the day and told me the burgers were great, a comment repeated throughout the day by festival attendees.

Valley Farm Market in Bethlehem, PA

If you want to visit a great supermarket, make your way to the Valley Farm Market in Bethlehem, PA. They have a sprawling fresh produce area, as large as you'll find. (that's Alice from produce holding our turkey burger box) The meat, seafood and deli counters carry a full selection for their loyal customers. The Koch's Cranberry turkey burgers were enjoyed by many hungry shoppers and I think in the coming weeks and months, we'll be selling a good variety of Koch's Turkey Farm natural products at this fine store.

Turkey burgers and nuggets in Jenkintown Whole Foods

I just returned from a Friday afternoon demo in the Whole Foods store in Jenkintown, PA. Center of the plate offerings were Turkey nuggets and Turkey Burgers a la Cranberry. Customers making their shopping rounds eagerly sampled both items, leading to a burger sell-out and many boxes of nuggets moving from freezer shelf to shopping cart. Tomorrow morning , I'm headed for the WFM at 9th & South St., Philly. Stop by if you can and say hey to the best turkey nuggets and burgers, from Koch's Turkey Farm, of course!

Greensgrow Farm Fall Fest yields Mayoral meeting!

We could not have asked for nicer weather in the fair city of Philadelphia for the Greensgrow Fall Festival at the urban nursery and sustainable ag oasis. People streamed into the celebration site, full of plants, flowers and food where activities hummed in every corner. There was face painting, pumpkin decorating, a farmers market, music and a surprise visit from the Mayor of Philly, the Honorable Michael Nutter. I'd been cooking Cranberry turkey Burgers all day, to rave reviews, when his honor stopped by. I greeted him, told him about Koch's Turkey Farm and asked for a quick pic. He was very happy to take the time and I have yet another celebrity close encounter to share while selling the benefits of out great turkey burgers.
