After my last post, I realized I wanted to share a video of the turkeys after a move. When the turkeys get into their new paddock and start grazing and catching bugs, they make such a joyous noise!  Just listen to their happy chirps!


P.S. I’m sorry for posting a link instead of embedding the video.  I’m having some technical difficulties getting the video to embed properly. The link will get you there just as well!

About Heather Juda

Heather was born in Atlanta, GA, but spent 19 years in Colorado before moving to Virginia. She came to Polyface for the 2012 internship and has stayed on as the first female apprentice. She became interested in the food industry when she was in high school, and over the years sought to eat in a healthier way through community gardening, hunting and supporting local farmers. She had a very blessed and “comfortable” life in Colorado complete with a good IT career and condo, but on a calling from the Lord, she left it all to start a new life in farming at Polyface. She looks forward to seeing what the Lord has planned for the future and hopes to use what she learns at Polyface to provide healthy food for people!

    Wonderful. There is a wonderful documentary called My life As A Turkey on Netflix. A man raised a clutch of wild turkeys from the egg until they were out on their own. It is very poignant and we learned so much about turkey behavior and language. They actually do communicate with each other…naming things! See it if you get a chance. It will amaze you.

    I love those noises. We raised Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys this year and harvested them this past Sunday. They were so personable it made harvesting them hard. They made those noises all the time.
