The Shady Brook Farms® brand is committed to good food for all. We believe you shouldn’t have to pay a premium for wholesome, natural turkey raised with care and respect, and without the use of growth-promoting antibiotics. That’s what our independent farmers make possible.
One thing all farmers take pride in is raising good food that thousands of people enjoy. Keeping food affordable is an important part of this.
Balancing quality and cost can be challenging. The key for Shady Brook Farms® turkey is working with independent farmers to develop best practices and maintain healthy flocks. Bird losses drive up costs for all involved, and our farmers work hard to keep their birds healthy, which also helps keep food affordable.
Eating turkey is a good, efficient choice.
Good turkey, sustainable protein
Poultry is one of the most sustainable proteins. Less feed is needed for poultry than for other livestock to create one pound of body mass. The input to output ratio (feed vs. body mass) of turkey makes it a truly good, efficient choice. Not only that, but turkey is one of the most efficient proteins for your body. Turkey breast meat provides about 26 grams of protein in a 4-ounce portion according to the USDA, and it provides all the essential amino acids your body requires on a daily basis.
