Let's Talk Turkey!
Oryana is T.C.'s exclusive source for fresh, pasture-raised, local Duerksen Turkey. Chemical and GMO-free, it's the best bird in town. The Duerksen Farm is located in Mancelona, Michigan and according to Sue Duerksen, the secret to their birds is in the pasturing. Pastured birds have access to fresh grass, bugs, and sunshine and thus have robust health. This translates into a flavorful bird that has not been tainted with chemicals or antibiotics. $2.99/lb

Food Fight Continues
Proposition 37, the ballot initiative in California to label GMOs failed to pass. But the good news is that more people than ever know about the issue. Just Label It, the national campaign to label GMOs will continue their work and plans to pressure the FDA to acknowledge the petition that was signed by 1.2 million people and encourage folks to contact their legislators to protest egregious riders attached to the Farm Bill, among other things. Oryana is a supporter of Just Label It and will continue to keep tabs on this issue.
