Sue and Rick Duerksen

This Thanksgiving and holiday season, celebrate with local bounty from a trustworthy source. Our neighbors in Mancelona, Rick and Sue Duerksen, have been raising free-range turkeys for 40 years. 

After the young Duerksen birds have all their feathers, they are free to roam outdoors all season on grassy pastures that are never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. Turkeys that dine on green pastures vs. grain-fed conventionally raised turkeys produce conjugated linoleic acid, (CLA) a fatty acid with many health benefits. 

The Duerksens process the birds onsite ensuring absolute freshness from field to table. All the care that the Duerksens put into their birds results in a truly superior tasting turkey.
