Is there turkey on your Christmas menu? Tyaskin Pasture Fresh Farm will be bringing “fresh” Midget White Heritage turkeys to this weekend’s Christmas Farmers Market.  Farmer Dave has raised these heritage breed turkeys free-range on his far…m.  The birds scavenged naturally for food in the pastures and were feed a diet free of any antibiotics and GMO’s.   The turkeys will be available in sizes that range from 8 to 14 pounds. Dave suggests arriving early at market for the best selection. This Christmas, a Tyaskin Pasture Fresh Farm Turkey will easily be a family favorite on your holiday table, simply because they taste great.
