Elmwood Stock Farm
Turkey is a traditional food at fall and winter holiday meals, but the turkeys you find in mainstream grocery stores are not your great-grandfather's turkey. At Elmwood Stock Farm, two types of organic turkeys—heritage breeds and standard breeds—are raised on pasture.
During this farm tour, Elmwood's Mac Stone will introduce you to the turkeys, discuss the differences between the varieties, and even let you pick one out to take home later on! Turkeys are Mac's favorite farm animal, so this tour is sure to be filled with anecdotes and information that guests can't read in a book. Guests will learn about the breed-conservation work that the farmers at Elmwood Stock Farm are doing with heritage-breed turkeys and why this is important to them. Learn what it takes to raise turkeys outdoors on pasture, and how to best prepare them for your meal.
If you've never experienced turkey as it was meant to be, you should know Elmwood Stock Farm's organic heritage turkey was reviewed in a taste test by Cook's Illustrated magazine as "recommended." Also, Louisville's Courier-Journal food writer Jere Downs visited Elmwood Stock Farm's, producing this video.
About This Farm Tour
Elmwood Stock Farm tours are designed to educate adults and children about how food gets from the farm to your plate. These events will be held rain or shine, except in the event of severe weather.
Please plan to arrive 10 minutes before the event start time so that the tour may begin on time (note the earlier start time from our summer tours.)
To gain the full experience, wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty, pants that allow you to kneel to examine the soil, and protection from the sun (or rain). Please note that this is a working farm, so electric fences are on, children need to be supervised by the adults who brought them, and pets are not allowed.
Directions will be emailed to everyone who registers so that you can find the correct farm entrance and the starting point for this event.
