   Talking Turkey: Seeing Through The Myths
by National Turkey Federation
Posted: Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 3:16PM EST

Closing the distance from farm to fork, America’s turkey farmers, represented by the National Turkey Federation, have prepared a new series of videos and resources offering common-sense answers about raising healthy turkey flocks on family farms.

The videos are available at AmericasTurkeyFarmers.org.

Featuring a series of videos introducing consumers to turkeys raised on corn and soybeans in climate-comfortable protective barns, Minnesota turkey farmer John Zimmerman answers questions in an approachable manner with the view inside his barn. Questions are posed with humor by a cartoon animated tom turkey suggesting the exaggerated myths that consumers are often subjected to about how their food is raised. The videos are formatted for social media and available for online sharing.

“People are curious and like to understand more about their food and where it comes from,” said Zimmerman. “It’s satisfying to know consumers can appreciate how turkey farming is both practical and sustainable, and the answers to their questions are all common-sense.”
