The 100 Year Heritage Turkey

Chef Westermann spent time with Frank on the Good Shepherd Ranch, getting to know his birds, learning about their environment and how they are raised- from the time they first hatch. It is the will of Le Coq Rico to pay tribute to heritage birds and the farmers who raise them responsibly by encouraging the natural behaviors that contribute to their health & well being.

This Thanksgiving Chef Westermann is proud to share the Frank Reese Heritage Turkey. Frank Reese is a fourth generation Farmer. He owns and operates Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch in Lindsborg, Kansas- the first turkey farm to be certified by the Animal Welfare Institute. Frank is a founding member of the All American Turkey Growers Association and a lifetime member of the National Poultry Association.
