Pat Shingleton: "Tom Rurkey and Frank Reese..."
Ben Franklin suggested that the turkey should be America's national bird. It has a keen sense of smell and hearing and local hunting expert John Jackson notes that it is very difficult to "bag." He mentioned that those acquired from your local grocer have a different taste than wild birds. Frank Reese, Jr. has raised the same type of turkey since 1850 - a turkey that was advanced to the kitchen tables for many in America. Your turkeys for Thanksgiving are genetically engineered but Heritage Turkeys have never been "penned" or "cooped" in 169 years. As an expert poultry-man, he has saved five different breeds from extinction including: the Standard Bronze, the White Holland, the Narragansett, the Bourbon Red and the Black.
