Welcome to Duerksen Turkey Farm, a third generation farm located in Mancelona, Michigan. Mancelona is a small town located in Antrim County, in the northwest portion of Michigan’s lower peninsula.

WHY IS PASTURE RAISED BEST? Omega-3 is one of the two essential fatty acids that cannot be produced by our bodies but are required for good health. Omega-3 fatty acid is found in green leaf vegetables, grass and forbs. Omega-6 fatty acid is found in grains such as soy beans and corn. Both are essential for our health.
Our turkeys spend their lives in wide open spaces. They dine on tender green grass and breathe fresh country air, while chasing after a delicious meal of a variety of insects and grasshoppers. They are not subject to crowding, toxic ammonia fumes, or inhumane practices.
Please continue to browse our website and learn more about our growing practice with our turkeys and other health benefits. We would love to share our story and our love for farming with everyone.
Feel free to stop and visit our farm to see first-hand how our turkeys are raised. We would love to have you stay and enjoy a glass of sun-brewed ice tea or lemonade.
Thank you for supporting our family farm!
