Heritage Poultry

We sell our poultry as whole, frozen birds. Consider using the carcass to make a very flavorful stock, which can be frozen for later use.  As stewards of these breeds, we are working to help return them to their previous numbers. We feel the best way to do this, is to promote their many benefits, including the excellent taste, and help return them to the family table.
Our Animals Are:

Heritage Breeds

Listed on the Slow Food Ark of Taste

Raised on Pasture

Raised Without Antibiotics or Growth Hormones

Raised Humanely on a Small Farm

Grown Locally in Richland County,
South Carolina

Processed at an Animal Welfare Approved and Certified

Narragansett Heritage Turkeys- the holidays never tasted so good!

Reservations for 2019 Holiday Turkeys are begin in August!

We proudly raise  Narragansett  Heritage Turkeyswhich are listed on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's (ALBC) Conservation Priority List, as threatened. 

Our heritage turkeys take a full 28 weeks to grow on pasture, and develop their excellent flavor.  Heritage turkeys are not selected to grow abnormally large breasts.  This would interfere with their ability to
live productive outdoor lives. Expect a normal ratio of breast to dark meat.

We do collect feathers, in good condition, that are shed
on our farm.  Email us for additional information.

Doko Farm Heritage Turkeys for the 2018 Holiday Season
This year, Doko Farm is raising a small flock of Narragansett Heritage Turkeys for your holiday table. 
 
Pricing for Doko Farm's 2018 heritage turkeys is still just $10 per pound. Our processing costs have risen this year, but we are working hard to keep your price the same as last year. A $20 deposit is required to complete your reservation and the balance (total cost of your heritage turkey minus your $20 deposit) is due at pick-up.  We accept cash or check.  We are unable to accept credit cards at this time.  

Our smaller hen-sized heritage turkeys range from 5-10 pounds, and average 6 pounds. Our larger tom-sized heritage turkeys range from 10-18 pounds, and average 11 pounds. 

Once our reservations are full, we will start a waiting list for the few birds that we hold in reserve.  Each year, we hold a small number of birds back from our reservation process, just in case something goes wrong, such as a predator event.  Most years, nothing goes wrong.  Then these heritage turkeys are made available for purchase.  There is no deposit required to be on the waiting list. Please email or call to be placed on the wait list. 
        
Buckeye Heritage Chickens
Buckeye chickens are a dual purpose chicken, meaning they are raised for both meat and eggs.  They are also the only standard American breed of chicken to be entirely developed by a woman, Mrs. Nettie Metcalf, of Warren Ohio.  Buckeye chickens are active birds and have friendly and calm dispositions.  Buckeye chickens are listed on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's (ALBC) Conservation Priority List, as threatened.  

The slow growth and active life of a heritage chicken gives it something that even an organic, pasture-raised, industrial chicken lacks- Flavor!  Heritage chickens take 16 weeks to reach market weight (more than double th
at of an industrial chicken).  The rich chicken flavor and firm texture of a heritage chicken can not be duplicated and it cannot be rushed.  One bite and we think you will agree- it was definitely worth the wait!
