I see a lot of folks talking about raising turkeys for holiday dinners and such, but does anyone eat ground turkey in place of (or in addition to) ground beef? I'm wondering about the practicality of raising turkeys as a major meat source (along with chickens, of course) for a small homestead. One can only eat so many roasted turkeys, after all, and it seems ground turkey is a popular item at the grocery store. Is ground turkey generally made from the whole bird? Or is it more often made from what's left after splitting off the breast? Do poultry processors even offer the option? For those who raise birds for market, do you have buyers for "everyday turkey", beyond the holiday dinner crowd? Tell me, turkey people. Is raising turkeys a viable alternative to raising beef for a small farm family?
