ARK Farms welcomes the newest members of our farm family. Thanks to North Mississippi's super turkey raiser, Monroe Sparks, the farm is now home to over a dozen turkeys!
These turkeys will be allowed free rein on the farm and will wander their 54 acre home to forage for nature's treats. In the evenings they will come home to the corral to hang out with the rest of our feathered flock.
Today they are in an enclosed space beside the barn so they can get used to their new surroundings and figure out where feeding happens. In a few days they will be turned out to explore, though they currently seem most interested in their chicken and duck cousins!
We are so grateful for the opportunity to host such noble birds. They are pretty gentle, and we are hoping that they will come to love the farm as much as we do. Come out and see the turkeys!
