Koch’s Turkey Farm, Tamaqua, PA: 62.4 miles

Koch’s Turkey Farm is located in Tamaqua, PA on 60 acres of farmland that have been part of the family for three generations.  In 1939, Roscoe and Emma Koch first started raising turkeys on their family farm. Koch’s Turkey Farm was founded by their son Lowell and his wife Elizabeth in 1953. Since that time the farm has grown from 2 turkey houses to 45 houses, plus a hatchery and an all-natural feed mill. Today, the farm is operated by the third generation of the Koch family.

The family is proud to raise their turkeys antibiotic-free, and to feed them an all-vegetarian diet that consists only of locally-grown corn and soybeans. Koch’s turkeys are provided access to outdoor areas with natural sunlight and fresh air.

The farm meets the Certified Humane® and The Global Animal Partnership (GAP) guidelines. GAP is a nonprofit charitable organization that brings together a diverse group of farmers, ranchers, and retailers with the common goal of improving the welfare of animals in agriculture. Koch’s is one of the few family-owned turkey farms committed to producing the cleanest, healthiest turkeys you can buy.

We offer Koch’s All-Natural Turkeys and Organic Turkeys. The All-Natural Turkeys are raised on an all-vegetarian diet of locally grown corn and roasted soybeans, milled right on the farm. They never receive antibiotics, animal by-products, fats, or expired bakery products.

The Organic Turkeys are certified by Pennsylvania Organic Certifiers. The USDA certified organic regulations require that animals are raised in living conditions accommodating their natural behaviors (like the ability to graze on pasture), fed 100% organic feed and forage, and not administered antibiotics or hormones.
