400g (14oz.) of free-range farmed ground turkey mince from New Zealand. This ground turkey contains both breast and thigh meat and is extremely lean but at the same time, the dark thigh meat provides the perfect balance for juiciness. Turkey meat is known for its high protein low-fat values. If you are looking for the highest quality of free-range turkey - this is the best. Use this turkey mince for meatballs or burger patties. Use plenty of olive oil when cooking.
New Zealand free-range, and open pasture-raised white turkey - probably the first in Japan. The free-range turkeys spend their days roaming around fresh green paddocks, pecking and nibbling away as they explore the farm as nature intended. At night the turkeys are moved into the sheds to prevent exposure to harsh weather conditions and protect them from predators. It goes without saying that the birds were never treated with antibiotics or growth hormones. Compared to factory-farmed conventional turkeys, our turkeys are raised for 3 weeks longer.
The farm is called Canter Valley and is a family-owned business located in North Canterbury, New Zealand. The welfare of the turkeys is a top priority and the family farm maintains the highest level of farming practices. They hold certification for free-range animal welfare practices and are certified by FREPNZ (Free Range Egg and Poultry New Zealand).

Fresh, high quality turkey. Highly recommended
Very easy to cook, mild flavour, goes well in any dish, a nice alternative to chicken.
Very healthy and awesome taste!
I don't know what I would do without Horizon Farms or this product! I'm an American living on a military base in Japan and I'm so thankful I can get good quality meat here. This turkey is delicious, I make meatballs and they taste amazing. Will order every time!!
Versatile product that's healthy and tastes great!
