Get your turkey orders in folks. McFarlan's Market knows their meat and fowl. They are featuring fresh turkeys from Koch’s Turkey Farm - All-naturally raised - NO hormones - NO stimulants - NO antibiotics - for your Thanksgiving Day dinner. Taste the difference! Koch’s Turkey Farm is a true family farm that values the traditional standard of our Pennsylvania Dutch Heritage. Roscoe and Emma Koch first started raising turkeys on the family farm in 1939. The Koch’s Turkey Farm was founded by their son Lowell and his wife Elizabeth in 1953. The third generation of the Koch family, Duane, Barb, Pam, and Beth, took over operations in the mid 1990's. Their All-Natural approach to raising turkey is the reason that Koch's turkeys taste as good as they do.
