Frank Reece, the founder & owner of the producer of these great heritage birds explains:
"Raising these animals is my labor of love. When I was eleven I entered my Jersey Black Giant Chickens and won at our county fair and I got to take them to the Kansas State Fair. At the fair, I saw my first Standard Bronze, Black Spanish, Royal Palm, Narragansett, White Holland and Bourbon Red Turkeys. I also met “Norman Kardosh, the “Turkey Man” of the poultry world, who became a good friend and teacher. He shared his vast knowledge with me and I realized I wanted to start my own flock. I bought my first trio of birds from Norman in the 50’s and have maintained and improved the flock for over the years. These are the oldest continuous strains of standard-bred heritage birds in North America. My birds breed on their own, lay well, and are good mothers. As I grow older my main concern is what is going to happen to these beautiful and magnificent heritage birds."
