A rare offering – Fresh Forest Raised Turkey Eggs! Why have you probably never seen turkey eggs before? Because only heritage turkeys are capable of reproducing naturally, and it is very rare that turkey farmers ever see eggs! Their shells are harder, with a diet supplemented with oyster shells from Fanny Bay Oysters, but they taste very similar to chicken eggs. Excellent as scrambled, they are light and fluffy so make for a wonderful addition to any baking. Turkey eggs are more nutritious than chicken eggs, and are a good source of B vitamins, and vitamins B12 and B9 (folate) in particular. They are also rich in vitamin A and iron, and provide some of your daily requirement of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc.
