Sonoma County 4-H Heritage Turkey Project
Launched in Sonoma County in 2006, the Heritage Breeds Club has raised more than 2400 turkeys. The kids are in charge of the project; buying their own feed, saving breeding pairs, and hatching healthy birds. Chefs from all over the Bay Area have become fans and pitch in on Transformation Day. The project has brought awareness to our community, and farmers of all generations, about the value of biodiversity and supports the future of family farms.
Slow Food Russian River
Throughout the year, we provide educational tours and events showcasing the best Sonoma County has to offer in good, clean, fair agriculture and food. Our projects include the Gravenstein Apple Presidium, Community Cider Press, School Garden Projects, and, in partnership with local 4-H clubs, the Heritage Turkey Project.

The Heritage Turkey Project of Slow Food Russian River and partner the 4-H heritage breeds club of Sonoma County has brought awareness to our community, our farmers, and our future farmers about biodiversity. When you buy your food locally, you support family farms and local farmland for future generations. If you’re interested in learning more about heritage breeds, the Livestock Conservancy is a great resource.
The 4-H heritage breeds club was launched in 2006, and they have raised approximately 200 birds per year since then. The kids are now in charge of the project and buying their own feed, and some are saving breeding pairs and hatching healthy local birds, while they learn more about breeding and raising turkeys. Jim “Duck Man” Reichardt continues to help with Turkey Transforming each year, and chefs from all over the Bay Area purchase these delicious birds for their Thanksgiving menu.
The Heritage Turkey project is open to 4-H members 9 years of age or older with either a recommendation from their current club’s poultry leader or with intermediate poultry knowledge and experience with brooding young birds. For more information about the club please contact Catherine Thode cthode(at)pacbell.net and (707)829-0766.
