Last fall we covered Slow Food Russian River’s Heritage Turkey Project to encourage the production of endangered breeds. The three-year old program partners with 4-H and Future Farmers of America to get kids in the region involved in raising the turkeys.

This year, the program is documented beautifully by photographer Lisa Hamilton, on the Atlantic Monthly’s food section.

A good time to remind everyone that, while they are super popular and often sell out by Thanksgiving Day itself, it is not too late to get a heritage bird! Go to localharvest.org to find producers near you.
