White Holland's originating in Mexico, were brought to Europe in the 1500's , first documented in England in the early 1800's, and accepted into the Standard of Perfection in the U.S. in 1874 - a very old variety of turkey. Because of their wide breasts and short legs they were originally an important commercial bird in this country in the early part of the twentieth century but have been replaced in that category by faster growing and larger varieties. Today's White Holland's are very rare and kept by very few exhibition breeders.

 

We are no longer shipping turkeys to Alaska.
