Slow Food's Ark project supports high-quality, small-scale food production and helps the small producer develop markets while protecting endangered foods from industrial-agricultural standardization. It protects biodiversity in our food supply and promotes sustainable agriculture. And finally, in line with Slow Food's manifesto, it champions the art of taste and the right to pleasure. So products worthy of the Ark must be traditional, endangered and taste good.
There are other small farms out there, working hard to bring heritage turkeys back to commercial life. Some in Kansas and New York as well as Oklahoma, Maine, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, Illinois, Oregon and Tennessee.
