About DLM Turkey Reservations

A Better Bird

Non-GMO DLM Free-Range Turkey


There's something to be said about our Non-GMO DLM Free-Range Turkey, and how two local friends—Dorothy Lane Market and Bowman & Landes Turkeys— have come together for many years to raise our very own flock. Not only is it free-range, antibiotic free, and fed a 100% vegetarian diet, but it's also Non-GMO Project Verified. Why did we take that step a few years back to get the Non-GMO Project Verified certification? Because we believe it was the right thing to do.

5 Things to Love About our non-GMO DLM Free-Range Turkey

1. Locally Raised

When you visit Bowman & Landes Turkeys in New Carlisle, Ohio, you're greeted by the fall brilliance of splashy colors. DLM has partnered closely with Bowman & Landes to raise our turkeys for many years.

2. Non-GMO Project Verified

Two years ago, we proudly announced a huge DLM Difference when it comes to our turkey. We debuted our Non-GMO Project Verified DLM Free-Range Turkey. This was the result of a lengthy, ongoing process we embarked on with Bowman & Landes involving farm audits and documentation of procedures to make sure our flocks were raised Non-GMO Project Verified.

3. Free Roaming

Our turkeys can roam in outdoor greenspace if they wish where they can bob and weave with curiosity. Carl Bowman says that this isn't just to make a more flavorful turkey, but it provides the conditions for a healthier one.

“When it comes to flavor and raising a great-tasting bird, there are no shortcuts—no GMOs, antibiotics, or growth stimulants. Just turkey raised the way it was done 50 years ago.”

- Jack Gridley, DLM's Longtime Meat Connoisseur

4. No Antibiotics or Hormones

DLM Turkeys have always been antibiotic and hormone free. They are fed a diet that in addition to being non-GMO, also is 100% vegetarian.

5. It Tastes Good

As Carl Bowman told us on a past visit, "A happy turkey is a healthy turkey... We translate a healthier turkey to a more flavorful one." We couldn't agree more.
