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.

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.
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.
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
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.
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.
