  Schuylkill County's own Koch's Turkey Farm will be featured on CBS News in early February, thanks to their no-antiobiotic policy in raising their turkeys. Read the story here in the Pottsville Republican in the 1/24/10 edition. Anchor Katie Couric and her staff learned of the healthy antibioticc free process at Koch's and visited the farm last week for a news report.

Founded by Lowell and Elizabeth Koch in 1953, the small original farm has evolved into a fully integrated farm with 45 turkey houses, a hatchery, and an all natural feed mill. Here is what their website says about how they raise their turkeys: We feed our flocks a vegetarian d...
