Bates Turkey Farm hatched, literally, in June of 1923. That’s over 90 years we’ve been in the turkey business. It began the day Aunt Mamie Bates gave her nephew, W.C. Bates, Sr. and his new wife, Helen, nine turkey eggs as a wedding present. Since then, four generations of our family have operated the farm with one purpose, which is to produce the finest turkey to grace a table. Bates turkeys are FREE RANGE, grown right here in Alabama the old-fashioned way. Our turkeys are grown to their full-breasted best, in a stress free environment under the cool shade of pecan groves by the shores of a small lake. Our farm is located in Logan, Alabama, just off I65 at exit 142.
