Esbenshade Turkey Farm, Oldest Turkey Farm in America, since 1858

Established in 1858 and well known as America’s oldest turkey farm, Esbenshade Turkey Farm is a true Lancaster County original, famous for their moist and tender meat.

At 91 years old, the family’s patriarch Bob Esbenshade says, “I was born here. My dad was born here. My granddad was born here, and my great-granddad was born here.” The day-to-day operations are supported by the efforts of the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th generations of the Esbenshade family.

Located in the rural community of Paradise, Esbenshade Turkey Farm raises up to 8,000 Broad Breasted Whites each year.  Their cage-free turkeys are always free of growth hormones and fed an all-natural vegetarian diet mixture of corn and soy, growing to an average 10 to 30 lbs.

Esbenshade turkeys are sold FRESH during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, with pick-up at their farm or at prearranged drop-off times at Leisure Lanes  on Columbia Avenue and just off Rte 30 at the Eden Resort.

Frozen turkeys are sold throughout the year.
