Minnesota has long been the turkey capital in the U.S. and some would argue in the world. In 1939, Minnesota's turkey farmers gathered together to form the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association.
Since then, Minnesota has consistently ranked #1 in U.S. turkey production. Every year Minnesota turkey farmers raise 40-42 million birds.
A home-grown commodity, Minnesota boasts the largest number of independent turkey farmers in the nation.
Minnesota is home to three locally-owned operators who bring turkeys from the farm to the supper table.
Minnesota is also home to Select Genetics - the country's largest turkey hatchery - which is part of a collection businesses focused on STEM innovation.
Our 600 turkey farms and stakeholders, generate over $1 billion in economic activity for Minnesota and provide more than 26,000 jobs.
