Diestel Turkey announces non-GMO project verification
Diestel Turkey Ranch received official word from the Non-GMO Project that its family of natural, organic, and heirloom whole turkeys has achieved verified status. This Non GMO Project verification will apply to all Diestel organically raised birds as well as the Diestel natural turkeys raised with non GMO feed. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for genetically modified organism (GMO) avoidance.
“We are thrilled to be one of the few meat producers to obtain this certification. We have always been committed to our customer’s knowledge of what’s in and not in our products,” said Jason Diestel, a fourth-generation family farmer. “As we build support for this movement we are committed to expanding this certification across our products.”
Known for its award-winning organic and all-natural turkeys, Diestel has become one of the most trusted brands of whole turkeys, turkey sausage, ground turkey, turkey burgers, and deli meats. Diestel turkeys and turkey specialties, deli meat, and pre-sliced deli turkey are available at select grocers and natural food retailers in the western US, including the Texas and Colorado markets.

Diestel Family Turkey Ranch is a family-owned and operated sustainable ranch, located in Sonora, California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Since 1949, the Diestel family has overseen all aspects of turkey farming operations, including raising the birds, milling the feed on-site, processing, and cooking select turkey products. The family offers a complete line of sustainably farmed, turkey products that are all-natural, with no artificial ingredients. In addition to the natural Diestel turkeys, the family produces certified organic products, including Diestel Organic (also known as Heidi’s Hens) and the Heirloom Collection.
