Our family began range growing turkeys in 1949 on our ranch nestled in the Sierra Foothills. At Thanksgiving we sold our turkeys to the local folks who enjoyed a trip to our ranch each year.
Today we produce our turkeys and turkey products year around but, really, not much has changed... same ranch, same firm belief that our family secrets consistently produce a better tender and juicy turkey that has real old-fashioned turkey flavor and same great quality.
Most importantly, we guarantee each Diestel turkey to be raised, processed and delivered by us directly to you. After all, this has been our family tradition since 1949.

Committed to sustainability
By sustainably farming our ranch we provide the best outcome for both our human and natural environments now and into the future. We want nature to work with us, not against us, and vice-versa, so we ask ourselves, “How do we create a system that allows nature to dictate the best path”?
As a consumer, you have the right to choose products that benefit our environment. And, as a producer, we feel that it is our obligation to preserve our environment for future generations to enjoy.
Our turkey products are designed to enhance the mind, body and well-being of our customers. Our organic byproducts are composted with the same commitment to quality and enhancement goals.
Our sustainability plan focuses on providing the best outcome for both our human and natural environments now... and into the indefinite future. We are working symbiotically with nature to develop natural solutions. It's not about limiting our footprint...it's about eliminating our footprint!
