In 1933, Grand pop Bolton purchased the farm in Silverdale, PA. The 28 acre property was initially purchased to raise chickens. In 1945, he started raising a few turkeys and soon after decided to only raise turkeys. He worked everyday up until 1997- at the age of 93. His son Charles took over the farm in 1978. Today the farm is in its third generation and is being managed by his son Todd alongside Charles.
The farm market began in 1989 as a roadside stand. In 2015, we outgrew our original building and expanded into our current market which is managed and operated by Torrie, Charles' daughter.
This is truly a small family business.
We raise about 10,000 turkeys each year. We have our own incubator and hatch all of our poults (baby turkeys). We raise them on the farm until maturity. We raise all of our turkeys naturally, feeding them an all-natural, antibiotic free diet, consisting of crops we grow ourselves. We raise and process all of our turkeys on the farm and only sell through our market.
When we opened the first market in 1989, we then started raising chickens naturally like our turkeys, from start to finish.
Shortly after we also began to raise our own Black Angus beef, without antibiotics or growth hormones. They are grass and corn fed, and are able to graze a majority of the year (weather permitting).
To this day, we still raise all of our own meat on our Bucks County farm, just like Grand pop did 80+ years ago!
We love what we have and we hope you do too.
The four generational Bolton family!
