Podcast Ep. 36: Butterball – A Thanksgiving Special
Farm Traveler Podcast Ep: 36
There is a high chance you will be eating some turkey on Thanksgiving day.
And there is also a pretty high chance that turkey is produced from our guest today: Butterball!
We have the pleasure of interviewing two people that work at Butterball: Rebecca Welch, senior brand manager; and Wellie Jackson, a Butterball contract grower. Rebecca talks to us about the history of Butterball, the Turkey Talk-Line and much more. Wellie explains what it's like to be a contract grower, the process of raising turkeys, misconceptions, and some great Thanksgiving cooking advice.
Thanks to Butterball for being on this Thanksgiving episode! And thank you to all our listeners, we are so glad you're here and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
