Turkey Valley Farms
The Birds Eyes view
Turkey Valley Farms purchased the former Iowa Turkey Products in August of 2004 after a fire destroyed the Iowa Turkey Products production facility on December 20th, 2003 in Postville, Iowa. The decision was made to re-locate to Marshall, Minnesota purchasing the former Heartland facility. The decision was made to do a demolition and re-construction with the end results being a processing plant with 110,000 square feet where they would process whole birds, bone-in breast, fresh and frozen turkey, tray-pack products and deboned breasts and thigh.
