BACK TO THE BEGINNING:Wondering where we got our name “Dakota 44”? It goes back to our start, when 44 family farmers came together with a shared vision to blend tradition with innovation in the Dakotas. This meant bringing the roots in higher standards and home-grown quality that have existed on the farm to the production process, as well.

A STATE-OF-THE-ART PROCESS: So, our group of turkey farmers decided to build their own processing facility from the ground up. One designed featuring extensive food safety practices and with advanced technology and sustainability. What’s more, our farmers could be sure their belief in humane animal treatment wouldn’t end on the farm. Today, the Huron, South Dakota–based facility continues to raise the bar on how food is produced.

A CLOSER LOOK AT OUR FARMERS: Many of the family turkey farmers behind Dakota 44 belong to independent Hutterite communities located in the Midwest. These self-sufficient colonies are largely sustained through agriculture, but often manufacture other goods, too. Want to learn more about our farmers, and where our turkey comes from?
