For The Birds

In 2007, I was out to feature Frank Reece’s efforts to preserve native turkeys for ABC news on the Good Shepard Turkey Farm near Lindsborg, KS. Reece is only one of a handful of farmers in the country who breed native or original varieties of turkeys without growth hormones or antibiotics. This year, I shot and edited  a bigger piece featuring Reece’s operation which  aired on November 21st on the regional TV show called “That’s My Farm.” Contrary to the Butterballs, these boisterous birds do fly (a bit) and are quite friendly most of the time.
Happy Thanksgiving…

Special thanks to Mark Bernstein who helped put this one together.
