NO. 1: Minnesota is the No. 1 producer of turkeys in the U.S. Around 600 turkey farms raise 40 million to 42 million birds a year.
The easy-to-navigate site offers a wealth of information about the state’s No. 1 ag industry.

The Minnesota Turkey Growers Association and the Minnesota Turkey Research and Promotion Council have revised their website,, to provide more online resources and to make it more user-friendly for farmers, educators and consumers.

“The new website has been a strategic goal of ours for almost a year now,” says Paul Kvistad, Minnesota Turkey Growers Association president. “The new website’s modern design allows for easy navigation and provides readily available, valuable content for those seeking information about the Minnesota turkey industry.”

MORE TO SHARE: MTGA’s revised website offers information for farmers, educators and consumers. From news to recipes, from equipment to job listings –– information is just a click away.

Working with Image Digital Marketing, the organizations added a classified section containing job postings and equipment for sale. Farmers, industry stakeholders and the general public are able to post a classified advertisement. The goal is to offer a one-stop shop for turkey farmers and industry stakeholders.

“Working in the agriculture sector offers so many opportunities for growth,” Kvistad says. “We want to encourage more people to enter this rewarding career path.”

The website is also designed with the general public in mind. The site includes classroom materials for educators as well as nutrition information and recipes for consumers.

“Turkey and Minnesota’s industry are the best kept secret,” says Sarah Anderson, executive director of the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association. “We want to share Minnesota’s locally grown success story by providing our teachers with content and helping families learn about turkey’s exceptional nutritional benefits.”

Members of the organizations are also given access to a member portal that contains exclusive benefits to stay up to date on happenings within the industry.

MTGA is a trade association representing more than 600 turkey farms across the state, many which are multigenerational family farms. MTGA also represents turkey processors and other industry stakeholders.
