The average turkey lives a relatively short life, rarely making it past three years old. This fact makes the annual National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation pardoning ceremony a significant event for the turkey community.
Preparing a turkey for Thanksgiving is usually the most cumbersome task of the holiday, often becoming a chore that is annually passed off among relatives. The Volk family of Turlock has been easing consumers' turkey cooking concerns for years through their company's trussing and temperature devices. A family owned business that has expanded internationally with offices from Brazil to England and a manufacturing facility in Turlock, Volk Enterprises has made its mark in the meat industry.
The holiday season often motivates individuals to give back to their community by heading down to their local soup kitchen or homeless shelter, but the Martinez family of Turlock is taking a more direct approach by hosting their own food drive.
