Do you know where your turkey feathers come from? When you buy from Running Bug Farm you do! My birds are cruelty free & humanely raised. They live outside 365 days a year free ranging on pasture the way Mother Nature intended. I use natural holistic methods to treat my animals & myself. Running Bug Farm is better than organic. Your purchase supports my eco farm & I thank you!
I clean my birds feathers using well water, organic soap, vinegar, & heat sterilization.
Feathers are hand packaged & labeled. Labels provide my farms info., type of bird, quantity, & size.
Feathers are from my eco farm; raised, cared for, & loved by my family. I am not a feather reseller.
Feathers are from my smoking free home, although I do heat my home exclusively with a wood stove as I am almost entirely off of the grid & this is my only source of heat.
I do not sell feathers from endangered, protected, or wild species of birds. Such as Eagle, Hawk, Owl, Falcon, Song Bird, Parrot, etc. I exclusively sell feathers only from my own humanely raised farm birds on my small eco farm.
