Republican Delegate Steve Landes (25th District) went off the beaten path Wednesday, September 21. He toured farms in three different counties hoping to gain some insight on how agribusiness works in Virginia.

Kelly Turkeys USA in Crozet was Landes’ final stop of the day. He spoke with owner Carrie Culver about what makes this turkey farm unique.

“I live in a farm community so I get to visit farms, but I wanted to talk to and meet with farmers that are doing unique and different things related to agriculture. For Kelly Turkeys, this is a different type of bird product that most poultry operations don't have,” Landes said.

Landes toured Kelly Turkeys USA’s harvesting facility to see how the farm distributes their turkeys.

He also visited farms in Rockingham and Augusta counties.
