Thode Family Farm

Welcome to the Thode Family Farm site!


We are a small-scale, family farm operation that has grown out of our enjoyment of owning and exhibiting poultry.  Over the years we have developed a deep interest in preserving rare and heritage breed birds.  Our children are grown now, so we are are only raising a few poultry breeds for exhibition and sale (listed below).  We also raise Standard-bred Heritage Turkeys for exhibition and the holiday table.  We are located in beautiful Sonoma County, California.  Thank you for visiting our website!        

PLEASE NOTE:   We are not a walk-in business...please email or call ahead to make arrangements for purchase or viewing our birds.   Thank you!
