Pelleh Poultry - Bethel Creamery- Schedule a Personal Farm Tour
Jews were clearly farmers and shepherds in Biblical times. The Bible describes a people that lived in close contact with the animals they raised and tended, and sets out a body of law, kashrus, that includes strict rules on slaughtering and inspection to ensure that the meat they ate enhanced their spiritual well-being as well as nourished their bodies.
Today, Pelleh’s business is thriving. In addition to their popular chicken business, Rabbi Refoel and his son, Eliezer, process duck and squab (young pigeons bred for meat) in their 6,000-square-foot facility, and create delicious products like duck cherry sausage, duck fry “bacon,” and rillettes, a rustic, savory French spread that’s delicious on baguettes, toast points, or toasted bagels.
The Franklins also produce minimally-processed organic milk, rich “Icelandic skyr” and Greek yogurt at their growing dairy operation, Bethel Creamery, situated on their 135-acre farm in Swan Lake, NY. Only milk from their own herd of Jersey and Jersey/Holstein cross cattle is used, and milk from the outside is never allowed on the premises. Combined with complete control over feed and product cycles, this ensures that their milk products are always kosher for Passover and inherently cholov yisroel, (meaning it is handled only by Jews during critical production phases).
Pelleh Poultry is proud to use famed Joe Jurgielewicz and Sons as their sole Long Island (Pekin) duck suppliers, ensuring a “heritage breed” taste and perfect meat-to-fat ratio. Pelleh’s products are kosher certified by Rav Dovid Miller and the Orthodox Union (OU).
