Are you affiliated with Butterball Turkey?

We are not at this time, and we do not have insight into the business of Butterball Turkey. However, we were affiliated with Butterball Turkey several decades ago. Leo Peters, founder of Butterball® Farms, invented Butterball Turkey and Butterball® Butter. When he sold the name and patents covering Butterball Turkey, he made sure to retain the rights to license back the Butterball name for use with premium butter. Leo was very active in the business until he passed away in 1995.

Mark Peters, Leo’s son, is now CEO of Butterball® Farms, Inc.
