When people think of the Iowa State Fair, they think of traditional fair foods like corn dogs, cheese curds, and cotton candy. If you are looking for a healthier option, look no further than a mainstay of the fair, the Iowa Turkey Federation.
Audio: Full Interview with Morgan Minnehan
Morgan Minnehan of the Iowa Turkey Federation talks to us about the thirty-six-year history of their food building at the Iowa State Fair.
Not only are the birds sourced from Iowa, but they have also been processed right here in the state. These go to make up their menu items.
Minnehan says it is a great way to make people think of using turkey in dishes they hadn’t thought of before, such as turkey tacos.
The Iowa Turkey Federation’s food building is just east of the varied industries building on the fairgrounds.
