Turkeys, the alternative source of meat in North Korea. Turkeys are kept by enterprising North Korean farmers as they multiply well and provide food throughout the whole year. In the harsh North Korean winters, their large bodies will offer plenty of meat for the entire village. This rafter of turkeys was seen around Sinanju (신안주). Turkeys are increasingly kept in rural farms across the country. The other popular farm animal is goats because they are hardy, reproduce easily and will practically eat just about anything. Tourists don’t get to eat turkeys as these birds are solely for local consumption. There’s also very little information that exists regarding turkey farming. Over the years, the evolution of government policies have given farmers so much more options to grow and keep what they like.
