Today, they are the turkey experts—dedicated to responsibly supplying the highest quality products with the highest level of customer service. Whether you want classic, creative or you are catering to the masses, Butterball’s diversified product lines, Butterball and Carolina Turkey, guarantee value, quality and taste at every price point.


Hometown Provisions/Mellinger Foods has been distributing this product line since the 90s.  The Butterball turkey was introduced in 1954, the product named for its broad breast and plump, round shape.

In 2006, these two identities merged to become Butterball, LLC, owners of a beloved consumer and foodservice brand, dedicated to bringing people together to celebrate occasions great and small.
