Pelican Rapids, MN (WDAY TV) - An Otter Tail County town known for its turkey production is benefiting from the increase in demand for turkey bacon.

West Central Turkeys has increased production of the product at its Pelican Rapids plant. A popular marketing campaign and the surge in health conscious consumers are a couple of reasons for the boost in demand.

It is a source of pride for the Larry's Supermarket in Pelican Rapids. The turkey bacon is popular, and customers love that a local store can sell a product made by many of the plant workers who also shop at the grocery store.

Phil Stotesbery, Larry’s Supermarket: “People are more health conscious these days and this is one alternative to go to healthier foods.”
