“Home of the World's Largest Turkey”

The Frazee area has long been surrounded by turkey industry.  There are several turkey farmers in the area and Frazee was (at the time the turkey statue was first built) home of a turkey processing plant. In 1984, a group of interested turkey growers and committee members met and proposed the idea of erecting a turkey statue near Frazee.  A committee was named and money was raised. Artist Shell Scott was commissioned to construct the origonal turkey.  The construction consisted of a metal frame anchored in cement.  Other materials included fiberglass, cardboard and insultation. 'Big Tom' was dedicated on August 8th, 1986, he stood 22 feet tall and cost about $20,000. Since 1986, the community of Frazee has been privileged to be called the "Home of the World's Largest Turkey". In 1990, Frazee's 'Big Tom' (as the statue was refered to) made a debut on Good Morning America.  Most of the town's citizens were present.

Due to the road construction at this time it was very hard to locate Tom Tom. But in town they have a white turkey.

Turkey Tom is pretty cool, but don’t look for him where the Roadtrippers map has him marked. He’s near a turkey farm on the south side of Frazee, not far from Hwy 10, up on a hill.
