Thanksgiving Turkeys

thanksgiving-turkey  turkeys

We sell turkeys fresh the week of Thanksgiving to those who pre-order.  Pre-ordering usually begins in October. 

We raise our turkeys on the range. They live inside for the first several weeks of their lives until they are large enough to survive on their own. Then they live outdoors with our chickens – they have free choice non-GMO feed, and can eat fresh grass and bugs. We move them to fresh grass approximately every 10 days, so they never live on mud. They live a very low-stress life. All of these factors combine to give them a superior flavor. The cost is $4.50/lb.

The toms should be between 20-28 lbs. and the hens should be between 13- 20 lbs. Please consider using one of our larger frozen chickens if these sizes do not work for you.

We do not reserve sizes, or hen vs. tom. The turkeys are on a first come, first serve basis.  In all the past 6 years that we have sold turkeys this way it has always worked out well – everyone got a turkey to their liking.

We offer fresh turkeys available for pick up on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  Pick up time is from 5-7pm. Turkeys come ready for you to put in your oven, but do not include giblets because it’s too much for us to handle on slaughter day.

(Sorry, but we do not have space to freeze your turkey. If you would like a turkey for Christmas, please make accommodations in your home freezer, and plan to pick up a fresh turkey on the above dates.)

A $25 non-refundable deposit is required for each bird reserved.

To order a turkey, fill out the form below. You can either mail in your deposit check or drop it off (CSA members may use Summer or Winter credits).  Thanks for your support and we hope that you and your family enjoy!
