Free Range, Heritage, Organic – Let’s Talk Turkey!

If you are interested in trying something different on Thanksgiving but still want to maintain the tradition of serving turkey, why not try purchasing a turkey direct from the farm.  There are more options when buying direct from the farm:  Free-range turkeys are raised humanely in the open air and sunshine, and are never administered antibiotics or hormones to manipulate growth. Heritage turkeys are breeds that have been isolated since the early 20th century, and are leaner and richer in flavor than industrial birds.  And of course both can be raised organically.   To help you find a local farms that may sell specialty turkeys, we have, of course, provided you with a map!
