locally raised turkeys

Does anyone know of a farm in MA that raises them year round? Am looking to order one ASAP.

    1. If Duxbury isn't too far, Bongi's Turkey Roost sells turkeys. My sister has tried them for a Thanksgiving turkey and thought it was good.

      1. You could also try this great site called The Eat Well Guide:
        You type in your zip code and it lists all kinds of sustainable and organic farms, butchers, stores, and restaurants in your area. It's part of which is a non-profit group that's doing great things towards getting the word out about the alternatives to factory farms and commercial produce.
        (and, no, I don't work for them. I just think they're doing a good thing)

        1. Kate Stillman and Aidan Davin have branched off from Stillman's Farm (run by Kate's dad, Glenn) and started their own farm focusing more on livestock:
          They do raise turkeys, although last year (their first) it was only for the holidays. However, you might get in touch and see if they've got more of a year-round thing going this year. We got our Thanksgiving turkey from them last year and it was excellent.

          1. I can recommend Owen's Poultry Farm in Needham. They are just wonderful.
