Where to order a local organic turkey?

Any places around here that you can order a local, organic turkey, preferably a different breed than just the standard turkey? Been reading the book "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" and got inspired.

      I can't speak to the different breed thing, but Harrison's Poultry in Glenview has never disappointed me. I go out there from the city to get my T-G bird. Also eggs and chickens.

        We enjoyed an organic local turkey last year from Natural Direct.
        They also supplied the produce for our Thanksgiving meal and it was fresh and fantastic.

          Fantastic, locally raised, family owned place: Caveny Farms. I picked my bird up at a farmers market...the husband and wife who raised the birds were the ones working the table. Super nice people. Everyone loved the turkey. I can't say enough about them
