Sustainable Thanksgiving Turkey

I’m hosting my first Thanksgiving this year for a group of 18 people. Granted, only 14 will be having turkey, as the rest are vegetarian. I’m interested in, at the very least, researching a reputable farm/company to purchase a sustainable/local turkey from. I’m located in the city, so a delivery option would be ideal.

If anyone has any suggestions, they’re much appreciated! If it proves too much of a hassle, I will likely order directly from Whole Foods. Thanks!

    Last year local sustainable turkey farmers took orders at Green City Market. Hopefully they will do that again this year.

      You might be a little late. Most places accept orders in June for a November order.

      Let us know how you do.

        ditto delk.

        Try calling Tom to see if he has any available.
