Where are you getting your Turkey's from?

I recently moved out to Paoli (Ok, 2 Turkey days ago) and am wondering what options people have found to be the best for ordering a nice free-range organic bird. The *free* Turkey from the Ah-ca-me just won't do it for me. Do most order online or are there good local sources I don't know about (I assume there are). Is D'Artagnan my best bet? I would think there has to be something comparable that is local...

  1. I usually get mine (fresh-killed) at the Ardmore Farmer's market. Check out the Farmer's Market on Lancaster Ave. in Wayne. I have not been there in awhile, but I a, pretty certain they have a poultry vendor still.

      Second that. The poulterer in Wayne always provides us with excellent turkeys. The place is a zoo on the day before Thanksgiving, for good reason.

        I had some bad experiences there already unfortunately. In a perfect world, I would find a free-range, organic, heritage, etc. that I could get from a local farm in Chesco/LanCo. There has to be a way to find this right? It seems crazy to order one online while living so close to so many farms.

    2. Philadelphia Winter Harvest also has organic turkeys on offer to members.

      1. Bolton's in Silverdale, but it's probably too far for you.

          I second Bolton's. Hendricks Farms is also taking orders for turkeys. Both are convenient for Upper Bucks and MontCo residents.

        2. armstand has turkeys available to order from several local farms - free range and heritage breeds. The Headhouse farmers Market folks also are taking turkey orders

            Some how the "Fair Food F" that belonged before my post above didn't make it! They are in the RTM
