Where to get organic turkey breast

What's the best sort of "organic, free range, local, good for the world, good for you..." turkey breast (pre-cooked, preferably), that one can find in the bay area? (Berkeley or Oakland in particular).

I've been getting the "all-natural, free-range, house-roasted" stuff at Berkeley Bowl, but I don't know where they get it, and it's not certified organic. I've never seen anything like this at a farmers market, but maybe the Saturday-only meat people at the Berkeley market have something (I haven't been to the Sat-market recently)?

All in all, high quality organic non-specialty poultry seems more confusing than beef, for some reason. Thanks for any help!

  1. If anybody has organic turkey parts, Whole Foods probably would. You might call Magnani.

    1. Willie Bird (turkey producer in Santa Rosa) sells boneless smoked turkey breasts. I know they're free-range, but you'll have to check to see if they're organic. I got an organic turkey from them for Thanksgiving and it was great.

      1. Paul Hain down in the Saratoga area (Actually he's even further south, near Hollister) sells whole Turkeys from his farm. But, it's limited (i'm always too late). He goes to the Saratoga farmers market...and his chicken supply is now up, so he should be there every Sat till early Fall.
