Hey So. New Englanders...where are you buying your Thanksgiving Turkey this year?

Anyone have a favorite market, farm stand, or web site for turkey? What do you prefer.....fresh, frozen, organic, free-range, or heritage?

  1. Outpost Farm in Holliston.

    1. Highland Park Market where we have for years -- fresh Plainville Farms turkey.

      1. I'll be getting my free-range Tofurkey from Trader Joe's, as usual.

        1. If I can get up to Duxbury, I'll get my turkey at Bongi's. Very good, non-injected turkeys. Not the strange yellow color of a lot of other turkeys. If not, I've had great luck ordering a fresh Bell & Evans turkey from Windfall Market in Falmouth. Roasted one two years ago and it was delicious.

            Free range fresh turkey from a farm 5 miles down the road. YUm!!!

              I get my Turkeys from Bongi's every year and agree they are great birds.

              Edited to add: It is worth mentioning that you can't order an uncooked Bongi's Turkey, you have to wait in line starting the Sunday before Thanksgiving.

                Picked up my 26 pounder at Bongi's today. $3.29 per pound. In the fridge after a "dry brine" as I type. Mmmmmmmmm.........

            2. I'll likely buy a Kosher bird from Stew Leonard's in Danbury, CT this year.
