Looking for a high quality turkey in Montgomery County (we live in Ambler). Any suggestions?

    Merrymead brings in local organic fresh turkeys and they are good. Whole Foods is always reliable as well.

      I have had good luck the past couple years with the kosher turkeys from Trader Joe's. Saves me the trouble of brining them ...

        i've been seeing signs along 73 for fresh organic turkeys from D&M farms. i don't know anything about them, but I've been meaning to ask. this seems like a good place! :)

          I just saw the signs today all around 73 and 363. Never heard of them either but I will check them out.

          Drive to Silverdale in Bucks County and get a great bird from Bolton's!

            I second Boltons. We've gotten our birds from them for years and they're very good. I live in Lansdale (not far from Ambler) and it only takes a few minutes to get there.

                Thanks all. Took your advice: this year's turkey from Bolton's was a winner! And pies and breads from nearby Tabora Farm and Orchard also were wonderful. Ours was a memorable Thanksgiving dinner!
