Where are you getting your turkey?
I'm trying to decide where to get my turkey this year. I like a heritage turkey but have had to have them shipped. I would like to go with a locally raised bird. Heritage would still be best but I would go with free range organic white turkey if it is local and high quality.
I got an email around this time last year from the Fair Food Farmstand (where I've ordered turkeys in the past), and last year they offered these options. You picked a weight range for your bird and they would deliver one within that range.
Naturally-raised broad-breasted whites from Koch's Turkey Farm in Tamaqua, PA. Like all of our turkeys, these are raised without the use of hormones and antibiotics, free-roaming in a barn.
Weight Range: 8-12 lbs; 12-16 lbs; 16-30 lbs; 20-24 lbs; 24-28 lbs; 28-32 lbs.
Organic broad-breasted white turkeys from Spring Water Farm (the same farm as our Dutch Meadows raw milk!). These turkeys are raised on pasture and fed Certified Organic feed.
Weight Range: 10-14 lbs; 14-19 lbs; 19-22 lbs.
Heritage Breed Turkey
These Heritage Breed Turkeys are Red Bourbons, a breed of turkey first developed right here in Pennsylvania in the 19th century. They are raised on pasture at Griggstown Quail Farm in Princeton, NJ.
Weight Range: 7-10 lbs; 10-14 lbs.
