    Several stores carry Murray's organic fresh killed turkeys (including both P&M and Nica's on Orange St. We've been buying these for years and they are absolutely wonderful.

      ditto on Gozzi's
      been going there for 20 years -
      alot of local groceries will get them for you in the last 4-5 years if it is too far to go pick up on your own

        If you haven't found anything yet, Cedar HiIl Farm in Orange put the turkey sign out this week. The birds are by pre-order only; they're free range, raised from chick-hood in Orange with no added hormones. $3.65 per pound, pickup on November 21. Call 203-795-4531 or e-mail sbespuda at optimum dot net. We've had his chickens, and they're very good; we're trying his turkey for the first time this year.

            The farmer's market on Saturdays at Wooster Square in New Haven generally includes a vendor who will take orders for turkeys around this time of year, for delivery the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

                I got a great turkey there last year. If I were cooking this year, I'd do it again.

                You have to call ahead to reserve a bird of the size you want.
