Where can I get a fresh turkey for Thanksgiving?

  • 1

It's that time of year again... my favorite holiday of the year!

I'm looking for places to buy a fresh whole turkey - no hormones, not injected with sodium whatsit, nothing. Just the feathers off and in a bag. We used to get fresh turkeys from an Amish farmer when we lived in the Midwest, and I've been hooked ever since.

I'm looking for a smallish bird - about 10lbs or so. Planning on smoking or deep frying it, but haven't committed to either yet.

Can any 'hounds guide me in the right direction? Some potential sources include Pete's Fine Meats, and Revival Meats, but I have not looked into these yet. If you know of any butchers/stores/farms let me know.

Thanks!

  1. Guy's Meat Market on OST is another possibility. Not sure they'll have it but worth a call.
