Where to order an Amish turkey for Thanksgiving
We moved to New York from Philadelphia, where we had a ready source for Amish-raised Thanksgiving turkeys (healthy, plump, pink, organic, free range, and consequently delicious). Does anyone have good recommendations for where to go in Manhattan to order / buy one of these birds? Your recommendations are received with gratitude!
Heritge Foods USA (based in Brooklyn but sources out of State) has heritage turkeys, I've used them the last several years and the birds have been fantastic. Not Amish but they are organically, free range raised, and breeds trying to be brought back from the "brink". A mass produced broad brested white can't even compare to these.
I'm fairly certain both Ottomanelli's and Lobel's do Amish-raised turkeys. We have a small family so we only order the breast which is why we can never order a heritage turkey (only come whole) but the turkeys I've been ordering from Ottomanelli's for the last several years are always delicious and juicy.
