Where to buy fresh turkey in/near Barrie

Hello, I know its getting late, but of course I've left it to the last minute to try to order turkey. I would prefer a fresh turkey, and need a big one. I am looking in and around 11-13+kg/24-30+lb. I could drive further then Barrie if necessary, but I'd love to find somewhere here.
The Zehrs on big bay point road does not take preorders, the zehrs on cundles does preorders but won't have turkeys that size and won't tell me the largest size they will have available, costco won't do preorders, foodland only has 16lb fresh turkeys.
Has anyone got a fresh turkey from costco and seen what sizes are typically available? I mean I could just go early when they are available and hope for the best.
Thanks in advance!
Hi TeRReT! There must be Poultry Farms in your neck of the woods! I know TO is further south but you could always try Bruno's Fine Foods. My cousin gets hers there every Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Another alternative would be to buy two turkeys. I've done this many times and it works just as well.
I posted above but am back to post again. I always buy a frozen butter basted turkey and have a preference for Butter Balls. We have eaten my turkey's for years but have also eaten at my cousin's house. Ironically, my turkey always tastes juicer ....... according to my family. Just saying .......
