Hey Cape Codders!!!...Where are getting your Turkey this year?

I'm on the fence myself. Last few years made the trip up to Bongi's in Kingston. Good bird at a premium price. Whole foods is always an option at $2.49-2.99 for all-natural or same pre-brined, or $3.99 for heritage birds. If I went the heritage route, I'd buy local at Miss Scarlett's Farm in Yarmouthport at $4.75/lb. but I'm just not a huge fan of the heritage bird's leaner and slightly darker meat.

Sometimes I wonder if the $0.59 Butterball is the way to go and just put the extra $50-$90 in my pocket.

What say you?

  1. No to Butterball...cannot even imagine what the processing plant was like..what about a road trip to Tom's in Bolton with a stop at the winery and orchard...2 hour ride up and back..FUN...

      I hear you on Butterball. Not worthy of serious consideration tbh.

      But tell me more! I can't find a Tom's in Bolton? I did find a Bob's in Lancaster. Is that what you meant? And what winery and orchard? More info please! Sounds like a fun road trip.

        It is Bob's in Lancaster..Mom gets her turkey there each year... Bolton Orchards and Nashoba Winery..all in a little triangle..totally worth the trip this weekend..
