Heritage turkey in New York or NYC??

avocadolily Nov 8, 2013 10:55 PM

Anyone have good suggestions where to get heritage turkeys (authentic single breed ones) in the NYC-metro area?
If not, what good alternatives are there--I'm looking to try turkeys of a different taste profile & that are sustainable.

    I have gotten wild turkey several times from Ottomanelli UES. It's pricey and they're not huge, but they have more dark meat (which I like). BTW year-round you can get fresh off-the-bone turkey sandwiches--including darkmeat at the Viand coffee shop on Madison near 61st.
