Turkeys out on pasture.It’s hard to imagine Thanksgiving is almost here.  The couple of inches of snow this morning make it more plausible, but it still seems like just yesterday it was swimming weather.  They say that happens when you get older, so maybe that’s my issue.  On the other hand, I am thankful for the snow to cover the mud and brown blah of late fall.  I think the function of November is to make us thankful for winter.

That brings me to winter food.  Namely, turkeys.  Our big white birds don’t seem to mind the cold as long as they can get their feet up out of it now and then.  They like to roost above the chill.  They are out of green grass, but turkeys are amazingly good foragers–even the broad breasted ones we have.  They are much more resourceful than chickens.  However, I imagine they are ready to look for warmer pastures.  That is where you come in.  They need new homes in someone’s oven or freezer.  They have had plenty of grass and GMO free feed, so they are flavorful, juicy, and good for you.  This is turkey that will leave you feeling full and happy rather than full and peculiar (that’s the best nice word we have for our experience).

The turkeys should weigh in around 15-18 pounds.  They will be processed the Monday or Tuesday before Thanksgiving so they are fresh for the holiday.  The cost is $3.50/lb.   Let us know soon to make sure you get one of these scrumptious birds!
