Thanksgiving Turkey: SOLD OUT! Fri, September 13, 2013

**SOLD OUT**Thanksgiving is one of the busiest times of year at the farm. We are one of the few local farms that raise heritage breed turkeys outside on pasture and the week before Thanksgiving we get as many as 100 phone calls from folks desperately searching for one of these hard to find birds.
