THANKSGIVING TURKEYS Available for pre-order! Thu, September 15, 2016

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 on Local Non-GMO Feed. The week before Thanksgiving we get over 100 calls from folks desperately searching for one of these hard-to-find birds. Online they sell for as much as $16.00/lb plus a $50+ shipping fee. This year we are accepting pre-orders for our turkeys at a pre-order price of $10.00/lb (as long as available). Reserving now means you are assured of getting a bird and makes it easier on the farm since all the birds are pre-sold and we know where they are going in advance.  Order now to reserve yours!
