Online Turkey Reservations will close Tuesday November 20th, at 8am .
(Don’t worry, we will have plenty of Turkey’s in the store for you to pick from!)
What size turkey is right for you?
A great place to start is 1 pound for each person. This gives everyone about 10 ounces of cooked turkey!
Will you have turkeys for other holidays?
We will have frozen turkeys available after Thanksgiving, but we will not stock any more fresh turkeys. We also sell and encourage pre-orders on the following: duck, beef rib roast, lamb, game hens, spiral hams, and salmon.
Fresh vs. Frozen?
A Fresh Turkey has never been at a temperature below 26° F since turkey meat begins to freeze at that temperature. Fresh turkeys are stored below 38-40° for optimum food safety. A Frozen turkey has been cooled to 0°. Most frozen turkeys have been “flash frozen,” which means the turkey was quickly taken to a frozen state to ensure optimum freshness when thawed.
...but, it seems a little frozen?
Fresh turkeys that have been deep-chilled can seem a little hard on the surface even though they haven't been frozen. The surface stiffness helps bring you the freshest turkey!
Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating Program was developed with the animal’s welfare as the primary focus. But what does farm animal welfare mean? GAP defines animal welfare as 3 overlapping components that together with good management and genetics, contribute to good farm animal welfare:
Health & Productivity – raising animals so that they’re healthy and productive with good quality feed and water, shelter, and free from disease, illness and injury (but treating any animals that get sick).
Natural Living – raising animals in environments that allow them to express their natural behaviors effectively – both indoors and outdoors
Emotional Well Being – raising animals in environments that provide them the ability to be inquisitive, happy and playful and minimize boredom, frustration, fear, stress and pain, as much as possible.
By defining animal welfare, this helps us to identify and improve farming and ranching systems and practices. We then translate these systems into standards for each species under our GAP 5-Step® Animal Welfare Rating program.
