These turkeys are healthy and happy birds you can feel good about putting on your Holiday table. They come from Misty Knoll Farms in New Haven VT (just northeast of Middlebury) from the same farmer who supplies Farmers To You Families with outstanding chicken. show more
Misty Knoll starts the turkeys in a large brooder house, sheltered from the elements, until they are capable of withstanding Vermont's cool nights. Then the flocks are moved to open barns with plenty of room and sunlight, whole grains and fresh water. Allowed to grow naturally to size, these turkeys are robust and meatier than other turkeys found at the supermarket - naturally grown birds take longer to mature, but the resulting flavor is well worth it.
Just before the Holidays the birds are processed on-site which means they sustain much less stress, and each bird is hand inspected for superior quality.
Cooking guidelines will be included with your order.
Some very large sizes may have been frozen for a short period of time. Most large, and all smaller and medium sizes are processed and shipped fresh.
