Happy Friday, Folks!

There are less than 2 weeks till the deadline of November 10th for ordering Thanksgiving Turkeys and, frankly, I’m afraid if you wait to order much longer, you won’t get to pick the best size bird for your clan this year!

Time is growing short to “pre-order” your special Thanksgiving Turkey(s.) Turkeys are AGAIN in SHORT SUPPLY, and the farms would like to know as soon as possible how many turkeys to reserve for us. Ordering now gives us a better chance of getting close to the size you request. Their other customers in Lancaster are lining up right now to get the best selection.

If you are not going to be around or cooking for Thanksgiving, please consider letting your friends and family know about the great family farms and their excellent turkeys. A flyer is attached to give out, or just give them my email ( so they can be in touch for more information and ordering.

For those who are ordering for the first time, here’s how it will go:

We must receive your order and IMMEDIATE deposit* between now and November 10th, along with approximately how many pounds you want, so we can put through your order. We have less than 2 weeks to get these in!

Make sure your family and friends are eating organically pastured, humanely raised, healthy turkeys from our trusted farms this year! All of what you want in a great turkey; none of what you don’t!

The BIGGEST NEWS is the farmer will thaw your turkey for Candice to pick up 2 days before Thanksgiving. BTW, he says “Freshly frozen birds are the same as fresh for flavor and texture!”

We will be bringing you Fresh (or Freshly Frozen**) Turkeys

on Tuesday, Nov 22nd from our trusted family farms (you know, the organic, grass-fed, pastured, non-GMO, etc. — the Best of the Best!)

They will cost $6.25/lb. (“after-COVID” price! L) although many farms are charging over $10/lb! You can order 10-24 lb. birds. This is the only way you can guarantee an organically pastured, humanely raised, healthy bird that looks and tastes way better than the turkeys at the supermarkets for your special gathering.

Orders will be taken from now until Thursday, November 10th – NO LATER – NO EXCEPTIONS, so don’t delay! You can order by email or phone, as long as you send us a deposit of $45 “per bird”. Please state approximate poundage when you order, and we will try to get you a bird as close to that weight as possible (within 3 lbs. larger or smaller.) We cannot order without the deposit!

Rule of Sizing: Count on (1.5 pounds) or more per person at dinner to be sure to have enough to allow for the bones (and maybe a leftover turkey sandwich or some turkey soup — Yum!)

Plan Ahead to reserve your bird(s) for the Holiday NOW.

Make your deposit by dropping off a check or cash or by PayPal (to Nancy Price – ask for info.)  Thank You!

In the meantime, be well, be thankful and eat healthy!  We give thanks for all of you.

In peace,

*The deposit is non-refundable, and all turkeys must be claimed upon our return (same day) from the farm. If you will not be available to pick up your turkey by 6:30pm or send someone in your place, we must know ahead of time, but we will not hold a turkey overnight.

**Most turkeys will be freshly frozen, meaning they will be processed and frozen (not “chilled”) a few weeks before Thanksgiving, to make sure they don’t grow too big for your preference. Ask us about methods to safely thaw the bird(s) in time for the big day. One farm will thaw your turkey for the pick-up day upon request.

Remember, buying from Family Farms that feed and pasture their animals properly and treat them humanely is not only better food for the health of you and your family, it’s also supporting those farms to help them flourish. It also sends a BIG message to the factory farm industry, that they don’t rule over our health and we won’t support their practices. IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO! SPREAD THE WORD!!! Support Family Farms!!!
