New England Turkey Farms
For some of us – it’s just not really the Thanksgiving season until you visit the Turkey Producer or local turkey farmer and pick out your bird. The Vermont Turkey Farmers we visited told us they see many of the same customers every year. Buying a fresh turkey may cost a little more, but the local birds are far less processed and you are supporting local Turkey farmers. Whatever you choose – enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday and join us in giving thanks for all we have here in the USA.
