Turkey Update

Well, the turkey processor in Bowling Green called a few days ago to both move our appointment and to raise the price. After speaking with several folks about it, we found a plucker in Little Rock and have decided to do the processing ourselves.

So....we'll have FRESH turkeys for Thanksgiving! I think they'll be much better this way. Fresh is always better, and so is keeping it local. We'll process the birds the weekend before, and store them in my neighbor's walk-in refrigerator until pick-up. For those of you who've ordered a bird to ship, we'll do those somewhere around Nov. 12th and freeze them prior to shipping.

If you have a problem with this, and would like your turkey still USDA processed, please let me know and we'll try to work something out. If not, feel free to come to the farm the weekend before the holiday to pick out your bird and/or help out! It's sure to be a learning experience for all!

In the meantime, we still have about 15 birds available. Please send a $25 deposit to the address at the top right of the page to make a reservation. Also, many folks have been asking how much they'll weigh. To be honest, I don't know. But there are plenty of hens out there, which will give us a nice range I estimate to be between 8 and 20 lbs. Reservations secure your size preference as well.
