Most Thanksgiving day cooks wait until the last minute to pick up a frozen turkey from Wal-Mart for $1.40/lb, just in time for the big day.
These people are making a sad, uninformed, mistake if you ask me.
Why is this a mistake? Because that turkey was never let outside to enjoy the sunshine, chase grasshoppers, eat all kinds of plants, and get lots of good healthy exercise.
That turkey from Wal-Mart had its beak clipped so it couldn't cannibalize its brethren(really high stress environment), had the ends of its toes whacked off so it wouldn't hurt the people handling them(they have really powerful legs), was raised wing to wing with thousands of others, fed a strict diet of high protein feed to make them gain weight as fast as possible, and then likely had a long uncomfortable highway ride, huddled in a cramped cage to their ultimate demise.
I'm giving you the very best case scenario. Reality was possibly far worse when we take into account the tendency for calculated animal abuse in these operations. Also, not to mention the vaccines and drugs used to keep them on their feet so they could be sold.
No one really knows what you're serving your family when you buy from Wal-Mart.
Everybody knows how my turkeys were treated, raised, kept, etc... I'm a compassionate, transparent, husbandman and I love my animals. I'll be sending you pictures and everything.
I get them straight from the hatchery, only provide unmedicated feeds, administer no vaccinations, give them freedom to roam, slaughter them as quickly and pain free as possible right on the farm, and inject no "flavor enhancing solutions" to improve their taste(none needed when raised correctly), and they keep all their toes and beaks until the very end.
So there it is folks, order from me and you'll have a clear conscience when you give thanks on Thanksgiving day with your friends and family.
I am ordering babies on the 13th of this month, order your turkey before then to secure one. I won't have many extras, if any.
Please specify desired weight.
I am planning to process my birds the weekend before Thanksgiving so they're fresh and ready for your table.
I also plan to have them weighing about 11-20 lbs.
My asking price will be $2.99/lb.
That's a total price of $33-$60 depending on size.
