I can’t believe it’s time to think about Thanksgiving, already! There’s often a lot of preparation that comes with putting together a successful Thanksgiving meal – most notably, buying a turkey! My family has been buying a farm-raised, local turkey for the last several years and I believe they actually do taste better. On top of that, some of the vendors listed below actually take the headache out of your holiday by having your fresh turkey delivered to your doorstep – along with other locally grown vegetables and sides! Here’s where you can order your holiday bird — but act fast, quantities are limited!
