Where can we get a farm-raised Thanksgiving turkey?
According to Analiese Paik, Founder and Editor of the Fairfield Green Food Guide, there are several options. “Consumers wishing to purchase pasture-raised turkeys from local farms should place orders early because they are in short supply. Orders for fresh Broad-Breasted White turkeys can be placed with Ox Hollow Farm at the Westport Farmers’ Market and picked up the Wednesday before Thanksgiving,” explains Paik. She says the most convenient option is to place an online order with Connecticut Farm Fresh Express (CTFFE), a seller of exclusively CT Grown foods. They will deliver a turkey from Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm, the largest pasture-based grower in the state. Check out fairfieldgreenfoodguide.com for the most comprehensive buying guide.
