Heritage Turkeys for Thanksgiving

midget-white-turkey.jpgThanksgiving is just around the corner, so it’s not too early to order your turkey.

As in recent years, you can order a heritage bird from Heritage Foods, who will ship your turkey directly to your home. Or visit Mary’s Turkeys for a list of locations carrying their heritage, free-range, and free-range organic birds. Several Bristol Farms markets in the Los Angeles area carry Mary’s Turkeys, but you may wish to call your local store to confirm. Mary’s also delivers, too.

For information about independent farmers who raise heritage turkeys, visit the information page on Slow Food USA’s site. Also be sure to take note of the specific turkey breeds that have been added to Slow Food’s Ark of Taste (scroll down to find the turkeys under “meat and poultry” on the list of Ark products).

If we learn of more local sources in the coming days we’ll share the information here.
