Does anyone know if there's a problem with delivering fresh turkeys this year? We paid a deposit for one at the Raleigh Farmer's Market weeks ago and my wife went to the vendor's website to find out how to pick it up and this is what she found: 2007 TURKEY DISASTER! For the first time ever (and LAST time ever) we contracted a farmer to grow our turkeys for us to fulfill our orders for 2007 Thanksgiving and Christmas . THAT farmer JUST contacted us November 5th just before 8pm to inform us that the Turkeys are NOT going to be processed for Thanksgiving because they are too small. Which means we will not be able to fulfill ANY of the near 100 orders we have for Turkeys. We contacted all the farmers that we know of, as well as processors that process for small farms and tried to locate fresh, TRUE free range or pasture raised turkeys and nobody has any to spare. I finally DID contact Whole Foods.., and where it may not be as local as we would like (they are from Pennsylvania) and not our definition of Free Range (they ARE USDA Free Range) - at least they ARE offering Farm Grown, Fresh, Free Range Turkeys and they are only $1.99 a lb. BUT MUST BE ORDERED PRIOR TO WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 14.., they will be available for pick up Tuesday or Wednesday Fresh - right before Thanksgiving. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL WHOLE FOODS Store to get yours ordered! MORAL of this Story: If you want something done right.., do it yourself. Early 2008 we will be back in FULL Poultry Operations.., again.., all humanely raised BY US, grown on OUR pastures.., chickens, cornish hens, heritage breeds.., and perhaps most important.., we will have plenty of fat, happy Thanksgiving 2008 Turkeys!!!
