    I'm selling my free-range Bourbon Red heritage turkeys for Thanksgiving. These are pastured turkeys that have never been fed antibiotics or hormones. I'm located in Lancaster County, about an hour and 15 minutes west of Philadelphia.

    They will be butchered several days prior to Thanksgiving and can be picked up fresh from my farm, ready to put in the oven.

    If anyone is interested, please PM me and I'll forward all the details.

    Here is a 2008 study confirming the amazing, winning flavor of Bourbon Red turkeys: http://www.ayrshirefarm.com/tasting/turkey/documents/HeritageTurkeysPressRelease.doc

    Just an added note: these turkeys range from 7 to 12 pounds (they are not the big Butterball turkeys you buy at the grocery store) but are smaller, heritage turkeys known for their superior flavor.
