Thanksgiving Turkey Deposit
Happy Hen Farm is so happy to be able to provide locally, ethically raised turkeys this Thanksgiving through a collaboration with another small family farm in Hurdle Mills, NC, Dawnbreaker Farms. The turkeys are raised on 20 acres of rolling pastures where they are rotated to fresh grass routinely. Their silvopasture strategy allows for the turkeys to get to act a lot like a wild turkey would - chasing grasshoppers and nibbling on persimmons and crab apples that have fallen. Their supplemental feed is non-gmo and they are never, ever given any sort of antibiotic or hormone.
They have raised turkeys now for 8 seasons and have seen an average weight of 17 lbs over those seasons. Please be aware that since every season is a little different (and these turkeys are not raised in a climate-controlled building like their commercially raised counterparts), the turkeys may be a little smaller or a little larger than that.
Turkeys will be FRESH - *NEVER FROZEN* - and must be picked up at the Midtown Farmers' Market on November 20th between 9 am and 12 pm.
Turkeys are $7.99/lb. A $30 deposit is required online or in person at the Midtown Farmers' Market in North Hills to reserve a turkey. Reservations will be accepted until November 6th.
We have enjoyed a pasture-raised turkey for Thanksgiving for several years and the difference in texture and taste really is remarkable.
