Turkeys

Our all-natural turkeys are the perfect centerpiece for your Thanksgiving gathering. You can trust your turkey from the co-op has been humanely raised without hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. All of our birds are fresh, never frozen. Not only can you skip the lengthy thaw time, but fresh turkeys will cook more evenly with a beautiful finish and tenderness to match.

family

From Farm to Table Plainville Farms. Turkeys are raised on family farms

throughout New York and Pennsylvania, using holistic practices to promote their well-being. Birds are kept healthy without ever having to administer antibiotics. With access to feed and clean water on their own schedules, Plainville’s birds have room to roam in comfortable barns. Plainville Organic birds are fed organic feed and are raised to USDA organic standards.

Wendel’s. Three generations of Wendels have

brought WNY families their Thanksgiving turkeys since 1945. From East Concord NY, Wendel’s birds are barn floor raised and fed a specialty whole grain diet. When it comes to processing, Wendel’s uses only fresh water and never adds preservatives or self-basting oils.

Mary’s Heritage Turkeys. Coming all the way from

California, the Pitman family has been celebrating excellence in raising heritage turkeys since 1954. Heritage turkeys have been raised outdoors where the birds are able to exhibit natural foraging and roosting behaviors. Heritage turkeys have a rich taste with a uniquely firm texture. These birds tend to have a higher proportion of dark meat.
