– Our fresh turkeys –
We raise a special flock each year for our fresh Thanksgiving turkeys. These whole turkeys have never been frozen. We keep these turkeys at a “deep-chill” temperature (right at 32° F) so that they stay fresh for your holiday meal. Because of this a small ice shell may form, but it will disappear quickly once you put it in your home fridge. Fresh turkeys save the hassle of thawing and cook faster then the traditional frozen turkey. Fresh turkeys should be frozen if not cooked by the Monday following the Thanksgiving holiday.
These turkeys can be picked up at our on farm store during the 5 days proceeding Thanksgiving (link to online order form available below starting Oct 22nd) or you can find a Ferndale Market fresh turkey at one of our participating retailers using our Thanksgiving Turkey locator map.
