Great Organic Turkey

Ellen | Dec 1, 2003 09:41 AM

This year's fresh turkey from Plainville Farms was the best one I've tried yet -- previous organic ones have come from Fresh Fields or have been fresh but not organic. Even my family, which scoffs at what I'm willing to pay for them (about $2.60 a pound), admitted that it was the best we ever had. I found it at McCaffrey's in Yardley; they put aside the last one for me when I called on Tuesday. I had gone to Wegman's Monday night but they were out and said they might get more of them in on Tuesday or Wednesday but would not put one aside for me and I didn't want to take the chance. I also could not get one from a local farm because I had waited too long to order. So the lesson is that if you want a Plainville or other fresh organic turkey, especially a smaller bird, you should probably order it a week or so in advance of the holiday.

Another place I recommend in the area is the Amish market on Route 27 in Kingston, NJ. Their fresh birds -- chicken and turkey -- are technically not organic but they are hormone and antibiotic-free, as well as locally grown. They sell rotisserie poultry and ribs that are really good too.
