Is fresh organic turkey worth the price?

vvv03 | Nov 16, 200810:17 AM     24

It's my first year ever to have thanksgiving and I'm excited and nervous about doing it right. I ordered a turkey from the turkey farm stand at Grand Army Plaza farmer's market in Brooklyn, at 2.99/lb. I told some people the price and they thought it was very overpriced. Having never bought a turkey, I didn't know any better. My question is, is there a big difference between frozen and fresh? I'd prefer organic, both in terms of hormones and free range (like to think the poor guy had a decent life until, well, until I had him slaughtered), but I can probably get a decent priced frozen organic turkey at Fairway. What do you think, is fresh worth the expense?
