The time has come for me to choose my Thanksgiving turkey. I usually leave this to the last minute and so the last few years I've wound up w/ Diestel. It's ok, but I'd like something better. I tend to prefer dark meat, so from what I've read I'd probably be happier with a Heritage turkey, which have not been bred to have mostly white meat the way the more modern breeds do.
I like the idea of buying a local brand, but my mobility right before Thanksgiving will be limited since I have to work Mon-Wed. I live on the Peninsula, so probably can pick up a turkey anywhere from SF to San Jose on Weds.
What do people recommend? I've looked at websites for Willie Bird (expensive), Mary's Heritage, and Harmony Farms. Any suggestions?
