I have been happy with Diestel hens, that I've bought at Wild Oats, in the past but this year's was not good. It had been thawed too long at the store and had that less than fresh turkey smell. I think because of the grocers strike Wild Oats stocked way more turkeys than they had room for and thus didnt handle them right. OK I know everyone is sick and tired of Thanksgiving turkey posts...but, with everyones fresh in mind...please help me find the best free range/organic type for sale in a Los Angeles area market. Not interested in heritage, can't spend that much.
Any advice ??
I will be making a couple more turkeys for upcoming holiday parties and want to get it right.
