Help me with my turkey trot

TrishUntrapped | Nov 11, 2008 06:59 AM

As part of my efforts to hold my first organic Thanksgiving, utilizing as many organic products as possible, I am now seriously reviewing turkey options. They are plentiful and I am overwhelmed.

For those of you familiar with turkey classifications — your help is appreciated.

There is no shortage of turkey choices in my area of Connecticut.

I can choose from Eberly's Organic, Murray's Natural, Stew Leonard's Naked Turkeys, Bell and Evans Natural Turkeys, Round Hill Farms Natural Turkeys, and Empire Kosher Turkeys to name just a few.

The past couple years I have cooked a fresh Empire Kosher with great results. My husband said why not get a kosher one again. And I thought about it and wondered if they meet the standards of organic... I don't mean hard and fast Certified Organic....just organic in the way they are raised.... I also wondered if the natural turkeys such as Stew Leonard's which are advertised as antibiotic and hormone-free would qualify.

Does anyone have any thoughts? The Eberly Organic is $5.49 a pound, the others much less.... I have never had Eberly and don't know if it is worth it. I looked up Murray's and that seems like a very good purveyor.

I want to make a solid, good decision. Thanks.
