Ideas for Next Year
No turkeys you say? Yes, the small farms of the Reserve mostly operate on tighter margins than larger livestock farms and customers need to pre-order their birds early to be sure there are homes for each bird that is raised - usually ordering by mid October or earlier. Some places to secure your bird next year:
- Nick's Organic Farm (small chance you could get a "reserve" bird this year, contact them.)
- Fox Hollow Farm Market
- RB Savage and Sons
