Countdown to Turkey Time

Posted by / Monday, November 8th, 2010

It’s time to start thinking about your Thanksgiving turkey.  Whether you buy one from the store, or order turkey out at dinner, most of us will be having turkey this Thanksgiving.  It is said that 90% of households eat turkey on Thanksgiving.

There are usually extras after the Thanksgiving feast, so we end up eating turkey for awhile after Thanksgiving Day.  Turkey soup, sandwiches, and omelets are served until not a bite of turkey is left to waste.

I always like to know where my turkey came from.  I try to buy organic and if it is a locally raised turkey, even better.  You can order a fresh or frozen certified organic, humane, heritage-breed, pasture-raised turkey from Ayrshire Farm this year.  Turkeys are available anywhere from 10 to over 20 pounds!  Also available from Ayrshire Farm: beef, certified humane veal, pork, poultry and sausage.

If you are unsure about cooking a turkey, How to Cook a Thanksgiving Turkey will help with step by step instructions.  If you want more information on buying fresh and local in Virginia, Buy Local Virginia will help you find what you are looking for.  Start preparing now, there are only 16 days until turkey time!
