hi all, doing Thanksgiving this year, first time in VA. We always like to get a farm fresh turkey...but don't want to spend over $100 (like Fields of Athenry and Ayshire Farm)...anyone have any ideas of local farms that provide holiday Turkeys? Doesn't have to be organic, just fresh. Thanks

My Organic Market (MOMs) always sells a really good fresh turkey. You can get organic or non-organic I think. You just call them to preorder about a week ahead of time.

There used to be a farm in Montgomery County, MD, where you could get a really fresh turkey. They'd kill it and prepare it for you. Thinking the whole farm thing would be fun and educational, we took the kids. BIG MISTAKE. Between the killing part and the unbelievably awful smell of the farm, they never wanted to eat turkey again. We've had Honey Baked Ham ever since! We've stayed clear of pig farms forever. LOL.

LOL yeah I don't want it THAT fresh But I hate supermarket meats in general, so would love to find a local farm that sells it already prepared - and already dead!

Found this Eat Wild - Virginia

You can zoom in on the map and see there are a couple farms in Clarke -- Briar Farmstead in Boyce says it has turkeys for the holidays!

Good luck (and keep the kids away)!

Had one more thought -- there is a natural foods store in Berryville on Business 7 at the far west end of town near the Catholic Church and the funeral home. I don't know if they stock fresh turkeys but they may be able to order one or give you a lead.

(They even carry fresh meat dog food!)
