Good question. I've never seen a turkey farm down here. Wonder why?

I think I recall Fresh Market taking orders for fresh turkeys in the weeks before Thanksgiving.

Publix has fresh turkeys you can order at Thanksgiving time. Not sure how many days old they are, but they are fresh instead of frozen.

My work is going to have fresh, organic turkeys again this year. I'm not sure when they are going to start taking orders for them. I can check..

keep me posted! I will investigate Fresh Market & Publix too.

That is something I miss from NY, DH's company used to provide a lovely fresh turkey for each family. We had to go pick it up from the farm the day before Thanksgiving.

Now I have to pay for my own turkey *wahhhhh* Call OccupyWallstreet...tell them to add Free Fresh Turkies at Thanksgiving to their list of demands! :P

Thanks for the tip. The only thing I've found out for certain is that the steaks at Publix are awful.
