Let’s Talk Turkey

Oct 26, 2018

When my younger brother from New Hampshire inquired who was bringing the turkey to our annual family gathering at Round-the-Pond Retreat in Norway, I realized that the fall season was closing in fast. Yikes!  It’s time to order the turkey!

Nothing tastes any better than food farmed, fished and foraged from Maine.  This season, I encourage you to vote with your fork.  If your family hasn’t had the opportunity yet to experience the freshness of a turkey raised close to home, try it!

Where to find the perfect bird?

Your local food cooperative or health food store is the perfect start. The Maine Department of Agriculture has a listing of Maine turkey farmers.

For folks that want a certified organic turkey, the Maine Organic Farmer’s website is a good resource.

Our turkey this year is living the good life at Apple Creek Farm.

Grace Pond Farm in Monmouth,  Mandala Farm in Gouldsboro,Tide Mill Organic Farm in Edmunds and Farmer’s Gate Market in Wales are all sources for local birds.
