Turkey Processing starts this weekend!

We start processing holiday turkeys this weekend. I can't believe it's already here! This is, by far, the busiest weekend on the farm. We spend three straight days processing turkeys for our customers. We are almost DOUBLING the number of turkeys we are selling this year, compared to last year. That means doubling the amount of work over the weekend, too!

We also have birds to process for other folks, too, since this is the last weekend we use our gear. We have several customers who need their own turkeys processed, as well as chickens and ducks.  We are thankful to have some culinary student volunteers with us for Friday and Saturday, to learn about poultry processing and to lend a hand for us. We also know we will have other volunteers who want to come and learn how to butcher their own birds. So the farm will be super busy this weekend!

We look forward to seeing and meeting our volunteers and customers, and are thankful we can be a part of your holiday meal.

Happy Thanksgiving, in advance, and we'll see you this weekend!
