Thanksgiving Turkeys 2019
School has started, the nights are colder, and the leaves are starting to turn. That means that it is time to start thinking about where you are going to get your Thanksgiving turkey. We are now taking orders for our free range Certified Organic and BCSPCA Humane Certified Thanksgiving turkeys.
We raise an Orlopp Bronze Turkey. This is a Heritage Breed turkey that was developed by the Orlopp family back in 1935. Orlopp Bronze turkeys have a beautiful natural black feathering and thrive when raised outside. Our Thanksgiving turkeys are moved outside as soon as they are old enough and moved every day onto the fresh grass. The meat is a very light caramel color and boasts a very rich complex flavor. They are “black-feathered” birds which will cause some of the pin feather holes on the skin to look like little ink spots.

When you order we take a $10 deposit per turkey, this reserves you a turkey but not a specific size. If you would like a specific size we recommend that you arrive at your pickup location early in order to have the best selection of sizes available. The majority of our turkeys are between 12lb and 26lbs. The deadline to order turkeys will be October 7th at 5:00pm or when we sell out of reservable turkeys, whichever comes first. Turkeys are $12.99/kg ($5.90/lb).
Once you have placed your order online you will receive an order confirmation email. If you do not receive this email please check your junk mail folder. To make your turkey pickup as efficient as possible please print your confirmation email and bring it with you when you pickup your turkey.
