Fall is in the air and it is now time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. We will again be taking orders for our free range Certified Organic and BCSPCA Humane Certified 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.
This year’s turkey pickup locations and days are:
Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market in Edmonton- Oct 7th 8am-12pm
Our Organic Meat Shop in Edmonton (located in the Blush Lane Store) – Oct 7th 8am-3pm

To order your turkey or for more information about turkey pick up days and locations please call the farm office at 1-877-393-3133 or visit us at one of our markets. 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 2th at 5:00pm or when we sell out of turkeys, whichever comes first
