WNY Fresh Turkey Guide 2017

Buy fresh, buy local!



 

Here's our updated turkey list. We've checked with each of these farms, and—for convenience's sake—we've included some local vendors who can connect their customers with high-quality, humanely raised turkeys.

 

 (Note: If you want additional information, the website Agrilicious (www.agrilicious.org) is pretty much a database for locally raised products and animals. You can search for your area code and how many miles within that you want, and it gives you a list of farms and stores to find turkeys around you. Pretty neat!)
