More than 66 percent of our Turkeys available for Thanksgiving have been reserved as of Oct. 30. It is beginning to look like an early sellout for 2014.
We still have the full selection of sizes, from 10 or 11 pounds to more than 30 pounds, but the smaller sizes (10-12 and 12-14) will be all spoken for soon.
We have held the price from last year, $3.79 a pound. Smoked (fully cooked) whole Turkeys are $5.99 a pound. Predicted lowering of feed prices, which would have lowered the prices of our Turkeys, did not happen. Commodity farmers are harvesting record crops of corn and soy beans, the major ingredients in Turkey feed, but the railroads won’t deliver the grain because they make more money delivering petroleum. You can read about that by clicking on Newsletter. When The Turkey Times pdf comes up, scroll to pages 5 and 6 for all the information on ordering and pickup of your Thanksgiving treat.
And remember, we have nearly 40 other items that you can pick up when you get your Thanksgiving Turkey or that you can order ahead with your Thanksgiving bird. We have five sites where you can pick up your Turkey, too. To order, click on Our Products and scroll down through the menu to the order form. Remember, the early bird gets the bird.
