So have you thought about what kind we should have? Fresh? Frozen? Free-range? Organic? Wild? Local?

Seriously, you should know where your bird came from and how it was raised. If it was fed chemical-free food, then it's organic. If it was allowed to run around outside, then it's free-range. Some people think these things make it taste better. I'm not sure about that but I'd rather have a turkey from a farm that cares about the environment — and its animals!

Okay so free-range organic it is. Does this mean we have to run around and catch it ourselves?

Find a turkey farm near you!
