The Thanksgiving Turkeys you find at Grocery stores…

We all look forward to that delicious, golden-brown turkey centerpiece as Thanksgiving approaches. But before you take your first bite this year, you need to know something.

Did you ever stop to wonder where your turkey comes from? I’m not just talking about the farm — I’m talking about the journey it takes to get to your table. It’s a tale not often told, and for good reason. It’s not pretty.

Most of us are blissfully unaware of the conditions in which many Thanksgiving turkeys are raised.

These birds are often kept in cramped, inhumane conditions, pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormones.

This raises ethical concerns and poses potential health risks to us, the consumers.

And it doesn’t stop there.

The processing of these turkeys can be just as alarming. From unsanitary conditions to questionable methods, the path from farm to table is fraught with issues that the industry would rather keep under wraps.

But why should YOU care? Because it’s not just about animal welfare; it’s about your family’s health and wellbeing.

The presence of antibiotics and other chemicals in your turkey can have real, lasting effects on human health.

Plus, supporting these unethical practices goes against the very spirit of Thanksgiving — a holiday that’s supposed to be about gratitude and respect for all life.

So, what can you do?

This Thanksgiving, you can make a choice that’s in line with the values of the holiday. Choose turkeys that are not just more tasty, but also ethically and responsibly sourced.

Like our 100% All Natural, Humanely Raised Turkey. Our gluten-free turkeys haven’t undergone pre-brining, soaking, injections, or marinades.

Check them out and place your order before we inevitably run out of stock.

They will be available for local pickup (only) starting this Wednesday!
