Let’s talk turkey!!!! Order your Thanksgiving bird now

Friday, October 10, 2014, 3:11 pm

It’s never too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving! Once again this year, we are offering fresh turkeys from Stonewood Farm in Vermont. If you’ve been lucky enough to reserve a Stonewood Farm turkey the last few years (we’ve sold out every year we have offered these delicious birds), there needs to be no further explanation.

Stonewood Farm specializes in premium quality turkeys with superior flavor and juiciness. The turkeys are naturally grown, using no antibiotics or growth hormones, with plenty of fresh Vermont air, cool nights, green pastures, good feed and tender loving care.

Our turkeys will range in size from 10 – 30 lbs. and are $3.89/lb. We also have Stonewood Farm frozen turkey breasts, weighing 2 to 8 lbs.

Give us a call at 978.369.4494 between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. or stop down to our stand to place your order. Call early to get your preferred size.
