Reminder: Time to Order Turkey
I just ordered ours from one of the local farmers I met at the local foods event last February sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension.
I chose to buy from John Stierly because the chicken I bought that day was excellent.
He is a 10 year old 4H member, who started in 2010 with a small flock of laying hens. Today with the help of his family he has a rapidly growing business of eggs, chickens and turkeys. They have pasture raised pork now, too.
His mom will deliver the turkey to your door in our area on Tuesday or Wednesday, just before Thanksgiving. About $4.00/lb. And a $20 deposit. They average 12 to 18 pounds.
There were about 20 left when I spoke John's mother, Christine.
You can reach them at JohnsChickens@yahoo.com or 607-742-5860. They are from Addison, New York.
They also have a new batch of chicken --breasts, legs and thighs, and some wings -- available for sale now.
