Because we raise our turkeys right--on grass and in the sunshine--they taste completely different than the ones you see in the store. So many of our customers tell us that they didn't really like turkey, until they had one of ours!
Are these turkeys fresh or frozen?
After many years of selling fresh turkeys, we have switched to only offering frozen turkeys. The quality of these birds is the exact same as the fresh turkeys we've always sold, with these additional advantages:
Can you deliver my turkey?
Yes! Make sure you choose Home Delivery as your delivery location, and be sure to select the date you want your turkey delivered. The last delivery day before Thanksgiving will be Friday, Nov. 17, which will give plenty of time for thawing in your fridge. Your turkey will be delivered in a 9 x 11.5 x 15.5 inch box, so please leave a large cooler on your porch that will accommodate your Thanksgiving turkey.
Can I pick up my turkey at the farm?
Yes! Make sure you choose Hoosier Heritage Farm as your delivery location, and be sure to select the date you will pick up your turkey. We have limited freezer space in our store, so we appreciate if you can pick up the turkey on the day you select.
How long will it take to thaw my turkey?
A good rule of thumb is to allot 24 hours in the fridge for each 5 lbs of turkey weight. So a 15 lb turkey will take 3 days to thaw, and a 20 lb turkey will take 4 days.
How do I cook my pasture-raised turkey?
You can use any of your favorite recipes to cook/grill/bake/smoke your turkey. Just be aware that a pasture-raised turkey will generally cook faster than a store-bought turkey, so be careful not to over-cook it. Cooked correctly, these turkeys will be wonderfully moist and flavorful.
What else is included with my turkey?
All turkeys include neck and giblets inside.
