The turkeys are butchered at a local USDA inspected facility. This means that you pick them up fresh the day they were butchered. You may then keep it cool for dinner or place it in your freezer.
Birds are fresh, ready for pick up mid October. We feel that it is most efficient and healthy for the birds to finish them while the grass is still green and before the weather changes. This means, you should be prepared to freeze your bird if you are wanting it for the holidays.
Average weight is around 16#. You may give an estimate of how much you want your bird to weigh. The price per pound changes year to year with rising grain costs, but it will be around $4.50/lb.
