supermarket turkey, no frozen turkeys! fresh turkeys

No frozen turkeyThis post has been updated for 2016. Click here for Fresh Turkeys in Bucks – 2016.

Repeat after me…“I will not buy a frozen supermarket turkey this year.” There. Was that so hard? Especially since we’ve pulled together where you can get fresh, natural turkeys in Bucks County – 2013 edition.

Not all are raised here (some come from Lancaster County or New Jersey), but they are all fresh and can be picked up just before Thanksgiving. And don’t dilly-dally. Some of these producers/vendors may sell out!

How much turkey should you order? A good rule of thumb is 1 pound per person (remember there are bones and such which add to the overall weight of the bird). This will give you some leftovers. If you want a lot of leftovers then plan on 1 ½ pounds per person.

This is an alphabetical list of markets, farms and producers where you can get the birds, along with key information. If no price is listed, feel free to call. Some places didn’t have prices at press time. I apologize if I have omitted a good source. Be sure to let me know, and I’ll add them to the list. Also, keep Christmas in mind too, since most of these suppliers also have turkeys (and ducks) for the December holidays.
