The Natick Community Organic Farm is certified to sell organic produce and we follow the certification standards for raising our livestock.....

 

 

NCOF TURKEY FACTS

  • NCOF raises +/- 160 large domestic white turkeys every year. They are fed organic grains from their day of hatching and allowed to roam, graze, and romp on the Farm’s organic pastures. (check out our YouTube videos of our turkeys in the pasture and being curious)
  • Dressed turkeys weigh between 16 and 35 pounds.
  • Turkeys cost $5.00 pound, based on the cost of organic grain this year, plus a $5 slaughtering fee. They are sold fresh.

 

NCOF TURKEY OPINIONS (from CUSTOMERS, NOT THE BIRDS THEMSELVES)

NCOF turkeys are delicious. They are moist and juicy, and they make the best gravy ever. Because our birds are free to run around every day, there's less of a difference between the white meat and dark meat, making for a more uniform texture. NCOF birds also tend to cook more quickly than other store-bought birds, so do yourself a favor and invest in a meat thermometer to monitor your bird once it's in the oven to avoid overcooking it.

 

"Last year's turkey was our first from NCOF and the best we ever had."--Sarah

 

"Turkey is my favorite meat and once a year, at Thanksgiving, I get to have by far the best tasting turkey I've ever had when my friends serve the turkey that they purchase at NCOF. I wish these were available year round. Bursting with complex delectable flavor, this is what turkey is meant to be. I wait for it all year long!--Marty O.

 

"It was hands-down the most delicious turkey ever."--Barb L.

  • NCOF does not offer deposit refunds to customers who cannot get a bird of a certain weight.
