I couldn’t write an article about turkey without including my hometown favorite. The Yordy family has been providing turkeys to their customers for over 80 years. Every year, they oversee every aspect of the 100 percent natural life cycle of their turkeys. They raise, process and sell them exclusively at their store, so they go straight from their farm to your table – with nothing in between. Thankfully, they are willing to ship!
