Thanksgiving Schedule & Turkey Defrosting Tips
Thank you for producing products that we can happily allow ourselves and our children to eat!
- Etti, Woodmere
I want you to know that I am thoroughly pleased. The food came to me perfectly frozen, and it is delicious. And I used the bones to make bone broth, and I want you to know, it is top grade. I so appreciate the fact that you provide a product that is pastured and Glatt kosher.

Delivery Schedule & FAQs

When Should I Order?
We are fully stocked, but we recommend that you order as soon as possible, especially if you want a very large or very small bird. You can choose a delivery date closer to Thanksgiving. For Mail Order customers, we recommend you choose to have your bird shipped the week of November 13.

We will be delivering and shipping the week of Thanksgiving (November 20) but your bird may arrive frozen.

What Size Bird Do I Need?
We recommend allowing between 3/4lb - 1lb turkey per person. Order a lager bird if you want leftovers; a smaller one if you're serving other meat, many other dishes and/or don't want much left over.

Are Turkeys Delivered Fresh or Frozen??
ALL TURKEYS ARE DELIVERED FROZEN EXCEPT "NY/NJ AREA HOME DELIVERY" THE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 20 (SEE BELOW). We recommend you defrost your bird in the fridge; allow 24hrs for each 5lbs of turkey. For faster defrosting techniques, click here. Birds shipped via FedEx will arrive FROZEN.
