Preorder Caveny Farm Bourbon Red turkeys for pickup before Thanksgiving or Christmas. All turkeys are pre-sold. No additional birds are available at pickup. Processing is done at an inspected plant in an Amish community. All turkeys are processed shortly before pickup and delivered flash-frozen for peak flavor.
The facility processing our turkeys (and much of the turkeys raised by small Illinois farmers) will not clean gizzards. This is good news for those not using the extra bits stuck in the bird as they no longer pay for them. It is bad news for giblet gravy lovers but outside our control.
Caveny Farm delivers to select local & Chicago farmerís markets for pickup for the holidays. Or choose on-farm pickup and get a $9 credit per bird! Order your Heritage turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas now before some sizes sell out!
