Whatever You Are Making, We've Got Something to Help!

Not everyone is going to have the same kind of get togethers this year. Whether you are cooking up a traditional family feast or scaling things back this year, TC Farm has got you covered.

Members who are logged in to the TC Farm portal can add any of the items on this page to their November delivery by clicking Add to Delivery.

If you are not a member or not logged in, you won't be able to. If you click "Add to Cart", it might look like something is happening but nothing is happening.

Whole Turkey

This year, TC Farm raised female broad breasted whites - similar to how we raise our Cornish Cross chickens. This means they are slower growing and have a better flavor.

  • Typically range from 10 - 16 pounds
  • Pasture Raised
  • Organic Feed

The whole turkeys we offer come in two sizes - medium and large. The large whole birds are greater than 13 pounds. The medium ones are less than 13 pounds -- usually between 10-13 pounds.

Smoked and sous vide turkey - All the Goodness, None of the Stress

We are super excited to be able to offer our crisp and serve sous vide turkey as an option this year. The portion size is great for people having smaller gatherings. Or, if you aren't sure that the bird you have will be enough, this is a fantastic way to make sure you have enough (extra!) of your favorite type of turkey!

Turkey Breast

Ground Turkey Breast

Box 389

Pasture raised and organic feed!

five packs of our ground turkey (~1lb ea)

This is made with only the breast meat, so lower fat than a mixed grind.

Turkey Breast Roast

Box 395

A smaller portion sized feast

One boneless turkey breast with tender and skin on.  

Weight will vary, most should be over 2.8 pounds, the average is around 3.5 pounds

These are broad-breasted white birds (not our historical Bourbon Reds), expect a softer texture and not quite as full of flavor. However, like our cornish cross chicken, we raised only females to get slow growth, healthier birds and higher quality.

If you are making our amazing stuffing recipe (below), be sure to get some breakfast sausage - box #171 Mushrooms #800 and bread cubes (available in November).

We've put together some terrific turkey tips plus have some recipes for gravy and stuffing. Mmmmmm mmmmmm.

These are flat-rate boxes

Because not all recipes call for the parts you imagine...
