Thanksgiving is coming soon!  I know...Halloween isn't even over yet.  But if you want a fresh local turkey, now is the time to order it.

By now, you've probably seen that there is a turkey shortage.  It feels like every year around this time you start to see national stories about how the price of turkey is about to go up and how it's going to be tough to get your hands on one.  It's kind of forcing people to secure their turkeys a little earlier than normal.

Luckily for us, there are a lot of farms around Western New York that are already taking orders for turkeys right now.

The best part about it is that you know what you're getting from a local farm.  If you are unsure, it's simple enough just to ask the farmer.  They are normally raised in much more humane conditions and you might find them to be much more flavorful than the ones from a store.  If you get yours from a grocery store, you never know what they've pumped into them.

Here's the only problem...they really do go quickly from local farms.  If you want to get in on buying a fresh, local turkey from a farm here in Western New York, now is the time to get your order in.

I asked for your suggestions of farms in the area that had some to offer and man did you come through!


But again, now is the time to get your order in.  You can't wait until the week before Thanksgiving and expect that they might have some there.

Here are some of the top farms to check with when you're looking for fresh/local turkeys here in Western New York.
