As far as how much our fabulous organic free-range turkey is costing us CharlieD - $2.99/pound. And worth every single penny. From the first time we went out on a limb & ordered one about 8 years ago, we've never gone back. The flavor, the juiciness - which extend to the leftovers thricefold - make it worth every single penny. I'll NEVER go back to supermarket turkey for Thanksgiving. It's just that good.
I believe you are right but where I live I would need to drive at least four hours one way to get one. On the other hand if you get a decent frozen turkey and cook it right it will still be very good. I do wish people would buy a turkey more than once a year don't need a holiday to just cook a turkey and the price is right.

What is a Hoka turkey? I'm guessing it's a brand or farm.

Actually last year I read an article where there was some blind tasting done on a number of brands. I only remember that it was some Kosher brand that got the best marks. Do not remember which one, there were few of them.

Thank you Breeze.

JP, where you are there are probably free range turkeys are walking around just have to catch one. My friend goes to a farm not far from the cities every year and gets a live one and it is awesome fresh and tasty.

We have wild turkeys here they just take the breasts I have some in the freezer but I don't care for the tastel. It's like wild duck they usually taste quite bad as opposed to a farm raised duck. At least thats what I think.
