Skip the mass-produced Butterball this Thanksgiving and buy an organic heritage turkey. Just like heirloom vegetables, heritage birds are prized because they have mated naturally over a long generation line unlike the commercial, industrialized birds of today.
Why a heritage bird? They taste better and are raised sustainably, which means they eat an organic diet free of hormones and antibiotics. And just like grass fed beef, heritage turkeys get the lay of the land and aren't forced to grow up fast. All of this is good for you and the planet. Pick one up at your natural grocery store or order one online from Local Harvest.
