Get Your Thanksgiving Turkey at the Market!

We're thrilled to work with Homer Kinsinger to bring the freshest, most delicious turkeys to Cheverly Community Market this year. We'll have a limited quantity, so place your pre-order today! Mr. Kinsinger is an Amish turkey farmer from western Maryland. The turkeys are currently living a happy, healthy life as free-range, pasture- raised birds. Homer takes the turkeys for slaughter on November 23rd, and will deliver them to Cheverly on Tuesday, November 24. From the Homer: "Our farm is located in the mountainous area of western Maryland . Our goal in farming is to provide healthy and nutritious products for consumers. Our turkeys are fed an organic, all-natural soy-free diet of corn, wheat, oats, Canadian field peas and Fertrell minerals. They are also provided with fresh spring water three times a day. They are also on a rotational grazing program, so they have fresh grass daily. They have been grown without medication or growth hormones. Our farm hasn't had any chemicals sprayed on it for over 10 years but we haven't gone through the organic certification process."
7 Heritage Turkeys ($6 per pound)
These turkeys weigh between 14 and 18 lbs.
20 White Broad Breasted Turkeys
($3.30 per pound)
Please Specify:
Small Turkey: 8-10 lbs
Medium Turkey: 15 - 20 lbs.
Large Turkey: 20 - 25 lbs
Delivery charge 2$
The turkeys will be delivered fresh to Cheverly On Tuesday, November 24. We will provide pick-up details closer to the delivery date. Payment will be made by check to the farmer on the date of pick-up. The turkeys will be pre-weighed marked with a price at that time. Because there's a limited supply of turkeys this year, the Market is taking pre-orders. They're available on a first-come basis to those who reply, and we anticipate that they'll sell out quickly!
