Stop by or call the store at (585) 521-4278 to order your fresh, local turkey plus all new sides from the Hart’s Kitchen and Leo’s Bakery and Deli pies.  

Once again, we are planning to fill your Thanksgiving table with the best of the season and the region.  Our culinary team is cooking up tasty side dishes to make the holiday simply delicious. Check out our Wild Rice and Kale Stuffed Acorn Squash Halves (vegan, gluten free), Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potato Puree, Traditional Bread Stuffing, Maple-glazed Brussels Sprouts (gluten free), Wild Mushroom Stuffing (vegan), Cranberry Sauce and Gravy.

We are proud to be partnering with FingerLakes Farms to bring you all-natural, locally raised Thanksgiving turkeys!

Their turkeys are all-natural, no antibiotics, no hormones and delivered fresh, never frozen.  Along with natural foraging, the turkeys are fed a natural local feed that includes non-GMO corn and non-GMO roasted soybeans.

Save time, let us brine – brining makes your Thanksgiving bird more tender, juicier and tasty!

The salt in the brine adjusts the structure of the meat so it can absorb and contain more moisture resulting in juicer meat. The salt also penetrates deeper into the meat allowing the muscle fibers to relax which results in more tender and flavorful meat. We also add fresh herbs and a hint of sweetness to our brine adding a bit more flavor and color to your finished bird. All you have to do is pick up your bird in a bucket and roast. We do the prep work for you!

How big of a turkey should you get?

Generally speaking we recommend 1.5 lbs of turkey for each guest around your table (but don’t forget about the leftovers!).  Sizes typically range from 10-20 pounds so please indicate if you want a smaller or larger bird when you place your order.  Keep in mind that we do not have much control over the size of the birds we receive. Click here for an example order form.  A $50 deposit is due at the time of pre-order for all local turkey orders.  Pre-orders end Sunday, November 13th.

NEW this year!  Join us on November 12th from 11am-2pm for a Local Thanksgiving Showcase.  We’ll show off and sample items from our Thanksgiving menu and share some holiday recipes featuring a few of our favorite local products including Guglielmo’s Autumn Sauce and F. Oliver’s Garlic Oil. Special savings coupon books available to the first 50 guests.

You’ll find other turkey options include Honeysuckle White fresh and frozen turkey’s and Mary’s Organic turkey’s starting at $1.99/lb.  Check the freezer section and meat department starting November 1st.
