Thanksgiving Turkeys – from the farm to your table

Once again, we’re talkin’ Turkey! Chef Karp is sourcing free range turkeys from Misty Knoll Farm in Vermont, which you can order raw, brined, or cooked. The 14-16 pound turkeys will be “fresh-slaughter”, which means that they are killed on order and not processed, pre-packaged or stored. Last year the vote was a landslide – these turkeys are awesome! This direct route from farm to table provides for the freshest, most natural turkey experience. You can order these turkeys raw for cooking in your own home, pre-brined, or cooked with or without all the trimmings. Click here for the complete menu, pricing and order form – we have held prices from last year – no increase!

Misty Knoll Farms is a family-owned farm producing the finest naturally raised chickens and turkeys available from Vermont. Misty Knoll is located in the Champlain Valley between Rutland and Burlington, and the flocks are raised in open barns with free access to pasture, sunlight, wholesome feed and fresh water. Allowed to grow naturally to size, the turkeys are robust and meatier. Farmers Rob & John are part of the “Vermont Fresh Network” and feel strongly that working to create lasting and sustainable connections between local farms and restaurants is critical for the future of Vermont’s landscape, its economy, and the health of the state. PLATES is happy to be part of that alliance.

  1. Liz, the link to the Thanksgiving menu links into the Gannett webmail system. I think that is wrong.
