For the past few years our family has made a commitment to try to eat organic. We have strong feelings about the way animals are raised, and in the words of Little Foodie "animals should have a good happy life before we eat them". This year we decided to find a local farm where we could purchase our Christmas turkey, I searched online at http://www.localharvest.org/ and found a farm about an hour from our house at http://www.ourspringfieldfarm.com/. Although the turkey was a little pricey, it was so yummy and when you cook a turkey that is fed a natural diet (not corn) the turkey is much juicer & moist. We had a delicious turkey dinner and we felt good about the life our turkey had before he became our family meal. Make a resolution this year to try to buy more organic, grass fed meats; your family, the animals and the environment will be much happier!
