This year we searched for a local free range turkey for the holidays. We found Mack Hill Farm through internet research. The white midgets were new to their farm they explained and were anticipated to be small (12-14 pounds each), so we ordered two. Lisa was very helpful in telling us about the type of turkey we were buying, their friendly disposition as well as the way in which they were raised.
The farm was delayed at the slaughter house due to a backup, so they offered to hand slaughter and ready our turkeys so that we would have time to brine them. They also explained how to brine the turkeys, gave us a brine recipe and even gave us some buckets to brine them in.
These turkeys were absolutely incredible. We bought and cooked 2 for our group of 13 on Thanksgiving and we had plenty of leftovers. I generally do not like the dark meat - finding it a bit gamey, but on these turkeys it was very tasty.
I would encourage anyone to try out this farm and their delicious turkeys. We were truly happy with our purchase and would definitely buy from them again.
We have previously bought locally raised meats and poultry that has been good, but the personalized assistance at Mack HIll Farm was helpful and appreciated.
