The Not-So-Fine Print: Because we work with small farmers who only raise turkeys for Thanksgiving harvest, the exact weights of our turkeys will not be known until harvest. Turkeys are fresh, uncooked and unbrined. (Sorry, we can’t roast your turkey, but we’ll guide you on what to do!)

Choose Your Pickup Date

Turkeys must be picked up at a Fleishers butcher shop between Mon, Nov 25 and Wed, Nov 27. (We are unable to offer delivery for Thanksgiving orders, but this means we can confirm your order is perfect before you leave the shop!) We are CLOSED Nov 28-29. All Thanksgiving orders require a $60 non-refundable deposit per turkey; the remaining balance will be paid when you pick up. We offer turkey spatchcocking for $15 per bird, which you can request in the Order Notes section at checkout.

 

Sound good? Don’t wait; we sell out of turkeys every year.

How Much Turkey Do I Need? 

We work with small farmers who raise turkeys specifically for Thanksgiving, timing the growth of the flock so that they’re just at the right size for holiday harvest. Because of this, we won’t have the exact weight of your bird until the time of checkout. Please select a weight range that works for your party’s size (see our handy portioning guide below).

Brining Tips

One technique for a juicy bird is to brine it. There are two types of brining: wet and dry.

 

  • Wet brining requires submerging a turkey in a salt-water solution of 1:1 cups of salt to gallons of water (herbs, spices, and aromatics can be incorporated) for several hours or overnight, but never for more than 24 hours. Remove your bird from the brine, give it a quick rinse and leave it in the fridge for 24 hours to dry the skin. Baste with clarified butter for ultimate crispy skin and a slightly nutty flavor before popping it in the oven.
  • Dry brining involves combining 8-10 Tbsp salt with 2 Tbsp baking powder, rubbing it over the bird and leaving it in the fridge overnight to draw out the moisture. Remember DON’T rinse this brine off before cooking. Just baste with clarified butter and pop it in the oven.

The Key to Great Gravy

Add giblets to your gravy for a flavor boost!

 

  • Chop turkey giblets and season with salt and pepper
  • Heat 4 Tbsp butter in a saucepan
  • When butter starts to foam, add giblets and cook for about 2 minutes on medium heat
  • Stir in a 1/4 cup flour to form a paste and cook for 3 minutes
  • Whisk in pan drippings and stock to desired thickness
  • Season to taste
