Just in Time for Thanksgiving

Turkey abuse.

The best way to enjoy Thanksgiving guilt-free is to purchase a turkey from small, local farms that humanely treat the birds -- or to forgo the bird altogether.

  • Scooby's Organic Farm in Davie is a family-run facility where chickens and turkeys are free to roam and eat an organic diet.
  • Whole Foods Market uses a five-step animal welfare system from Global Animal Partnership to share exactly how the turkey you're about to purchase has been raised, from step one (no crates, cages, or crowding) to step five (an animal centered existence with the bird spending its entire life on one farm).
  • The Healthy Food Club offers organic, humanely-raised turkeys from Miller's Organic Farm in Pennsylvania to members ($35 annual fee).
  • Skip the turkey altogether and plan an all-side dish meal or opt for a meat-free main course like fresh seafood or a hearty baked ziti. And, of course, there's always Tofurky.


Too bad WF doesn't wait for a disaster to gauge their customers, as witnessed this past week, they do it on a daily basis. Seems they like their turkeys better than their customers.
