Here’s a list of some of the free-range turkey farms in New England.

The USDA defines “free-range” as birds “allowed access to the outside.” However, farms do this in different ways. Some farms let their turkeys walk and peck in a pasture; others let them roam freely in an outdoor dirt pen. Others keep the turkeys in outdoor cages, noting that the birds are still getting “fresh air and sunshine.”

Turkeys raised in a free-range turkey farm are often happier and healthier. You should still do your homework, though, to ensure that the turkeys you consume are raised with methods up to your and your family’s standards. Check with your neighborhood market, farmers’ market, or butcher shop for their recommendations on free-range turkey farms in New England, or go to www.localharvest.org/organic-turkey.jsp for free-range turkey farms around the country. You’ll find lists and descriptions of organic, free-range, and heritage-breed turkey producers in your area.
