I've had this conversation with a couple of people in the last day. I believe one is going the fresh route, but probably not the other.

My mom gets it fresh to order from the local butcher. I guess I don't really know if that means the bird was treated any better than at Butterball but it does mean it's local and fresh and free range.

But sometimes it sure is hard to resist the Thanksgiving surplus turkeys at the supermarket for $5 each the following week.

My family has been purchasing local fresh turkeys for 30+ years.
My parents were organic farmers before moving to WI last year, so that kind of thinking is ingrained.
