If you're looking for a delicious, sustainably raised turkey this Thanksgiving, your best bet is to purchase one from a local farm. You can enter your location at Local Harvest or EatWild to find organic, free-range and grass-fed turkey producers near you. Your local food co-op, farmer's market or natural grocery store may also sell sustainably raised turkeys.

In addition to making sure you find a healthy bird that has had access to fresh pasture, you stand a better chance of finding rare heritage breeds by buying locally raised, grass-fed meat. Read more about heritage turkey breeds and other pastured poultry in the Mother Earth News Archive or at The Chicken and Egg Page.

And check out the United States Department of Agriculture's 'Let's Talk Turkey' Web site for detailed information on how to roast fresh and frozen turkeys safely.
