this one is almost ready to be carved, needs a little bit more temperature and color
after taking from oven let rest for almost an hour before carving.

After roasting the turkeys they are separated into different parts, deboned and cooled.  Then they are ready to be sliced and portioned.  Everyone gets some dark and light meat.


These are sample orders, the first picture is with the turkey already sliced, the second picture shows an order where the Turkey needs to be roasted at home ( roasting the turkey takes only 2 hours).  Last picture is a box ready to take home

We are roasting Mary’s  Organic Turkey
