Fresh Turkeys From Amish Farm

Sometime this summer I spoke to an Amish friend about his poultry. As a sideline he raises chickens, pigs, and turkeys for local market. He mentioned that he was taking orders for his Thanksgiving turkeys and asked if I needed any. Not being bashful, I spoke up and asked for two.
The call came this morning that my turkeys were all grown up and ready to get all dressed up for Thanksgiving. Refrigeration is scarce on an Amish farm, so Gail and I drove over to the farm to claim our prises.
As you can see from the photo, our turkeys are being packaged for us. We decided on the way home to have turkey dinner tomorrow, and save the second turkey for Thanksgiving.
