If you're not already thinking about your Thanksgiving turkey, you should be. The best eating holiday ever will be here before you know it, and if you're planning on ordering a turkey, deadlines are looming.
Never fear, Gut Check is here to help you find a delicious and succulent turkey that spent its life frolicking in the Missouri or Illinois countryside instead of cramped up in a cage.
Straub's is selling, fresh, all-natural, free-range turkeys from Buttonwood Farms in California, Missouri. Get a 17 to 19 pound hen, or a tom 22 pounds and larger at $4.99 a pound. Order them by calling your local store directly: Clayton (314-725-2121), Webster Groves (314-962-0169), Central West End (314-361-6646) or Town & Country (314-434-4707).
If you're wanting local, though, make sure you ask specifically for a Buttonwood turkey -- the Straub's turkeys, although also never-frozen, free-range and all-natural, are sourced from Thief River Falls, Minnesota.
