I have been doing these turkey deals post around Thanksgiving – 5 years running for my home state of Michigan. I thought this year it was time to offer the same kind of information for my friends across the border. I have spend enough time in Ohio over the last few years and visited enough grocery stores to gain any idea for where to shop.

Make sure when you are done reading the guide to check out some of these other Thanksgiving-related posts: What is a Self-Basted Turkey?, What is an Organic Turkey?,Essential Thanksgiving Kitchen Tools, Pop-Up Timers, Pumpkin Recipes.

Raised in Pennsylvania’s Amish country, our turkeys are fed a vegetarian diet free of animal by-products.

The difference in diet, animal care, and handling is evident in the unmatched taste and tenderness of this bird.
