Have you thought about ordering your Thanksgiving turkey yet? Although there won’t be a turkey shortage this holiday season, it may be more difficult to find smaller birds, as more people host smaller gatherings. And it doesn’t hurt to get as many of your ingredients in advance, since supply chain issues could potentially cause a snag. This year, why not get your bird from a local NJ farm? Skip the grocery store lines and reserve a Thanksgiving turkey at one of these farms.
