This Thanksgiving, Haligonians are gobbling up turkeys.
"We're really crazy right now, prepping turkeys," says Rae Lutz of Pasture Hill Farm, near Waterville. As of Tuesday, Lutz has received 400 orders for holiday turkeys, up from last year's 350. She attributes the increased demand to new interest in Pasture Hill's grass-fed and free-range turkeys.
It's not too late to get a turkey. "We have so many ordered I have to deliver a load to our stand"---at the Halifax Farmers' Market--- "Thursday [October 8], and I'll bring a few extra with me," says Lutz. "Come on down between three and five."
