When you check out the reviews for this product and our Whole Turkey, you'll see how much our customers love the rich flavor, juicy texture and overall experience of our pasture-raised kosher turkeys. All our birds are raised in small batches by a network of dedicated Amish and Mennonite growers, who move them daily to fresh pastures where they roam and forage freely. Our turkeys eat only GMO-free grain, never any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. This half turkey is about as easy to cook as roasting a whole chicken, and can take just about the same time. Consider cooking a half turkey if your whole turkey isn't big enough to feed your Thanksgiving crew, or just making it for a special dinner throughout the year -- you'll ask yourself why you always wait until November to enjoy this delicious, lean, healthy and flavorful meat. After roasting the bird, use the carcass and bones to make a flavorful stock or soup. *Price per pound is an estimate for comparison purposes only. Click on the "Details" tab to learn more.

Basic Cooking Technique

Roast at 325F, or smoke. Allow 10 min per pound and use a meat thermometer -- the flesh may still look "pink" but if the temperature is 165F and juices run clear, your bird is cooked. Read more: How To Cook a Half Turkey

    Half turkey

    Posted by Karin on Nov 28th 2020

    Omg- it was AWESOME! The size was perfect for two people to have dinner PLUS lots of leftovers. The taste and texture were amazing, and it was so much easier to cook and manage than a whole turkey. I cooked it at 325 and used a meat thermometer until it reached 365 and juices ran clear, then pulled it out and tented it while I made the gravy. I would definitely order this again.

    My husband and I both agree that this is the best turkey we have ever eaten.

    Found you online while searching for a half turkey - it was an expensive one for us as we live in Florida; however, this being a solitary Thanksgiving due to COVID, I splurged and am happy I did!

    I've never cooked a Thanksgiving turkey before, but I should not have been afraid with this turkey. It was just delicious, and I know that wasn't me :)

    My husband is preparing our 1/2 Turkey but he was taken aback by a whole clump of feathers. Your products have always been over the top. Making this an unpleasant surprise

    This was the best idea to make a half turkey for just 2 of us. But it was so delicious and moist and cooked so easily and quickly that we have decided we’re going to cook 2 halves in the future when we have more guests. The quality and superb taste is just undeniable.

    Half turkey

    Posted by Gillian on Dec 2nd 2019

    Everyone agreed that this was the best Thanksgiving turkey we've ever eaten!! It was infinitely easier to cook than a whole bird, and despite some grumbling about breaking tradition by not roasting a whole turkey, the whole gang was so thrilled with the result that we are definitely planning a repeat next year - if not sooner! I used a recipe I found online which calls specifically for a half turkey: https://www.canadianturkey.ca/recipes/classic-roasted-half-turkey/ I adjusted the temp to 325 and used slightly more wine and broth in the bottom of the pan. The turkey was tender and delicious! (The accompanying gravy recipe, which uses the turkey drippings and involves blending the onion and garlic that roast alongside the turkey, was also a huge winner. I used veg broth in place of the milk.) A huge success!

How Many Pieces Will I Receive?

Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.

For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.

Example: Lamb Chops

Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:


You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.

You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.

Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.

How Much Does It Weigh?

We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.

This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:  

Selected WeightPotential Weight Variance
under ~0.95 lb +/- 0.05 lb
~1 lb to ~2.1 lb +/- 0.1 lb
~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb +/- 0.3 lb
~2.9 lb to ~10 lb +/- 0.25 lb
~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb +/- 0.5 lb
over ~20 lb +/- 1 lb

For example: 

  • An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
  • An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb  could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb 

We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
