About this product
Pastured turkey at its finest! Our pastured turkeys have much more moisture and flavor than conventional birds because they spend their days out on the pasture. They also cook much more quickly. Neck and giblets are not included.
Basic Cooking Technique
Roast at 325F, or smoke. Allow 12-15 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. You may need to remove dark meat and roast for a little longer, or cover breast meat so it doesn't dry out while dark meat finishes cooking.
This product is shipped frozen and will arrive frozen or refrigerated.

I buy two. I butcher one myself and get several meals with no leftovers: roasted turkey parts, turkey london broil from the breast, ground turkey for turkey loaf, and bones for soup! It becomes economical meals.
I've been getting our turkey for Thanksgiving from Grow and Behold for several years now. It is always terrific, tasty and moist and flavorful.
The whole process of ordering, delivery, cooking help, and the taste of your turkey was wonderful! Our turkey had the most juice I’ve ever had. It was delicious!! Thank you!
This turkey was SUPERB. We prepared it on the BBQ on a stand and sprayed it periodically which gave it a lovely color. Put some soaked wool chips in a metal box for some smoke. Used the recipe on this site. Lots of juicy meat. Thank you Grow and Behold.
Absolutely perfect turkey. Delicious, exactly what I hoped for.
overall turkey was delicious and instructions were good but no gravy :(
It was delicous! Only issue is Turkey took a lot longer to cook than instructions stated - we checked the temperature and took an extra hour plus!!
I really was excited for this turkey and wanted to like it. But unfortunately, it was probably the worst looking turkey I have ever bought. The skin had completely ripped and fallen off half the breast and leg, it was lopsided, and there were still a lot of feathers I had to remove. I called customer service, they told me to simply use a safety pin to try and piece the skin back together. Tried that, and it made it even worse, held for 2 seconds before ripping through the skin entirely. I also didn't realize the giblets and the turkey neck were not included with the bird, which I am sure is written somewhere on the website but I guess I must have missed it. Bummer because I needed that for my gravy. Customer service wouldn't refund my money, but did offer $25 back. I was pretty embarassed though to display this turkey on Thanksgiving as the centerpiece.
Note from Grow and Behold: We're so sorry about the ripped skin! While we take quality control very seriously, we and our packers are only human, and occasionally, things can slip through the cracks. Kosher poultry often does have some remaining feathers to pluck, but we appreciate the pictures you sent us, and were glad to see that your bird was really in pretty good shape!
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
