About this product
It turns out when you raise animals well -- they simply taste better. All of our meats at Grow & Behold are raised in the US on pasture, without hormones or antibiotics, and turkey is one meat where you can really really taste the different. These whole turkeys are leaner than conventional birds, and also more moist. They cook much more quickly too. Raised in small batches by a network of dedicated Amish and Mennonite growers, our turkey are moved to fresh pasture daily where they roam and forage freely. They are fed exclusively GMO-free grain, never any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products.
Neck and giblets are sold separately and 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.

Very happy I tried this, will order again
Grow and Behold sells the very best turkeys. I love the quality of your birds. I buy the turkey whole, and when it’s partially defrosted I cut it into several meals. The legs and wings are one type of roasted turkey meal. The boneless breasts become turkey London broil, for which I have found wonderful recipes on the internet and have gotten accolades from guests. Bits and pieces get ground for meatballs or meatloaf, and the carcass makes a rich and flavorful soup base. You sell a very flavorful, moist and healthful product.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!!
Packs & Weights
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 "Number of Packages". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (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 packs, ~1.1lbs, and the price shows as $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.1lbs and will cost $39.99.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .65lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .35lbs (note that some may be slightly larger and some 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|
