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.

Glad we were able to purchase this organic turkey from you. It worked out for us.
This turkey was not as tender and juicy as our previous 2. I am hopeful that this situation was as a result of the turkey being delayed in shipment, thus I couldn't do a refrigerator thaw. I had to use cold water. In fact, when I unwrapped the turkey to apply the seasoning butter, it was still showing ice in the body cavity. Not your fault, but it took longer to roast per pound than the prior two. That extra time did dry the breast somewhat, I'm sure. Still, it was a much better turkey. The kosher preparation is superior, as God's way always is. Shalom.
I specifically requested that there be enough skin at the opening of the stomach cavity so that I could sew it closed. Not only was there not enough skin, the lower part of the breast had no skin over it and thus got very dry during cooking. For the price, I was disappointed.
One of the best turkeys we've had.
Best Turkey I’ve ever made or tasted!!!
Best Turkey I’ve ever made or tasted!!!
Very good ! I have a beautiful photo and it s delicious !
This was the first turkey we ordered from Grow and Behold and it was absolutely delicious! We were super happy with it, just as we have been with all of your products!
This was by far the worst turkey I have ever purchased. To start, there were many areas of the turkey that had no skin or torn skin. Moreover, the turkey required a lot of cleaning (1.5 hours). For the price paid it was not worth it!! Extremely disappointed.
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 Weight||Potential 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|
- 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.
