Why are we not carrying Pounds Turkeys this year? At the close of last holiday season, Pounds Farm made the decision to reduce their flock beginning this year. In that process, our order could not be fulfilled by them. We immediately began looking for another all natural, farm fresh turkey, and located Loag’s Corner Farm in Elverson PA. They are a little further away, located about 4 hours away, near Philadelphia. The product remains the same. A young, farm fresh turkey, with no artificial ingredients, all natural, antibiotic free, minimally processed, nitrate free turkey.

How Much Turkey Do I Need?
We work with small farmers who raise turkeys specifically for Thanksgiving, timing the growth of the flock so that they’re just at the right size for holiday harvest. Because of this, we won’t know the exact weight of your bird until the time of pickup. Please select a weight range that works for your party size (See guide below).
|Number of Guests||Recommended Weight Range|
|5 or fewer||Breast(s) & Drumsticks|
|6-9 Guests||8-13 lbs|
|10-13 Guests||13-16 lbs.|
|14-17 Guests||16-19 lbs|
|18+ Guests||19-26 lbs|
How Long Do I Need To Cook My Turkey
This table is from the USDA and is based on a 325°F oven, and fully defrosted or a fresh bird. (For unstuffed bird, we’re talking roughly 15 minutes per pound).
If you want to cook a frozen turkey, it will take at leasdt 50% longer than the recommended times.
It is recommended that you also check internal temperature of the turkey in the innermost part of the thigh, wing and the thickess part of the breast with a food thermometer. The minimum internal temperature should reach 165°F for safety.
|Size of Turkey||Cook Time|
|12 to 14 lbs||3 to 3-1/4 hours|
|14 to 18 lbs||3-3/4 to 4-1/4 hours|
|18 to 20 lbs||4-1/4 to 4-1/2 hours|
|20 to 24 lbs||4-1/2 to 5 hours|
|Size of Turkey||Cook Time|
|12 to 14 lbs||3-1/2 to 4 hours|
|14 to 18 lbs||4 to 4-1/4 hours|
|18 to 20 lbs||4-1/4 to 4-3/4 hours|
|20 to 24 lbs||4-3/4 to 5-1/4 hours|
