Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love its simplicity, its focus on family and thankfulness, and certainly, the fact that it revolves around a delicious meal. While Indiana may trail a bit behind Minnesota and a few other states in terms of turkey production, we still rank near the top of the list.
According to Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, Indiana accounts for just over 5% of the country’s turkey production, which amounts to about 15 million birds each year.
Several farms sell their Indiana-raised turkeys directly to the consumer. Below I’ve listed a few to contact if you want your gobbler to be of the Hoosier variety this year. I think a trip to the farm to pick up your table’s star attraction would make for a fun outing this time of year.
