2021 Turkey Reservation

Thanksgiving Turkeys

Thank you for choosing Greenacres for your Thanksgiving plans. By joining our mailing list you will be one of the first to know when turkey registrations open up for 2022.

Our turkeys are humanely raised on our lush pastures in Cincinnati and enjoy a healthy lifestyle making for a better and more nutritious product. If you would like to learn more about how Greenacres raises turkeys, click here.

FAQ

Why can’t I choose a specific weight for my turkey?

Because our turkeys are raised outdoors on our farm, their sizes can vary significantly year-to-year. When we bring the turkeys back from the butcher, we sort them by size and make a determination on what weights will fall into each bracket (small, medium, large, x-large). We do our very best to provide you with a turkey as close to your expectations as possible, but can make no guarantees on the final sizes of our birds.

How do I pay my $20 deposit?

Come into the Farmstore during open hours to pay by credit card or cash (Tues-Fri 10:30-5 and Sat 9-1). You can also pay your deposit by phone by calling us at 513-891-4227 extension 1 within 10 business days after your reservation.

What is your process for filling turkey orders?

Turkeys and pickup times will be offered to customers in the order in which we receive this pre-order form. Customers who fill out their order form early will get first access to their preferred turkey size and pickup time.

When will I pick up my turkey?

1-hour assigned pickup time windows will be available the Tuesday and Wednesday of Thanksgiving week (November 23 and 24). We do not have any turkeys available before November 23rd. We will contact you via email in early November to schedule your pickup date and time.

What size turkey do I need?

In general, a small turkey will feed 4-6 people, a medium for 7-10, a large for 11-14, and an XL for 15+ people however we are big fans of leftovers! We recommend erring on the side of having more leftovers to share, rather than not having enough to go around.

What can I expect at pickup?

Within your assigned pickup window, you will arrive at the Farmstore (8255 Spooky Hollow Road) and be greeted by a Greenacres staff member. They will retrieve your turkey and any other pre-ordered items, and assist you with checkout. We accept cash and credit card. The Farmstore will also be open for in-person shopping, with our full selection of 100% grassfed beef, pastured pork, chicken, eggs, vegetables and flowers. Curbside-only pickup will also be available, just let your staff member know when you arrive. Please keep in mind this process may change due to Covid restrictions, and we will let you know via email of any changes.

Do I need to prepare this turkey any differently because it’s fresh and pasture raised?

Nope! Your turkey will be fresh, so no thawing is necessary. Prepare as you would any other turkey (but it’s going to taste better!). For basic oven roasting, plan on 13 minutes per pound at 350º, until the thickest portion reaches an internal temperature of 165º

What if I need to cancel or change my order?

We do our best to accommodate these situations, but please keep in mind that changes may not be possible. Please get in touch with us so we can find the best solution for you. If you need to cancel, let us know ASAP so we can offer your turkey to another customer, and we will refund your deposit.

What about vegetables, flowers and eggs?

We will have a wide assortment of vegetables available for your feast! Sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, greens, fresh herbs and more, as well as fresh flower bouquets and pasture raised eggs. In mid-November we will email you a list of everything we will have available, with the option to pre-order.

A note about feathers

The turkey you typically buy at the grocery store has been bred to have white feathers, a genetic trait selected so feathers aren’t as visible after defeathering. These type of selective breeding practices can come at the expense of overall turkey health and flavor. Choosing turkeys with genetic traits closer to their wild ancestors means that our turkeys will have bronze feathers, but are better suited to thrive outdoors and have great flavor. These bronze feathers may occasionally be visible on the turkey you bring home – simply remove before cooking.

Emily Pickett – Saturday Stream Snapshot Organizer

Emily Pickett – Saturday Stream Snapshot Organizer

Emily has been an Environment Educator at Greenacres since 2019. She took over Saturday Stream Snapshot in 2020 after participating in the program many times herself. She has been working on building awareness of the efforts to protect the watershed ever since.

Why is it important for people to get involved with programs like Saturday Stream Snapshot?

Protecting the water quality of our rivers and streams is incredibly important for both human health and the health of the plants and animals that make the watershed their home. Clean water is one of the most important resources on the planet! There are just too many bodies of water for one person or organization to protect, so we are absolutely dependent on our volunteers to make sure we are doing our part.

What is your favorite part of the program?

I love working with our volunteers who are passionate about caring for the environment. Even though we all have different backgrounds we are all coming together over this shared goal. The time spent running chemical tests is a great opportunity to get know and learn from each other.

What are you looking forward to with the program this year?

Watching the program grow with the support of our volunteers! The pandemic really slowed down our efforts in 2020 as we worked on a plan to resume the program safely. We’re fortunate enough to have plenty of room to spread out and I’m looking forward to getting samples collected and tested again.

 

Emily will be leading a Virtual Kickoff and Training session on February 20 for those interested in volunteering this year. You can sign up to attend here.
