Turkey & Ham Orders!

What you need to know to order your Fresh Free Range Turkey

Firstly, When thinking turkey, we have a few options: (a) fresh free range (organic available as well) uncooked (b) whole smoked turkey, or (c) our turkey roasts with either dark, or white meat..or a mix of both. Make sure to indicate what you are looking for to make sure your order is correct. We also provide precooked Thanksgiving Dinner. If you are looking for a cooked turkey and all the fixings, please give us a call at (905) 940-0655 and speak to our chef!

Secondly, how many will there be for dinner? As a general rule, a turkey will feed one person per pound of meat. This is a bit different with smaller turkeys, as they do not have the same “yield”. So any turkey less then 16/lb must be calculated as 1 per person per 1 ½/ lb of weight. This does not account for leftovers, which is an important consideration for many.

Size! Turkeys, fresh free range, will be 12-25 lbs for this Christmas season!

Thirdly, we’ll need to know your name, phone number and what day you’ll be in to pick it up. You can order with short notice if need be, but then you must be open minded about sizing. Since we need to order our turkeys 6-8 weeks in advance, and we might end up being short of a particular size and we may have difficulty filling your late order. Having said that, the sizing of turkeys can be a problem despite the best efforts of the farmer, so an open mind about the size is a good policy anyways.

Last, if you would like turkey, but not a whole bird, (or maybe you need something a little extra..) a boneless turkey breast or thigh are always an option. Available either stuffed with our sage and onion dressing, or plain. Sizing here is usually counted as 1/2 lb per person, but if you would like leftovers, think bigger. Be sure to ask for the cooking instructions sheet to go with these.

What you need to know to order your Ham!

Our Maple Sugar Ham, which won the gold award in a ham making competition. It’s not that we’re so smart, or even innovative, it’s just our stubborn adherence to the idea of not cutting corners and taking shortcuts in the process of making our hams (or anything else we do for that matter). There are boneless and slow-roasted with Maple and Brown Sugar until they are fully cooked. We also have our Traditional Bone-In Ham which is slow cooked over oak, available either whole or half. And last but not least, we have our Black Forest Ham. This is boneless, slow-smoked over oak and fully cooked, ready to go.
