The team at Western Daughters spends a lot of time thinking about where they source their meat. And while this butcher is best known for beef, the turkeys it’s supplying this Thanksgiving will meet the same high standard. Raised on Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch in Kansas, the turkeys, which are being sold for $75, are pasture-raised, rich with flavor, and free of antibiotics, hormones, and GMOs.
