With food in the oven and family around the table, Thanksgiving is the feel-good meal of the year. And this year, it feels even better – because we’re, along with our sisters to the west, Red Stick Moms Blog, partnering with Whole Foods Market to give away a Diestel Pre-Roasted Turkey Dinner for six to eight, valued at $89.99 with choice of Stuffing (Traditional Herb or Pecan Cornbread), Classic Mashed Potatoes, Turkey Gravy, and Traditional Cranberry Sauce! Every turkey sold at Whole Foods Market comes from a farm where animals are never caged, never crated and always raised with care and without antibiotics, added hormones* or animal byproducts in their feed. Shoppers can know how the turkeys were raised for their Thanksgiving table courtesy of Global Animal Partnership’s 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating™ program. Step 1, which suppliers must achieve in order to sell their turkeys at Whole Foods Market stores, requires that turkeys have ample space to move around, flap their wings, preen and dust bathe. As farms achieve higher ratings, the birds also have environmental enrichments (things to do!), more space indoors, and access to the outdoors where they can forage for insects and native vegetation. Turkeys on farms that have achieved a Step 5+ rating live their whole lives – enrichments, dust baths, foraging and all – on the same farm; they don’t even leave for processing. Check out one of their turkey farms in action: Mary’s Turkeys in Sanger, California! Online ordering or browsing for inspiration is now an option right here! You’ll find everything from cheese platters, signature brie appetizers, flower arrangements, party platters and more. The online store can help you find the bird for your budget, whether heirloom, organic or game and their skilled butchers can custom cut, marinate and season for you!
