Shoppers can still reserve large, fresh turkeys – from organic, kosher, heirloom, free-range and heritage to hand-brined or pre-cooked – at Whole Foods Market stores or online at

All Whole Foods Market turkeys come from farms that are certified under the 5-Step™ Animal Welfare Rating System, so shoppers can know exactly how their turkey was raised before they buy it.

“Happy turkeys are healthy turkeys,” said Theo Weening, global meat buyer for Whole Foods Market. “All of our turkeys are raised the way that nature intended – with room to flap their wings, and, like all of the meat at Whole Foods Market, with no antibiotics, no added hormones and no animal by-product in their feed – ever.”

*Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising pork, poultry, goats, veal and bison.
