Thanksgiving is a special time here in Colorado Springs, a day that should be spent celebrating with friends, family, and loved ones and reflecting on all the important people and things in our lives.
For most families, a Colorado Springs Thanksgiving dinner is spent around one bird on the table—the prized turkey.
In pursuit of the perfect poultry, many of us are trying to support local Colorado farmers instead of buying the big-brand bird from the grocery store. Edible Front Range has provided a list of Colorado meat and poultry for you so that you can know exactly where your Thanksgiving dinner is coming from.
We ask you to support these local Colorado businesses by putting a true Colorado turkey on the table this Thanksgiving. Here are some poultry farms right here in Colorado:
- Boyles Family Farms: This family farm grows turkeys and broiler chickens outside, with native pasture grass and annual crops as forage. Located in Gill, Colorado, the Boyles can truly provide a beautiful bird.
- Eastern Plains Natural Food Co-Op: Grown in Bennett, Colorado, these genuine heritage breed poultry are raised humanely and naturally on pasture. Their meat is free of chemicals, with limited processing. The quality of your turkey would be unsurpassed, truly the natural taste our forefathers raised and enjoyed.
- Jodar Farms: Located in Fort Collins, Jodar Farms offers all-natural, free-range turkeys. Jodar Farms’ goal is to make sure that customers are as closely connected to their food as possible.
- Rocky Mountain Poultry Processing: Based in Nunn, Colorado, the business does custom processing of turkeys. The remodeled facility is clean, honest, and reliable.
We hope you support one of these or other local turkey farms this Thanksgiving to keep your dollar in Colorado.
From all of us at Sears & Associates, P.C., happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
