One thing that we are trying to do more of this year is to buy our food products directly from Alabama farmers and producers. The idea for doing so was inspired by the fantastic Eating Alabama project and blog.
Well, if you are looking for a good source for Alabama grown turkey--one that is both local and raised in a healthy and sustainable way--then check out Bates Turkey in Fort Deposit, Alabama.
If you're not from Alabama, then we still recommend that you try to source as much locally as possible. Especially if you can find natural and health-friendly options like Bates.
