Do You Spend More For an Organic, Free-Range, or Local Turkey?

Do You Splurge on an Organic, Free-Range, or Local Turkey?

During Thanksgiving, most grocery stores offer frozen turkeys at incredibly affordable prices. However, these turkeys are often loaded with additives and mass-produced in less than desirable conditions. Last year, I purchased one frozen Butterball turkey from Safeway and another free-range bird from a local farm. While the preparation and cooking method are what ultimately affect the flavor of the bird, seeing the two side-by-side was enough for me to realize the importance of purchasing a free-range poultry. Doesn't the turkey on the right look more healthy? What's your take on the matter?
