Yes, we know — Thanksgiving is a long way away.

But if you want to order a healthy, near locally raised turkey, you ought to think about it now.

A Bar H Farm in San Simon is taking orders for just such turkeys.

The birds are raised from chicks. They range free, and the farm makes its own feed to supplement the grass. No additives in the feed. No hormones. No antibiotics. Just pure feed. So pure birds.

The turkeys will be delivered to Tucson Nov. 14. They weigh 15 to 20 pounds and cost $4.20 a pound. Order at www.abarh farm.com

Know of a Southern Arizona ranch that's raising its own turkeys for Thanksgiving sales? Let us know and we'll pass the information on to our readers: e-mail kallen@azstarnet.com.
