Giveaway: Organic Whole Turkey


UPDATE November 9, 2014: We have a winner!

If you’ve been reading my blog for at least a year, then you probably already know this about me: Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You might assume it’s because I love to eat. And you’re right: I do love to eat. But I don’t need a holiday as an excuse! I’m a pro-leve eater every day of the year.

Thanksgiving is my favorite because of more than the food.

What more could there be than the food?

Thanksgiving is special to me because for whatever magical reason, it always feels relaxing, loving, warm, and lazy in a peaceful way. Like… the mayhem of everyday life is on hold for 24 hours so we can just be. IΒ  actively practice gratitude on a daily basis, so an entire holiday devoted to thankfulness and food is retty much my dream day.

Dave and are going to be in Prague on Thanksgiving this year (!) so I’ll be celebrating from across the pond. Thanks to the generosity of Tendergrass Farms, I’m hosting a giveaway of an Organic Whole Turkey for one of you lucky ducks turkeys!

About Tendergrass Farms

You can read the whole Tendergrass Farms story here, but here’s the gist of it: the Tendergrass Farms site is an online marketplace that helps people like you and me buy high-quality, pastured, organic meat from a collection of small family farms in Virginia. “Our local grass fed partner farmers raise their animals in a 100% pasture-based environment… By implementing rigorous grass fed standards we are able to offer naturally raised meats of distinction that are truly unparalleled in terms of animal husbandry and welfare, culinary refinement and flavor, as well as purity and wholesomeness.”

“By purchasing products from Tendergrass Farms you are supporting a growing number of small grass fed family farms in rural America that might not otherwise have a market for the meats they so proudly produce.”

If you can buy locally, that’s usually your best bet, but not everyone has access to organic, grass-fed meat, so companies like Tendergrass Farms (and Lava Lake Lamb and U. S. Wellness Meats and 5280 Meat andΒ  Rocky Mountain Organic Meats) are really awesome options.


Buy a Bird

Yes, I’m doing a giveaway β€” but why leave your Thanksgiving feast to chance?! You can order your very own organic whole turkey (giblets included!) from Tendergrass Farms right now! (And be sure to order by 11:00 am EST on 11/18/14 for delivery by Thanksgiving!)

Our Organic Whole Turkeys are proudly raised on family farms with equal space to roam both outdoors and indoors. They are only fed organic non-GMO feed that is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. These organic whole turkeys are never given drugs or antibiotics of any kind.
