My usual Turkey Purveyor is out this year :-( Has anyone tried a Whole Foods Fresh Organic turkey?

We usually get our TG birds from a local turkey farm, and have never been disappointed. However, this year we have to scale down our dinner party size and therefore our bird sizes (one smoked, one traditional) but our turkey farmer does not have small birds now (I guess there was a run on small bird orders)
Has anyone ever tried the Whole Foods brand Fresh Organic Turkey? If so, how was it? (we have tried other brands and have been underwhelmed - Plainview, Empire, Murray's, Wegman's)

Check Sprouts too if one in your area. I got a recommendation and their pre-order pricing is pretty good.

Whole Foods' fresh turkeys are excellent.
A little pricey though.
I usually buy two, but only one this year since we're not having a huge crowd over for dinner.
We normally do one smoked and one traditional too.
It's been an ongoing contest between my wife and I for the best bird.
She roasts and I smoke.

Well I guess I’m the oddball, but we always get Butterball turkeys, no need to brine, but I do inject them with Tony C’s jalapeño/ butter marinade. Never had a complaint!

They are pricey compared to more generic brands, but after my 50c Amazon Prime discount, they come in about $1/lb less than the turkey farmer. :emoji_relaxed:

Willy Bird out of Sonoma CA is where I have gotten my turkey for the last few years. Very satisfied. You can get them through Williams Sonoma also.
