Where to buy local and responsibly raised turkeys for Thanksgiving – 2022

Thanksgiving is around the corner! At Be Well Indy, we are always sharing how you can support local businesses. One of the best and tasty ways to support local businesses is to keep your local farmers. This year, consider buying a local and organic turkey. Why? Not only will you support a local farmer, but the turkey will be better tasting, more environmentally friendly, and healthier. 

Local poultry farmers usually have smaller operations and take better care of raising their animals by giving them plenty of outdoor space. In addition, many of them believe in organic practices and don’t use hormones or antibiotics. Buying local gives you the ability to talk directly to your local farmers about their farming practices, feeding, and processing program.

You still have time to buy the perfect organic turkey right here in Indianapolis. Below, find our local, organic, free-range turkey list, with the sides (if you want) in the Indianapolis area.


Goose the Market

Goose the Market is one of Indy’s most popular full-service butcher shops selling pasture-raised proteins, farmstead cheeses, and more. Each holiday season, they sell all-natural, pasture-raised turkeys from Gunthorp Farms in LaGrange, Indiana. They’re available for pick up first-come, first, serve.
