Know Your Turkeys (And Order Before They’re Gone)!

September 27, 2018

The countdown is on – Thanksgiving weekend is just over a week away! Many of you have ordered turkeys from our Simcoe and Stoney Creek stores, and we thank you for your business. There are going to be some amazing meals cooked next weekend!

If you haven’t ordered your turkey yet, here’s a reminder of what’s available. You can ask your butcher for help deciding what size to order (just tell him how many people you’re serving and what their appetites are like!) but as a general rule of thumb, try to have around 1 lb of poultry (weight with bone-in) per person.

To place an order, please call us in Simcoe at 519-426-2000 or in Stoney Creek at 905-664-2020.

Fresh turkeys from Hayter’s Farm

As always, VG Meats is selling delicious, fresh turkeys from our partners at Hayter’s Farm. These are the same great turkeys you know and love – we sell dozens of them every Thanksgiving and Christmas season, with good reason. They’re juicy, flavourful and roast to perfection. Enjoy one with some homemade stuffing and all of your favourite sides – your family will thank you! We’re selling a variety of sizes at $2.99/lb: 6.6 – 11 lbs, 11-14 lbs, 15-20 lbs, 20-24 lbs and 24+ lbs. (These are just ranges for ordering – you will be charged for the exact weight of your turkey.)

Pasture-raised turkeys from VG Meats

Cory VG and his daughter Ruth have spent the past few months raising turkeys right on the VG family farm. These birds have access to fresh air and open space covered in plenty of lush green grass and clover. It’s a good place to be, if you’re a turkey, and we’re pleased to offer them this great environment. To learn more, watch this great video of Cory and Ruth moving the turkeys onto fresh grass. These birds are limited, so order now! They come in the 14-20 lb range and are sold for $4.99/lb.

Need more? We’ve got it.

If you need something to complement your turkey dinner or prefer another type of protein, we’ve got you covered. VG Meats is selling country hams, prime rib roast, pork tenderloin and more. And the best part? While our turkeys must be picked up in store (this is because they come in many sizes are must be weighed in and charged individually), our roasts, steaks, hams and many other products are available online. This means we can deliver it right to your door with our Farm to City program! Click here to order now, and please call us if you have any questions.
