Why you should buy a fresh, local turkey this holiday season

Why you should buy a fresh, local turkey this holiday season

Many of us have holiday traditions, from the meals we share to the kind of Christmas tree we get and all of those special little details that make the season feel warm and bright. VG Meats is pleased to be a part of many families’ holiday traditions, and we’re grateful to everyone who chooses to buy their turkey, ham or prime rib from us. And hey, these products are really delicious, so we hope you feel just as good about it!

Once you celebrate the holidays with a fresh, local turkey from VG Meats, you’ll never go back—but some families still default to the grocery store out of habit or because of the price point. We’re not here to judge, but let’s talk about why you may want to get your turkey from VG Meats this year. If you have any questions, please contact us—or, visit our holiday website to place an order now!

High quality and high care

When you buy a fresh, local turkey from our family-owned business, you know you’re getting a high quality product that was raised here in Ontario. It’s going to taste amazing, roast to tender perfection and leave you with some incredible leftovers. We take a holistic approach that leads to regenerative outcomes, so you can feel good about what you’re eating. This isn’t the easiest or cheapest way to produce food, but it’s certainly the best way to do it. You can read more about our commitment to regenerative food here or ask our team—we’re always happy to answer your questions!

You’ll get what you need—not what’s left on shelves

When you walk into a grocery store, you don’t know what you’re going to get. A local bird, something that was raised far from Ontario, or in many cases, something that isn’t traceable at all. Or, maybe you’ll be able to find frozen turkeys but no fresh options. There may be a lot of turkeys in the grocery store when you drop in or only a handful of really small or large ones left—it’s never guaranteed that you’ll find the size you want. VG Meats can’t promise the exact weight of your turkey (that comes down to how much they plump up at the end of the season) but we make every effort to get as close as possible to the size you’ve reserved. And, if you need a little more to work with, we also offer turkey breasts, drumsticks and more to help you get just the right amount. Our team is available to answer questions, make recommendations and offer cooking tips upon request. We’re dedicated to customer service, so you’ll never walk out disappointed or unsure about your purchase. The bottom line is this: we’ll make sure you have what you need for the perfect holiday dinner, no matter what it takes. The success of your family’s Christmas dinner is as important to us as our own family meal is! (Really.)
