maine organic turkey

Gobble, Gobble, Hey!

We happily chatted with Mary Pols from the Portland Press Herald this week, and enjoyed the company of Brianna Soukup as she took beautiful photos of the farm (not easy to do in November in Maine!). There is a linked article with "pro-tips" for cooking the perfect pasture-raised, organic, turkey that is worth a read too! Several of our farm friends and agri-community members throw their invaluable 2 cents in about perfect poultry prep!

We are also having a celebration ourselves - and want to invite you to participate!

Help us put your money where our mouth is! We make no secret of our commitment to quality food access for ALL! We want our friends, neighbors, and fellow Mainers to enjoy the healthiest, quality food that they can! We want to know what matters to YOU the most!  So, we are inviting YOU to help us count our blessings and really make them count! When you buy a Grace Pond Turkey this season, we would like you to email us with: the weight of your bird and the name of your favorite charity/civic organization. On January 1, we'll put those messages into a big hat - the winner will get the price of their turkey donated to the organization that they specified in the email! Thanks for helping us help others, and for supporting our family farm! 

Enjoy, Happy Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, Harvest Celebrating, folks! We'd love to hear from you about your Grace Pond Farm turkey!

Time for Turkey!

It's that time again! The field is full of colorful trees, yellow sunshine, and gobbling birds! We are currently taking orders for our organically certified, pasture raised turkeys. You can order them for pick-up here at the farm, or purchase one through our friends at the Farm Stand in South Portland, Farmers' Gate Market in Wales, and Uncle Dean's Good Groceries in Waterville.

Prices will vary at the retail locations, for our on farm pick-up turkeys are $5.25/pound. We offer three size ranges

 Small 10-13 lbs

the small size turkeys are frozen, harvested early to ensure their diminutive stature ;)

Medium 14-18 lbs

Large 19+

What Makes Our Turkeys So Special? 
At Grace Pond Farm, all of our birds are MOFGA certified organic. That doesn’t only mean that they get the healthiest, 100%organic, GMO free grain available from a small New England company (which they do!) – it also ensures that our birds are raised and harvested in accordance with very strict measures that ensure humane treatment from the brooder, to the field, to your table. We take care of them, and we care about them. The turkeys are out on pasture full time, with a mobile house for shelter; they sing their songs and eat fresh grass in our fields every day.  
“Organic” (rather than just “all-natural”) is more expensive, but we believe that the time, thoughtfulness, and start to finish quality, makes that worth every penny.
