Heritage Turkeys Available at Harvest Moon Farm: 100 percent antibiotic and hormone free and are completely pasture raised
Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard is now taking orders for fresh Thanksgiving turkeys. General Manager Christine Covino says the North Salem purveyor of farm-fresh apples, produce, eggs, grass-fed meat and cider donuts is also a leading source in the surrounding community for farm-raised heritage turkeys.
Raised on Harvest Moon’s “sister farm” in Hillsdale, the turkeys are 100 percent antibiotic and hormone free and are completely pasture raised, spending their entire lives outdoors, Covino says. “Our turkeys are Broad Breasted Bronze, a well-known heritage breed raised for their superior quality and taste.”
Customers should call the store to reserve a turkey and arrange to pick it up a day or two before Thanksgiving for the freshest meat possible, she says. Holiday pies, including apple, pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato and various fruit pies, can be reserved as well. The farm also sells pumpkins, squashes, corn, beets, potatoes, eggplants, peppers and other produce—all either grown onsite or sourced from neighboring farms.
Open seven days a week, Harvest Moon serves breakfast and lunch from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Some of our most popular items are the Farmer’s Breakfast, which is bacon, egg and cheese on a ciabatta, and our homemade veggie burgers, grass-fed beef burgers and assorted panini,” Covino says. “Customers can take their food to go or enjoy their breakfast or lunch right on the farm in our newly expanded café area.”
Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard is located at 130 Hardscrabble Rd, North Salem, NY. For more info, visit HMOrchard.com.
