Heritage turkeys at Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard
Harvest Moon Farm and Orchard, in North Salem, will soon be taking orders for fresh Thanksgiving turkeys. In addition to farm-raised heritage turkeys, the farm is also known for its fresh-picked apples, produce, eggs, grass-fed meat and cider donuts. It also serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week.
Raised on Harvest Moon's “sister farm” in Hillsdale, the turkeys are antibiotic and hormone free and pasture raised, spending their entire lives outdoors, says Christine Covino, general manager of Harvest Moon. “Our turkeys are Broad Breasted Bronze, a well-known heritage breed raised for their superior quality and taste,” she says.
For the freshest meat possible, Covino recommends calling the store to reserve a turkey and arranging to pick it up a day or two before Thanksgiving. In addition, customers can reserve holiday pies, including apple, pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato and various fruit pies. Pumpkins, squashes, corn, beets, potatoes, eggplants, peppers and other produce are also available, all either grown onsite or sourced from neighboring farms.
Harvest Moon serves breakfast and lunch daily 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, our grass-fed Farmer's Burger and other assorted sandwiches and wraps,” Covino says. "Customers can take their food to go or enjoy their breakfast or lunch right on the farm."
