This was the first Labor Day I ever recall working. I was on my own for most of it, but with only 13 turkeys to process, it wasn’t a big deal. John, a buddy from church, hung out for a while, just chatting, but then decided to plunge in for processing fun. He has been a game hunter in the past, so this was no stretch for him (though it may have seemed a bit unsportsmanlike). With his help, and a couple tips from Will and Sue (some farmer friends/mentors), the day actually ended earlier than I had projected…a FarmerSam first.
We still have one or two turkeys left. Most people don’t have access to as many refrigerators and freezers as we do, and so don’t have the option of storing a frozen turkey for two and a half months. If you want one, it’s not too late! Next year I will schedule the turkeys to reach processing weight the week before Thanksgiving, and will probably take orders in the spring, so stay tuned.
