Where to buy a turkey in October???

That wine tasting might have you thinking about your Thanksgiving dinner table….Ah! The perennial problem of where to find a turkey a month before our American brethren celebrate their Day of Thanks. DML Board member, Hugh Morgan has tackled the subject handily and talks turkey, including where to find said bird.
