Written By Guest Writer Edibles / Holidays Dec 21, 2011 Festively Free-Range: Where to buy Your Holiday Turkey SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestA group of turkeys at the Saanichton Christmas Tree farmFor many, a beautiful turkey is the key aspect of their holiday meal. But it’s increasingly becoming important for people to buy locally raised, free range meats and poultry. This includes animals raised without the use of hormones, antibiotics and chemicals, and those that are not caged in restricted and unnatural environments. When deciding to go for food that meets such criteria, those living on Vancouver Island can support the local economy and supply a healthier option for family and friends. Here’s a list of locations on Vancouver Island that offer organic, grain-fed, free-range, locally raised, and drug free options for your cranberry-smothered, stuffing-filled, gravy-doused Christmas bird.
