It is our pleasure to offer you a Big Spring Christmas Turkey, lovingly raised right here in Lexington, Virginia. Our turkeys are raised without antibiotics or hormones, and are rotated across our pastures for months.

Cooking Notes

Our turkeys are sold frozen and need to be thawed before cooking. Please allow 24-hours of thawing time for every five pounds of turkey (refrigerator method). For quicker thawing, place your turkey in a cold water bath and change the water every 30-minutes until thawed. Quick method thawing typically takes around a half hour per pound.

This turkey was raised on pasture, and will cook faster than a typical grocery store turkey. During cooking we recommend using a meat thermometer to gauge when your bird is ready vs a timer. Why? The beautiful bird in front of you has more healthy inter-muscular fat from regular exercise and it’s diverse plant based diet. That fat heats up faster than the protein in the muscles during cooking, requiring less time, and yielding a naturally flavorful and juicy meat.

Preheat your oven to 450°F and then drop the temperature to 350°F once the bird is in the oven. Your turkey is done when it registers a minimum of 165° in the thigh. Let your turkey rest about 15-minutes before carving.
