America’s beloved holiday is right around the corner and if you’re an eco-enthusiast playing host this year, maybe you’re wondering how to make the meal healthier and more eco-conscious without breaking tradition or throwing your non-green guests into an uncomfortable frenzy.
There are countless resources for sustainable, yet classic Thanksgiving fare. Let’s start with the anchor of this time-honored holiday: turkey.
ORGANIC WHOLE YOUNG TURKEY by Organic Prairie – $15 OFF NOW (Only $42.60 for 13-16 lb)
The story of the Rossman family and owner, Ron, is incredible. This is a simple, yet educated, man with a true emotional vision. Ron took his father’s farm from a small community organization through the rough commercialization years of the 80s to a pioneering establishment well before it was the “in” thing to do. Utilizing all-organic crops and rotational grazing, Ron has seen his livestock go from sick, confined and antibiotic-filled to healthy, content and illness-free.
