Many cooks prefer fresh heritage turkeys from a local turkey rancher. Ask your local butcher or grocery store with a butcher counter for suggestions.

For SF Bay Area residents, this usually means a Diestel (turkey ranch near Yosemite) or Willie Bird (Sonoma County). Someone in Vermont should seek out birds grow from nearby turkey ranchers.

Kenji Lopez-Alt's turkey guide is a helpful read:
