The deadline for turkey orders at Maude's is Thursday, November 14, so get to it! Choose from a Heritage Bourbon Red turkey from Singing Prairie Farm in La Plata, Missouri or a limited number of larger birds from Buttonwood Farms. Heritage turkeys are "bred specifically for their taste" and take longer to raise. Both types, though, are pasture-raised and hormone-free. The heritage turkeys are $8.10 a pound plus tax, and range from 11 to 19 pounds. The Buttonwood broad-breasted turkeys are $4.85 a pound plus tax, and range from 17 to 22 pounds.
