Time for turkey

This article was originally published in November 2013

There’s a reason to buy your Thanksgiving turkey at PCC — you can be assured it’s healthy and raised with care by the Diestel family in California. The Diestels give their birds freedom to roam and a wholesome vegetarian diet. The result is juicy, flavorful turkeys you’ll love as the center of your big meal. We have three varieties: free-range Original, organic Heidi’s Hens, and organic American Heirloom.
