We are in full Thanksgiving mode now that we are a week into November.
For most people turkey is the main dish for the annual Thanksgiving dinner.
Of course you can always pick up a frozen turkey at a big box store, but if you are looking for a fresh turkey we’ve got you covered.
Here are nine local turkey farms or poultry shops that you can pick up your fresh fowl. I called around for you to get up to date prices and information for 2017, but of course, your mileage may vary.
Just a word of advice: Get your pre-order in now. All of these places will sell out of fresh birds soon.
1. Capital Poultry
Capital Poultry carries both commercial turkeys at $2.09 a pound and Amish turkeys for $3.19 a pound.
Phone number: 313-567-0800 | Address: 2456 Riopelle Detroit, Michigan 48207
2. Cheech’s Chicken
Cheech’s Chicken is located inside the Gratiot Central Market. Turkeys at Cheech’s are $3.89 per pound.
Just a tip, if you plan on pre-ordering they really prefer you to come in person to put down a deposit.

5. Peacock Poultry
Peacock Poultry has been in business since 1928, so they obviously know how to raise a good bird.
Not only can you pick up your fresh Amish turkey at the retail store, but you can also get a ton of other great products as well.
6. Roeske Farms of Hartland
Technically Hartland Farms is located just outside of our tri-county region, but we wanted to include them in the list for those of you that live in the Brighton and Howell area.
The turkeys are free range and haven’t been given drugs to increase their size. The price per pound for a turkey is $3.35. The turkeys range from 15 pounds up to 25 pounds.
Phone: 810-632-5737 | Address: 2656 Clark Road Hartland, Michigan 48353
7. Roperti’s Turkey Farm
This Livonia based farm has been raising cornfed, free range turkeys since 1948.
These turkeys will cost you $3.69 per pound. They have birds from 18 pounds up to 28 pounds.
They have been taking pre-orders for turkeys since the beginning of October, so if you want a turkey from Roperti’s then you need to get your order in ASAP.
The bird will be dressed 24 hours prior to the day you tell them you want to pick up your turkey. If you are looking for a smoked turkey you can also order one from Roperti’s.
Phone: 734-464-6546 | Address: 34700 5 Mile Road Livonia, Michigan 48154
8. Steiner’s Meat Market
Steiner’s Meat Market has been in Warren since 1999. I know I’m suppose to be talking about turkey, but they offer so much more than turkey. Be sure to check out their weekly specials.
This is probably the cheapest place that I found Amish turkeys this year at $1.99 per pound.
Phone: 586-751-0751 | Address: 3691 E 12 Mile Road Warren, Michigan 48092
9. Vergote’s Poultry and Fish Market
