Posted by VFC Marketing Team on Thu, Nov 09, 2017 @ 11:57 AM

Lets talk turkey. We have so many choices this year! Fresh, frozen, pre-cooked turkeys, turkey meal kits, and whole smoked turkey. If you don't see any of these products below in the freezer or meat case, please ask a staff member for assistance (many in backstock)! 

Call ahead only if you would like to reserve a specific size of turkey. Closer to Thanksgiving Day, certain sizes and varieties may only be available in limited sizes and quantities. If you don't like turkey we have ham (info below regarding: bone-in, boneless, spiral cut and quarters, naturally cured and uncured).
