From year to year to year we have a pretty good idea of the egg and vegetable production, the weights of chickens, pork and beef. The one unknown, always, are turkeys.

We have had years when, after months of growing, the turkeys are 12 pounds maximum with some weighing the same as our largest chickens.

This year? Fully 10% of our turkeys were over 40 pounds. And the smallest bird was 24 pounds. Everything else was in between. 

These very big ones? You can find them on the menu at Woodberry Kitchen and Shoo Fly this week. I don't think they are open on Christmas Day, but the wonderful/brave chefs are taking on preparing these beauties.
