Are you looking for a local, pasture-raised turkey or ham for the holidays?

Wooster food co-op and café Local Roots actually started after a well meaning search for a local turkey went late into the night. When co-founders Jessica Barkheimer and her mother Marlene found themselves on a wild goose chase looking for a farm pick up only to discover their turkey had been shipped up to the city, it sparked an 'a-ha' moment: We need to provide a consistent place to shop for sustainably raised food. Today, they're 500 members strong, and sustainably raised turkeys from a local farm are available but limited.

Another great resource for finding local, sustainably raised meat, dairy and poultry is Local Harvest.

Happy Holiday!
