Thanksgiving is nigh, and there’s truly no better way to celebrate the cease fire in casual Native American slaughter by coming together as mankind to kill and eat something lower on the food chain. But this is the 21st century, and we’re not barbarians. That’s why we’re making sure the turkeys we carve this year are organic, and we’ve got a definitive guide to where to find the most pampered poultry in Brooklyn.

We told you just what makes an organic turkey organic here, but the cliffsnotes version is that these birds get some fresh air, sunlight, and grazing rights before the big chop. Just to streamline things we’ve rounded up 13 lb. organic turkeys, which serve 8-10 people.
