It's that time of the year where families rush to purchase the largest turkey they can find.
"I am a holiday fanatic. I'm excited about Thanksgiving. You know, it's all based around food which of course being on a farm, we're based on food," says Jaclyn Jenkins, hen house manager of Great Country Farms.
At the farm, they had more than enough food to go around the table but most people took a trip to the freezer, where they picked out their biggest meal.
Briar's Farmstead helped out The Great Country Farms in providing them a surplus of turkeys and they said the quality is tough to find.
"You know, they haven't been frozen which is always a positive. It does make a difference on taste and like I said, they are pasture raised so it is more friendly. There are no hormones or anything like that," says Jenkins.
To complete the big feast, families purchased homemade pies, fresh cider, and jars of jams and jellies.
While it is an appetizing holiday, many believe spending it with family is the best part.
"I'm thankful for my health, my child Jacob's health, my husband's health and my family as well," says Diane Williams, who was picking up a turkey.
"Just getting family together and celebrating everyone being home and being together for the holidays," says Joshua Null, also picking up his Thanksgiving meal items.
No matter how large or how small the turkey may be, they say quality family time is the largest of all.
If you wish to wear off some of that Thanksgiving food in your belly, The Great Country Farms will be having Santa as a special guest this Friday and Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. before they close for the winter. For more information, click here.
