Fresh and local defines the ethos of the farmers who bring their products each week to the Saratoga Farmers’ Market. That commitment presents an especially strong challenge to the farmers who raise turkeys for market customers, when one considers what it takes to sustainably raise a delicious turkey from birth to maturity.
