Fresh turkeys in Bucks - 2010
Who you calling a turkey?
Halloween is over. You know what time it is now. Thanksgiving time! I'm already getting lots of hits (reads) of my posts from last year on where to get a local turkey (or where to go out to eat on Thanksgiving). Here's an update for 2010 on where you can get fresh, natural turkeys in Bucks County. Not all are raised here (some come from Lancaster County), but they are all fresh and can be picked up just before Thanksgiving. And don't dilly-dally.

All in a big red Ford Excursion...

Guest blogger Rich Baringerexplores the great variety of pumpkins and how you can eat them too in this post.

PumpkinsWhen I was a kid, my grandfather, who was quite the farmer, would always make personalized pumpkins for me, my sister and our cousins. When the pumpkin was very small, he would use a pen knife to carve our names and a little picture-by just slightly scoring the skin. As the pumpkin grew, so did the carving. We always looked forward to getting this special treat from him. For those looking for a healthy diet, pumpkin is a great addition because it's low in calories and high in potassium and Vitamin A.
