D & R Farm – Hampden
(413) 566-3708 firstname.lastname@example.org
I was raised on a turkey farm, run by my parent and grandparent for 48 years with a large processing plant and store. Now we raise our own turkeys and other poultry with no hormones, because we want to know what we are eating and want our friends and neighbors to be able to do so too! Turkeys are available fresh through Thanksgiving, and frozen thereafter. Price is $4.00 per lb and turkeys weigh 9 to 22 lb. Call to order – turkeys can be picked up at our farm stand. Order soon, we may run out.
UPDATE: Diemand Farm has stopped taking pre-orders for Thanksgiving turkeys and any special orders. They will have limited sizes available for walk-in customers only. Please visit their farm store to see about availability. If you have already pre-ordered a Diemand Farm turkey, pick up is on the farm Sunday to Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
Call or visit the farm store, open Monday-Saturday 7am-5pm, and Sunday 10am-3pm through Thanksgiving. The farm store also sells a variety of yummy foods prepared on-site, including fruit pies, stuffing, gravy (made with Four Star Farms flour!), cran-orange or cran-apple (also made with local apples) relish, butternut squash (from Joe in Hadley) and much more.
