Run by a goofy bunch of guys in butcher’s whites, Harmony Farms specializes in wild game and organic, hormone-free, free-range lamb, turkey, beef and chicken. And this time of year, it’s the turkey that brings people up to the little Foothill storefront. You can pay $150 for a free-range, hormone-free turkey online, or you can order one here for less than half that price, and not only will it be naturally raised, but it will be from California, too. This year the price is $2.19 a pound, more than reasonable for a quality bird.
But you’ve gotta order early, preferably by November 15. Manager Sonny said the turkey supply is tight, and they’re not keeping many in stock, so you need to special order. If you can’t get to the store, they’ll deliver.
If turkey’s not your thing, consider the superb lamb chops, the new Kobe-style Wagyu beef from Australia’s Darling Downs, and such wild game as quail, alligator and venison. And we highly recommend the frozen buffalo burgers and turkey meatballs.
