Penn’s Corner Thanksgiving Turkey

What do you have planned for your Thanksgiving turkey this year? How does a free range, pastured, antibiotic and hormone free bird that’s fed GMO-free feed sound? It sounds pretty great to us too! Pre-order your bird today and cross that errand off your “to do” list!

We have two pick up days and locations:

  • Our Squirrel Hill location is at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer at 5700 Forbes Avenue.  Turkey pick up will be on Monday, November 23 between 4:00pm and 6:30pm

braeburncropBraeburn Apples

Grower: Dawson’s Orchards

Store: Keep them in the crisper drawer with a damp paper towel, or else keep them in perforated plastic bags in a cold shed or cellar. 

Apples give off a lot of ethylene gas, and so just one bruised and rotting apple will give off enough to swiftly ripen (and rot) the others. If you have any bruises or soft spots on an apple, set it aside for eating. Don’t store with the other apples.
