If you want a bird that didn't get hauled from who-knows-where only to be brutally shrinkwrapped and injected with antibiotics, Brooklyn Based dug up some options for locally-raised, happy turkeys.

Tamarack Hollow Farms (a stall at Union Square) is run by a former vegetarian, so the birds are definitely treated well. DiPaolo's (at Greenmarkets all over the city) has big fat ones the size of toddlers. For a heritage turkey (they went extinct in the 1990s, but are making a comeback on small farms), try HeritageFoodsUSA directly.
