Where’s your turkey coming from this Thanksgiving?
A Pilgrim hunts for turkey for the “first Thanksgiving” as dramatized in this re-enactment, courtesy of the Department of Agriculture’s 1930 film: The Turkey Business. (No comment on the historical accuracy of this footage.)

So what’s your turkey source? Store bought, hunted, a CSA/farm-share, self-raised, or do you just order it off the restaurant menu?
