It was a perfect sunny Summer day when my kids and I met Farmer Quinton, the farmer behind Fulbuschel at the fresh farmer's market at Primrose Farm in St. Charles, Illinois.
We were there for the fresh, organically grown vegetables and made sure not to pass up the absolutely delicious locally grown green tomatoes (which we totally fried up in full on Southern style).
Farmer Quinton's produce was mouth watering. The tomatoes, potatoes, corn, lettuce and more exploded with flavor - the kind of savory you just can't get at a chain grocer. In season, it's definitely worth a trip.
But while we were there, Farmer Quinton also shared with us that they accept orders for pasture raised turkey from local Illinois farm Timberfeast. If you're thinking that nearby grocery chains are the only option available for Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas duck or Hanukkah roasted chicken or Holiday lamb, think again.
Timberfeast also offers eggs, wild salmon, stew meat, ground meat, sausage, bacon, bone broth and more.
