When it comes to putting on a spectacular Thanksgiving soirée, we can all admit that the turkey is the most stressful part of the meal. That’s where Mary’s free-range turkeys come to the rescue.
Since 1954, Mary’s Turkeys has been a family-owned and operated business with three generations of farmers who know the ins and outs of what it takes to raise some seriously delicious birds. Even more than that, they also take pride in bringing the turkeys up in humane conditions.
The entire stock at Mary’s Turkeys is free-range, fed a non-gmo vegetarian diet, and raised without any trace of antibiotics, preservatives or hormones. The birds are also locally-sourced and call California their home. To take it a step further, Mary’s Turkeys also offers certified organic birds.
For an even more interesting way to talk about the history of the Thanksgiving holiday, you can also purchase a Mary’s Heritage turkey. These birds are based off the first breed that ever existed in… Read More
Apples and pumpkins and pecans, oh my! From buttery crusts to decadent fillings, it just wouldn’t feel like the holidays without the smell of a freshly baked pie in the air.

Think your classic apple makes others want to hide in the orchard? Does your grandma’s homemade creation have people trying to hunt down a secret ingredient? If so, this contest is for you.
First, bake your signature pie anytime between November 12th and December 31st. Then, get your masterpiece ready for its close and snap a well-lit photo to send with your entry. Usually, natural light is best. Submit your pic and the full recipe on Instagram by using the hashtag #BFholidaypiebakeoff or email us at email@example.com to be considered.
Keep an eye on the pie prize: grand prize winner will receive a $500 gift card and two runner-up winners will score $100 gift… Read More
