“We normally sell Boston Butts around holidays, but this is the first time we’ve offered turkeys,” said Bill Bailey, the group’s advisor.
Deadline for the ordering was Thursday, Nov. 18.
Bailey said they will start smoking the birds and butts on Monday morning and the meat will be ready for pick up after 5 p.m. at the Farm Bureau office, 487 W. Belmont Dr., across from Walmart.
Prices are $25 for 10 pounds of Boston Butt and $40 for a 14-pound turkey, pre-cooked weight.
The Georgia Young Farmers program is an educational program designed for the systematic instruction of young farmers actively engaged in the business of farming. The program is under the direction and supervision of the State Department of Education and the local agriculture departments in the high schools. The instructional program is planned jointly by the young farmer teacher and class members.
New members do not have to be farmers, or young, to join.
“If you are in support of agriculture, agricultural education, and the values it teaches our future leaders, then you can become a member of the Georgia Young Farmer Program,” said Bailey.
Dues for our group are $30 per person or $50 per couple. Dues cover meals and community programs and initiatives.
