  1. That’s a pretty damn expensive turkey. At $6 a pound there 20 pounder would cost $120. Just for a turkey that roamed outside of the fenced area. Outrageous!

    • @ray. Thank you for your comment.

      Yes, this is on the mid to high end of shopping for your turkey and its for a particular quality. That’s okay in my view. Just because of the high price point does not mean it should not be offered to Harlem residents. If I were to decide to buy a free range turkey to help in celebrating my holiday, I would rather buy from a butcher from Harlem then head downtown to purchase. My thoughts are us Harlemites deserve these options as well. And we deserve the options of purchasing a turkey on a mid to lower level price point too. We are not a one size fits all community. However, we deserve quality options as well just like other part of Manhattan that already have this. Also, I looked online and the $6 per pound for a free range turkey is average. For example on William Sonoma or Dartagnan, they start at $7 or $7.50 a pound.

      Overall, if a Harlemite chooses to purchase a free range turkey and its in their budget. go for it and buy it at Harlem Shambles. If its not, there are plenty of other options out there for buying a turkey and it will be just as good-if not better. It’s up to the Harlem consumer.

  2. By far the BEST turkey that I’ve prepared thus far. Totally worth the price, considering that we’re supporting both a local small business and a wonderful regional farmer who invests in sustainable, hormone-free, and environmentally friendly farming. So glad to have Harlem Shambles in our neighborhood!
