Bell & Evans Turkeys Available, Recipe and Videos Help Customers Prepare The Excellent Turkey™

Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania (November 1, 2018) – Shoppers can now purchase or preorder their premium Bell & Evans turkeys from select retailers across the country for the Thanksgiving holiday season.

According to the National Turkey Federation, nearly 88 percent of Americans will eat turkey at Thanksgiving. Bell & Evans, retailers of The Excellent Turkey™, offers excellent tips for choosing the best turkey and how to properly brine and roast the bird.

Bell & Evans turkeys are raised without antibiotics and fed a quality, vegetarian diet. They are bred to grow slower and produce a broader breast that is leaner than other breeds. The turkeys have 55% less fat and 25% fewer calories than other raw turkey as determined by the USDA. You have three choices of Bell & Evans premium whole turkeys – Young Turkeys, Brined Young Turkeys and Organic Young Turkeys.

Bell & Evans turkeys cook differently than most brands because they have less fat. Therefore, Bell & Evans created a cooking blog with helpful videos and a recipe describing how to brine and perfectly roast its turkeys.

“Every family in America preparing a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner wants a bird that is moist, tender and full of flavor,” said Bell & Evans Owner Scott Sechler. “Our turkeys come from the same nearby farm here in Pennsylvania Dutch Country that has supplied the White House since 1947. That’s the caliber of turkey Bell & Evans customers receive.”

According to a turkey taste test by Epicurious Magazine, Bell & Evans turkey rates the highest of six brands on look, flavor and texture.
