Food Safety Issues/organic turkey meat vs non-organic turkey meat


Is vegetable fed organic turkey  better tasting meat than non-organic run of the mill turkey meat?

Hi Will,

Better is a subjective term.  In other words, what one person likes another person may find awful.  

I found an article that did taste comparisons of different types of turkey (including vegetable fed organic turkey) and they concluded that the factory farmed raised turkeys are probably the tastiest overall (they certainly are the cheapest).

Here's the link to the article:

Happy Thanksgiving.
