Penn State Poultry Science Club Accepting Turkey Harvest Preorders

Update, October 29: The Poultry Science Club is no longer accepting orders for this year’s sale, according to advisor Phillip J Clauer. They’re out of birds!

Original Story: The Penn State Poultry Science Club is now accepting orders for its annual turkey harvest. Each fall, the club hosts a fresh-dressed turkey sale as its main fundraiser.

“The turkey harvest is our club’s largest fundraising event of the year,” treasurer Sophie Bianchi said. “It’s a student-led sale, and we’re a part of the harvesting, processing, and packaging stages of preparing Thanksgiving turkeys for the community.”

Turkeys are raised and processed by students at the Poultry Education and Research Center and can be purchased for a flat rate of $40. Turkey carcasses with blemishes such as missing wings or trims in the skin will be sold for $30 when available.

Only two turkeys can be ordered per person, and about 350 will be up for grabs. The average weight is between 18 and 23 pounds.

Birds sell out quickly, so folks must fill out a pre-order form to claim their spot. Once turkeys are sold out, a waiting list is formed. Last year, nearly 30 people were able to purchase turkeys off of the list.

Turkey can be picked up in 30-minute time slots on Sunday, November 21, or Monday, November 22 at a designated pick-up site — just in time for Thanksgiving.

Buyers will drive up to the site, show their email confirmation, and pay by cash or check. Credit card payments will not be accepted.
