Here is a review from an user.
th plus year buying and serving HoKa fresh turkey for Thanksgiving and it’s hands down, the best turkey you can buy. I love not having to worry about thawing because it was never frozen (beware some grocery chains freeze the birds to offer again at Christmas but ask your grocer to be certain you are getting the fresh product, which is never frozen!). I dry brine with coarse salt under the skin after I do the Julia Child style dark meat removal (it turns into an easily sliced roulade). White and dark meat do not cook at the same rate so just remove the dark and do as she directs, and then they can be cooked in the same oven, at the same time to the correct done-ness for both. The now smaller dark meat will have greater surface area prepared, and thus will cook through to the much higher temp that tastes best for dark without making a dry turkey breast. Buy an in oven probe thermometer that alerts you when the breast is done to temp (don’t guess- that’s a fool’s game). My only gripe is that some years I have had to pick stray feather shafts before starting to season but was fine. and , I was less happy with that aspect but all around, this bird is so worth it if you want a showpiece that tastes great for your family. The quality is obvious. My husband hated having turkey for the holidays until I brought home a HoKa and he looks forward to Thanksgiving at home every year. If we are obliged to visit family for the holiday, he insists we do our own bird too, and is always quietly judgy of the pop-up timer mass produced poultry everyone else serves now that he’s had really great quality turkey farmed properly.
Very nice people. DELICIOUS beef, chicken, eggs and bacon! Seriously, the best! Doug gave a wonderful and informative tour of the farm and answered all of our questions. The animals looked very healthy and happy and well cared for. I can't wait to visit this farm again sometime. We will definitely be buying more tasty, organic food from GCC Organics!! Highly recommended.
If you are looking for reputable place to buy some organic necessities this is the place to go! The owner showed me around letting me see their process for milking and answered all the questions I had. The milk itself was perfect and you can not put a price on the family friendly service they offer! Highly recommend to anyone looking for farm fresh milk or eggs.
A wonderful farm! The owners were very sweet and gave us a tour of the property and even let us play with the goats. The honey is absolutely delicious, too! I definitely plan on coming back soon.
