Here’s a list of some of the free-range turkey farms in New England.

The USDA defines “free-range” as birds “allowed access to the outside.” However, farms do this in different ways. Some farms let their turkeys walk and peck in a pasture; others let them roam freely in an outdoor dirt pen. Others keep the turkeys in outdoor cages, noting that the birds are still getting “fresh air and sunshine.”
