When I got to Hinck's Turkey Farm this morning in Manasquan, I got ticket number 97.

The number sign was on #17.

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, my family has been getting our Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys from there for a number of years now. And you know what?

It's totally worth the wait.

Where is your turkey coming from this year?
