At the Ypsi Co-op, we take pride in offering the best, fresh, local and regional foods. We wouldn't want you to expect anything less for your family's Thanksgiving dinner.
 
That's why we offer Garno turkeys -- hand-fed by Ken Garno, who mixes the feed himself from a combination of whole grains, fresh and dried vegetables and herbal supplements, including  kelp, which provides minerals and iodine. Back at the farm, Ken raises about 500 turkeys each year -- sometimes as many as 1000!

But don't worry: These happy gobblers have plenty of space to move around and warm shelter to live in before they land on your dinner plate. They're raised without pesticides or antibiotics.

 
Ken and his wife Bev bought the Adrian farm in the 1960s, at first growing feed corn before expanding to poultry in the 1980s and selling to co-ops in 1989. Their turkeys are now sold across Michigan. They also offer eggs, chickens and duck eggs.
 
The Garnos have several hundred chickens, kept in coops (heated during the harsh Michigan winter) with open-air runs. About 50 ducks roam freely around the Garno property.
 
Every Thanksgiving, you can pre-order farm fresh Garno turkeys at the co-op. These birds are fresh -- never frozen -- and can be had for $3.99 per pound. They vary from about 18-25 lbs, on average, and half orders are also available.
 
"Why do we do it?," Ken said. "We have an insatiable desire to give out truth."
