Blue Whistler Farm and NC Poultry Month

This month we partnered with #gottobeNC and local blogger Hadassah Patterson of World on a Table to promote locally raised farmers market sold poultry. Click to read her story about Blue Whistler and to get the recipe for NC Seared Duck Breast with Whiskey Glaze. Blue Whistler will be at the market with 5% off whole ducks & rabbits and 10% off ground turkey. They’ll have pork too!
While we’re talking poultry . . . the Turkey Meatball Panino at Toast is amazingly delicious. They kindly shared their recipe with us and we’ll be serving up samples! Come give them a taste, pick up some ground turkey and the recipe card and make these your next meal.
