A NEW benefit for
DuPage County Farm Bureau Members
Get your farm-fresh Thanksgiving Turkey
Turkeys will come fresh from HoKa Farms.
A little about HoKa: The Ho-Ka Turkeys are grown on the Kauffman family farm in DeKalb County, where the one day old poults are brooded in one of the temperature controlled starting sheds. They are soon changed to open, airy sheds to prepare the birds for their move to open range when they are five weeks old.The birds are grown on a low energy feed which causes them to take a bit longer to mature but gives more flavorful meat. The major feed ingredient corn, is grown on our farm. The birds are never fed hormones or antibiotics for growth promotion.Probably the most important factor that insures high quality is the tender loving care these birds get during the time they are on the farm. The same people handle these birds from day one, through all of the process to delivering of the dressed product. This fact encourages us to do the very best, every day to produce a bird that we can sell with pride.
Delivery and pick-up will be on Tuesday, November 24th
. Please note, there will be a small afternoon window for pick up since the turkeys are coming fresh. We will call you the week before to let you know the pick-up time.
Order Deadline is Thursday, November 19th
Turkeys come in ranges of 14-23 lbs. Cost is $2.50 per lb. You will bring your payment with you the day of pick up (cash or check only) and will be charged based on the actual full pound weight of your turkey.

Sign and Drive Ends Bond Card Offer
In August, Govenor Quinn signed a "Sign and Drive" law ending the practice of posting a driver's license as bail for traffic citations. Therefore, the Farm Bureau no longer offers bail bond cards as a member benefit. Previous law required a license to be posted as bail for certain traffic offenses. Now, a motorist's signature on the citation acts as a guarantee of compliance with the terms of citation.
