Paul and Harvey Larkin are working overtime this week. The brothers are shipping out more than 3,000 fresh, oven-ready turkeys from their farm in New Glasgow, P.E.I.
“This is by far our busiest week of the year and Christmas is a turkey season,” said Paul Larkin. “Little corner stores have them as well as the Loblaws and the Sobeys in Charlottetown, Summerside and Montague.”
Neighbours are also dropping in to pick up birds to take home.
The farm is busy, with staff working inside two refrigerated tractor trailers, where they select and sort the birds, choosing them one by one as they fill each order.
