Turkey Day Discussion with Ronny Lee of Lee Turkey Farm
Turkey Day is fast approaching, and restaurants and families nationwide are preparing to celebrate the holiday with family, friends, and loved ones. Many of the news headlines going into this Thanksgiving day holiday are focused on rising costs, inflation, and supply chain challenges.
Food at home costs have risen 5.4% over the past twelve months and full-service meals have increased 5.9%, which is the largest increase in the history of recording according to the Consumer Price Index.
To better understand the implications of how some of the macroeconomics of today impact the local supply chain, I reached out to Ronny Lee, proprietor of Lee Turkey Farm in East Windsor, New Jersey, to gain insight into how the pandemic and 2021 have impacted a local turkey farmer.
Lee Turkey Farm is a seventh generation family farm that raises over 2,500 turkeys annually, and also offers a wide array of vegetables and fruits to the local community. Their family has done so since 1868. Ronny was kind enough to take time for a remote video interview.
