 Christmas Present Assembly

“C.P.A.” Normally, those initials stand for “Certified Public Accountant,” but during the holidays Davis & Langford CPA changes that to represent “Christmas Present Assembly.” The same team of fastidious experts that nail taxes down each year make awfully good elves. Exchanging their keyboards for  wrenches, they assemble newly donated riding toys, bikes, and play houses. Last year the team at DLCPA donated time to North Fulton Charities’ Santa Shop, where sponsored families and seniors are reminded of the joy of the holidays. Elves needed to join the C.P.A.s!  chip@johnscreekcpa.com

Georgia-raised Turkeys

The crew at White Oak Pastures is excited to announce that their 2018 holiday turkeys are now available for pre-sale! These birds are very special: they spend their time regenerating the soil as they scratch and peck for bugs and grubs. White Oak Pastures turkey production began in 2010 with only 500 holiday birds, which were brooded just behind the processing abattoirs. Their turkeys are certified non-GMO, Step 5+ in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and Animal Welfare Approved. The demand for their holiday birds has been overwhelming for the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. These birds take about 20 weeks to grow into a dressed 12-16+ lb turkey, which is much slower than the industrial turkey lifespan. In fact, commercially raised turkeys reach this same weight in about 8-10 weeks.  All of their poultry roam freely on pasture and are supplemented with a non-GMO grain mix. In November, the poultry processing abattoir will be busy getting many of these birds processed in preparation for Thanksgiving. WhiteOakPastures.com
