The year 2020 was certainly been a year like no other. People were doing things that they never thought they would, like having drive by baby showers, homeschooling and ordering everything they could online. Whether you’re having a distant Thanksgiving or not here’s how you can order a turkey online.

When it comes to online shopping, people don’t need much convincing to buy clothes, shoes, pizza, pantry staples or even selecting a potential mate online.

But, buying a turkey for Thanksgiving…that’s as crazy as it gets!

Or is it?

I know where you are. You’re reluctant. It was hard enough for you to start ordering groceries online in the first place. We have to draw the line somewhere right?

That reluctance comes a from lack of trust. What if the said company where you’re buying the turkey doesn’t deliver a quality product? What if the turkey doesn’t come frozen? Those lingering questions will diminish once you buy your turkey from the right company.

The holidays are a momentous occasion. So if you decide to buy your turkey online, you should buy it from a company that you trust.

Perdue has been in business for 100 years, and while online shipping is a newer aspect of daily business, you’ll find the same care and commitment to quality in everything you order.

The premium protein comes to the door fresh and frozen solid. You can watch a previous Perdue Farms unboxing that I did, here to see how things come packed.

Furthermore, if you have questions about your order, shipping, products or otherwise, you can contact Perdue’s friendly customer service team.
