Diemand Farm prepares for Thanksgiving turkey season during COVID-19

Thanksgiving week is the most important week of the year at Diemand Farm in Wendell. But this year, the farm is facing unique challenges due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The farm, which raises turkeys, depends on a successful Thanksgiving season to keep the business running. But with supply-chain issues receiving their turkeys to raise, and uncertainty over how families will celebrate Thanksgiving this year, Diemand Farm is unsure how many turkeys they will sell this year. 

Connecting Point’s Ross Lippman visited the farm to see how they’re preparing for their busiest week of the year amid challenging circumstances.
