Nice article, Kristin! Being a Westerner, I had never heard of "Holly Farms." But it's an interesting part of your story and a good example of the constantly-morphing landscape of our agriculture-restaurant industry. Also, I'm not sure if I've ever seen a wild turkey, but the part about toms "drumming" and crowing exactly fits what I remember the wild pheasants doing in California's Central Valley when I was a kid. This short video shows a ring-neck pheasant crowing and drumming, but it doesn't happen until the one-minute point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O023HiF9I1U. I remember the drumming and crowing sounds being VERY loud in person.
