Declining turkey sales this year bring struggles to local poultry farm

As Covid cases rise many families are skipping out on traditional Thanksgiving this year and businesses like Hiatt's Poultry LLC of rural Rochester are taking quite the hit.


GIANT fm News spoke with owner Michael Hiatt at his farm on how this year has been different. 



Michael says it's the worst year he's ever seen for the business. 



The poultry farm has been in the Hiatt family for five generations. 



Michael says most of his business from the farm is done out of town normally, but new customers are always welcome. 



Hiatt Poultry turkey sizes start at 18 to 20 lbs and go up to 40 lbs at $2.69 / lb for a whole turkey or $4.59 for just breast meat.
