PUNGO — Family and friends gathered on Monday, Nov. 21, at Flanagan Farms to help with the Thanksgiving harvest of turkeys raised at the Pungo farm.
There is also a harvest shortly before Christmas.
Dozens of people come to help, volunteering long days to prepare the animals for sale at the family farm.
Killing and preparing the birds is followed by a feast for the helpers, as it has been for generations. [John Doucette, editor of The Independent News, is kin to the Flanagans.]
