Times have changed at Oregon Thanksgiving tables.  The state's once-thriving turkey industry was wiped out by a massive recall of turkeys in the early 90's and most birds now come from out of state.  Jim Hermes, poultry specialist with the OSU Extension Service, says its still possible to buy an organic Oregon-grown bird, but you have to know the farmer.  And while some small producers talk of resurrecting Oregon’s commercial turkey industry, it’s not likely to happen.  Hermes says there aren't any processing plants here.
