finding a local butcher/processor for 4h raised turkeys

Asked June 4, 2015, 2:06 PM EDT

Our 4h poultry project kids raised turkeys this year and the fairgrounds no longer assists them with small animal processing and we now find ourselves having to do it ourselves. And we are told that there are not any good options locally. How do we go about finding a local processor that wont charge these kids a ton of money for their birds but we know is safe and reliable. We are in contra costa county, ca but have parents who commute so are willing to look in the surrounding areas with in reason
