Help Us Feed 100,000 People This Thanksgiving Season

Every $2 feeds 1 person through Connecticut Foodshare


Our Story

Founded In Community

Founded in 1950, Miller Farms is a fourth-generation, community-driven business that believes Everyone Is Family. With humble beginnings selling eggs door to door, Earl and Margaret Miller prided themselves on listening to the needs of their neighbors and making time to help others.

The tradition lives on at our landmark location in Avon, Connecticut and beyond with our all-natural pet food brand, Oma's Pride.

Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday. Family. Friends. Food comas. And in the middle of it all...turkey! For over 70 years, we've brought people together with our signature Thanksgiving turkeys. Yes, over a million people have enjoyed a Miller Farms turkey since the 1950s. 

In 2020, we had to pivot and move the celebration and store online, while launching a new tradition called the Thankful Turkey, partnering with other multi-generational family farms to source the best turkeys in the country. 

Each purchase of a turkey and donation benefited Connecticut Foodshare, our local Feeding America food bank partner, to help alleviate the pressures of food insecurity.

Feeding 100,000 People in 2023

Since 2020, we have helped feed 200,000 people during the Thanksgiving holiday. This year for 2023, we aim to feed 100,000 people through direct turkey donations to Connecticut Foodshare, our local Feeding America food bank.

Join us in giving back by making a donation by purchasing turkeys for families in need, purchasing a Miller Farms fresh turkey for your family or loved ones, or thanking your employees by sending them a Miller Farms fresh turkey directly to their door.

All donations in the form of turkeys will be delivered directly to Connecticut Foodshare, our local Feeding America food bank.

Miller Farms Cares is the non-profit arm of Miller Farms and is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. EIN 88-3568237
