Now viewing: Franklin Farmers Market » Photos » Pardoning of the Turkey
The Inaugural Pardoning of the Turkey is in the books! Children wrote letters and colored Turkey sheets requesting of Tennessee Commissioner of Agriculture Julius Johnson pardon Danny the Turkey. The commissioner listened to young children saying in unison; Please Pardon Danny! To everyone's delight, including a jubilant Danny, Commissioner Johnson pardoned Danny at 10 a.m. A Big Thank You to new market sponsor Herban Market of sponsoring this new market event. And of course, Sue and Adam Turtle of Earth Advocates Research Farm for raising Danny and bring him to market. Check out our Facebook page and website blog for more information about this fun event.
