Plastic Freezer bags ?

Post by Ontario Chick » Fri Oct 05, 2018 12:00 pm

The bags that the processor uses are getting thinner and thinner every year.
for years now I have used Twist Tie from Dollars store that work like a charm.
I should say worked like a charm, I have hit every Dollar store in 10 mile radius and I guess I bought the last of them last year, nothing but ziplock bags anywhere.
I don't want to buy a big roll of industrial stuff, we simply don't produce enough birds, but at a loss of where to go next.
Any ideas?

If I need some good plastic bags, especially the big ones for turkeys, I get them at the local feed store if I can buy some.
