Heaven knows what prompted retired engineer Thomas G. Jamieson to name his turkey farm near Pleasant Lake, Mass., after Robin Hood. The state of the art farm was well-established by 1939. Its products, "Cape Cod Cranberry Turkeys", were evidently luxury goods sent to connoisseurs all over the USA.[1] I do not know exactly where the farm was located.
