Cooking a fresh turkey

I'm getting a turkey from a local farm that will be killed shortly before I cook it. Does anyone have any advice for cooking a fresh bird? Should I brine it? Does it take less time to cook compared to supermarket birds?

I want to make the meat as non-gamey as possible.

Any suggestions/knowledge?

Thanks!
