Eggs for Sale
We’ve been working very hard at the far renovate existing structures. The chicken coop has been cleaned out, a new feeder installed as well more nesting boxes. Together with a constant supply of grit (sand), these improvements have boosted egg production to 18-22 eggs per day. You are welcome to drop by the farm to purchase a dozen. It’s best to call ahead, just to make sure they are available.
Our hens roam free on the farm, exploring its different areas. They feed on pasture, vegetable scraps and an organic grain mixture. Four roosters keep the hens inline, meaning that the eggs have often been fertilized. This being contrary to commercial hens who never see a rooster during their entire life. Fertilized and unfertilized eggs have the same appearance, nutrition and taste. These free range have bright yellow yolks and much more body than commercial eggs. They hold very well in a frying pan, taste terrific and bakers can often reduce the required number of eggs in a recipe. The eggs have very strong skins between the shell and the inside so if you decide to boil them, be sure to peel the shell before the egg cools to make it easier on yourself.
