Our Story

Cole’s Greene Acres Farm is a working farm that receives no taxpayer money via government grants or subsidies. We are a retired military family that has decided to take a different approach for the next phase of our life. We believe that, as Americans, we have given up control (responsibility) of too many aspects of our lives, including our food system. So, we’ve decided to take back a little piece of that control and live a little more closely to the land and give homesteading a shot.

  • Local, Farm-Fresh Brown Eggs (limited white eggs)

  • Delivered to a central location for pick-up (CSA Egg program – call or email for more info)
  • All eggs delivered are within 5 days of lay
  • Get to know and support a local farmer

Consider this study by Mother Earth News in 2007:

Most of the eggs currently sold in supermarkets are nutritionally inferior to eggs produced by hens raised on pasture. That’s the conclusion we have reached following completion of the 2007 Mother Earth News egg testing project. Our testing has found that, compared to official U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrient data for commercial eggs, eggs from hens raised on pasture may contain:

  • 1/3 less cholesterol
  • 1/4 less saturated fat
  • 2/3 more vitamin A
  • 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
  • 3 times more vitamin E
  • 7 times more beta carotene
