Our Story

We have five acres in northern Black Forest, CO.  All of our birds eat organic, whole grain, non-GMO feed with free access to an oversized run.

Caring for your Fresh Butt Fruit

  • Eggs can be stored on the counter for up to a week. If you don’t plan to use them that quickly, it is best to refrigerate. Refrigerated eggs are good for up to 6 weeks. (One day on the counter is equivalent to one week in the fridge.)
  • Always store eggs pointy end down and blunt side up.
  • Be sure to wash your eggs before use.
  • Float Test: If it sinks, it’s fresh. If one end floats, cook fully. The whole thing floats, chuck it.
  • Egg shell color is determined by the breed of the chicken that laid it. The eggs are nutritionally the same.
  • Green Eggs brought to you by Cleo, Kate & Jane
  • Speckled Eggs courtesy of Sam
  • Cream Colored Eggs are Grace’s specialty
  • Brown Eggs provided by Charlotte & Eleanor
  • Terracotta Eggs are Poppy’s product
  • Dark Brown eggs are Vera’s handicraft
  • Cayuga Ducks lay black/grey/white eggs. At the beginning of the laying season, the eggs start out darkly colored and lighten throughout the laying season until they are white.
  • Ducks eggs are especially good for baking!
  • Low and slow is the name of the game when cooking duck eggs to avoid rubbery whites
