Our Story

We are a family-owned and operated farm featuring free-range eggs, pastured poultry, fruits and vegetables grown directly on our farm.  We also sell our produce and eggs at the Union County, OH farmers market.  This market runs from May through October in uptown Marysville.

How many hens do you have?  Currently, we have 140 laying hens of a wide range of different breeds: Rhode Island Red, Golden Buff, Barred Rock, Welsummer, Golden Cuckoo Marans, Blue Ameraucana, Cream Legbar, Easter Egger and Olive Egger.

Are your eggs Certified Organic?  The short answer is no. The long answer is our hens are truly free-range and get about half of their diet from bugs, grass and weed seeds that they forage themselves. We also feed them our kitchen scraps and a non-GMO layer ration to ensure that they get the proper nutrients they need to lay high quality eggs.  Even grocery store organic eggs are often from hens that are not allowed to go outside and forage.
