Specializing in delicious, nutritious eggs from humanely & ethically raised hens. We also periodically have pastured poultry (chicken & turkey), and fresh organically grown produce available for purchase.
Our birds are 100% free-range – foraging, pecking & eating from nature’s buffet – including bugs, grubs & worms! Our pastures are never sprayed with any chemicals.
Our chickens are also fed a high-quality layer feed. It is a whole-grain product which is coarse-ground, grown using organic methods. It is free of soy, corn, GMOs & chemicals. This high-nutrition feed assures high-nutrition eggs.
We have a variety of breeds, which bless us with a variety of beautiful eggs colors & sizes. When you open a carton of our eggs you’ll be delighted by the variety, but more importantly, you’ll be able to tell that these eggs came from chickens raised in a natural, wholesome manner vs. in a building on a factory farm.
