Our Story

Eggs and honey.

     The eggs from our girls, a mix of Barred Rock, Dominique, and Sapphire Gem hens. They have free range of our wide field, with a predator fence on the outside of it all Their coop is roughly 30×50, heated in zones, and lighted well. They are fully organic, under the 7 CFR 205.101(a) section, which is fancy talk for small producer organic. As we grow, they will be Certified Organic, but we need to be a bit larger for that label. We have limited eggs available, as they sell out frequently at the Red Wing Farmers Market. We do accept local check and cash, and in the future credit cards over this website. The cartons and flats cross a certified scale to be correctly priced. All our eggs default to a natural, unwashed egg, but we can wash large quantities of eggs for restaurant or other commercial uses if necessary.

     The honey comes from our Russian Hybrids, and is a very dense, sugary honey. They have apple trees, wild flowers, and the local fields to pick and choose from. The Russian hives produce a bit less honey than their counterparts, but are winter hearty and resilient to this climate. Harvest is fall every year, and supplies are limited. Most of our honey is sold in one pound mason jars with or without a JarWare honey dipper affixed to the lid. We welcome trade-ins for the mason jars that go out, to add a bit of sustainability to the project. We also sell solid beeswax bars (1 oz).
