Have you ever had farm fresh eggs before? What about an egg from a Barred Rock Chicken? Now is your chance! Although we cannot determine which egg comes from which specific chicken, we have a wide range of different breeds and can ensure that every carton has several different kinds of chicken eggs in it.
We sell eggs by the dozen. Even the smallest egg in the dozen is close to the size of a large egg you would buy from the grocery store. Allergic to chicken eggs? Try duck eggs! Many people who are allergic to chicken eggs can eat eggs from different types of poultry because of the different proteins in each.
We collect the eggs daily and bring them down to the lower barn. Fresh eggs can sit out for about two weeks before they need to be refrigerated. This is possible because a fresh egg has a thin layer of film that closes any pores of the eggshell. Once this is washed away, the eggs must be refrigerated. Once a week, we take the eggs that have been collected and wash them by using warm, running water. Each egg is cleaned and inspected. Any cracked eggs are taken out. The eggs are then packaged in egg cartons and labeled with the wash date and the sell-by date.
The laying hen, broiler, and turkey starter feeds are medicated. After the bird mature, they do not receive any further medicated feed, or any additional medication.
Yes! All of our animals are either free-range or pasture-raised. Every animal has constant outside access and fresh grass, plants, and water. Our laying hens and turkeys are free-range, and our broilers are pasture-raised.
We order our broilers (meat chickens) and our turkeys from the Arnott Feed Mill. We order our laying hens, ducks, and geese from Murray McMurray hatchery.
