Have you ever tried a farm fresh duck egg? Now's your chance! Duck eggs are similar to chicken eggs, but they are larger, richer and higher in protein. Many people use duck eggs for baking. Our eggs are collected daily and carefully hand washed and inspected weekly. We sell all eggs within one month of washing to ensure freshness; however, we are typically sold out every week!
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.
