For our chickens: We feed no wheat, no soy and no GMOs, all corn is certified organic, field peas is our source of protein, and barley and oats round out the grain portion of their diet. Depending on the season we supplement their feed with ingredients like seaweed meal and flax oil.
We have a variety of laying hens of different breeds running around our farm. They are let out to roam at about noon each day and left to pasture, forage and bathe pretty well anywhere they want. If we need an area “chicken free” we have to fence the out rather than fencing the birds into one area.
Our customers rely on the health of our chickens, the taste and goodness of the eggs. Because of the rare and varied breeds of chickens on the farm, we have brown, blue, green, white, beige, speckled, and sometimes even purple eggs. We encourage our hens to hatch their own chicks. Every year a mom usually emerges from one of the barns with some young.
How many ways are there to cook or prepare eggs? We guess as many as there are for Bubba Gump to make shrimp!
