Our hens have a pretty good life! In good weather, they have free access to
the outdoors during the day time. Our hen house is movable to allow them access to green grass and insects instead of just a dirt yard. In addition to certified
organic grains, our hens eat garden leftovers (a.k.a. exciting
treats) and all the pasture grasses and insects they can forage.
As a result of their lifestyle,
they produce delicious and nutritious
brown eggs with deep orange yolks.
We have vegetable, herb and flower plants available for sale in the spring.
Our plants are grown in soil blocks. This is the same system we use to start all of our transplants for the CSA. Our experience shows that this system produces superior plants. Not only that, we make our own soil mix using composted cow manure from our farm and other organic ingredients and we believe that soil blocks contribute significantly to building a healthy soil ecosystem in our gardens.
We hold two plant sales in the spring. One is held in late April and one in middle to late May. Advance orders can be placed to ensure availability of what you need. For more information contact Emily.
