Farm fresh eggs are unlike any that you will find in the grocery store. The unmistakable taste, texture, and quality are, in large part, due to their freshness. When you purchase eggs from The FARM, they have been laid by hens within that same 7-day period whereas the eggs you pick up at the supermarket are typically a month old by the time they arrive at the store.
The FARM’s 100+ heritage breed chickens are moved around the pastures in mobile “chicken-tractors” to ensure they always have a clean living area, plenty of access to fresh air, sunshine, and naturally foraged foods. In addition to forage, they are fed a high-quality feed consisting of grains, protein, fat, fiber, calcium, probiotics, and prebiotics.
Several studies have found that eggs from hens raised on pasture have less cholesterol and saturated fat as well as a ton of health benefits compared to their supermarket counterparts:
- 7x more Beta Carotene
- 2/3 more Vitamin A
- 3x more Vitamin E
- 3 – 4x more Vitamin D
- 2x more Omega-3s
We take several steps every day to ensure eggs from The FARM are safe to eat, including meticulous flock and coop maintenance. We believe in transparency and are happy to show you around when you come to pick up your eggs.
Our flocks are made up of a variety of breeds and lay a rainbow of colors including white, brown, green, blue, chocolate, and other surprising colors like pink and speckled! Our chickens joined us in September 2020 and consist of Rhode Island Reds, Wyandottes, Cinnamon Queens, Cuckoo Marans, Easter Eggers, Brown Leghorns, Olive Eggers, Welsummers, Barred Rocks, Orpingtons, and Ameracaunas. We add to our flocks by hatching new chickens twice a year (in the spring and fall).
The FARM offers eggs for sale by the dozen online. We also offer our pastured raised eggs through seasonal egg share memberships. Egg share memberships (similar to CSAs – “Community Supported Agriculture”) are purchased in advance of the season. This guarantees that you will be able to enjoy fresh eggs each week. When available, these are offered in our online store.
