About 3/4 of our laying flock are the powerhouse breed Golden Buff, which lay beautifully rich brown eggs, but we love having a variety of colorful eggs so we also have a mix of about 60 rarer birds including the breeds Easter Egger, Blue Ameraucana, Olive Egger, Barred Plymouth Rock, Speckled Sussex, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Welsummer, Buff Orpington, Delaware, Rhode Island Red, and Black Australorp. This gives our eggs a lovely range of color and keeps our flock interesting. We sell our eggs at the different farmers markets that we attend and through our csa program.
What Makes Our Eggs Great
- Winter months spent in 3,000sqft high tunnel pecking through plant residues and deep bedding
- Spring, summer, and fall they are rotated through 8 acres of pasture, half an acre at a time
- Fed free choice non-GMO feed, and vegetable scraps year-round
- Roll-away nesting boxes keep the eggs clean with minimal need for washing
