2018 Recap and Plans for 2019

Hello friends! First, thank you for your support during 2018 and helping it be a success. We wanted to provide a quick recap of 2018 and give you an idea of what we have planned for 2019.

Yes, this is a long overdue post – with how busy we were during the 2018 season, we had a number of items on our “to-do” list that we deferred and are slowly finishing up. To this add some emergency home projects (losing and replacing our electric service to the house) and here we are, better late than never I suppose.

Poultry – Eggs and Meat

2018 was the first full year of production at the farm. We expanded our laying flock to keep up with the demand from our growing customer base. We added a number of different varieties of hens. Some we hatched out ourselves, and others we brought in from local sources. Our goal is to produce great eggs, while also preserve genetic diversity found in heritage breeds. Most egg producers raise hybrid varieties which are bred for efficient egg production and feed conversion. Instead, we are working on preservation and selecting the best producing birds from our own flock to be self-sustaining.

    What a great update on the farm! So appreciate all you do to preserve heritage breeds, support locally sourced feed (and farmers), and raising awareness of the intersection of agriculture, economy, and environment. Your birds are by far the best I have ever eaten and the eggs are the only ones I can eat without digestive distress. It makes me wonder about the freshness of the eggs at the local store and what those bird are eating. I feel great full knowing that your birds are clean, healthy, happy, well fed and loved! I am looking forward to the changes you are planning and getting more turkeys, duck, goat, lamb, poultry, chicken and eggs in the future!
