EGGS! Sadly, we have been battling predators since we gifted our LIvestock Guardian Dogs to Crabtree Farms (since they were eating our flock). We are now down to under fifty layers so will not have as many eggs available as we’ve had in the past. We do have a new flock of Black Austraorps but they won’t be laying until the new year. Our pickled eggs have been in more demand than fresh so we are trying to find a balance to supply all demands. Thanks for your patience & patronage.
Farm fresh or pickled, there’s plenty to choose from! Buy unwashed, unrefrigerated, much loved, pasture raised fresh eggs by the half dozen, dozen, dozen and a half, or flat. Also get our rewards card where you buy a dozen dozen over time then get a dozen FREE!

Our poultry are raised outdoors on organic pastures. Their bottomless shelters, which protect them from predators, are moved twice daily. These twice daily moves provide them with a fresh salad and bug bar to accompany their diet of certified organic grains (no soy) and spring water.
We hand butcher each bird on the farm and cool them in a spring water ice bath before packaging.

MARKET DURING COVID-19
As we are an essential service, providing local groceries to our community and supporting our farmers and artisans for over a decade, we are proud to say we never closed in 2020.
To create a welcoming atmosphere, we are encouraging customers to place pre-orders when applicable, wear masks and attempt to safely distance while at the market. Spanning longer than a decade, our market has always had fewer customers shopping after 5 o’clock. Therefore, for a more spacious, less crowded shopping experience, we recommend attending during our second hour. Again, we encourage masks to be worn and they are available for sale on site.
