Eggs- Both Duck and Chicken –
Chicken- We feed our chickens all organic- feed and scratch, they also get grass clipping (we don’t treat our lawn for weeds or pests). The Golden Buffs lay an extra large egg but sometimes there are smaller eggs in the packages, we try to sell the largest eggs and keep the small ones for ourselves (but no guarantees on the size). The chickens are in a large netted pen that’s 25′ x 50′. We can’t pasture them because the hawks kill them. The feed does contain soy and corn so if you have allergies and are trying to avoid animals that have eaten these grains our eggs aren’t going to work for you.
Duck- The ducks are free range in the pond area which is about 3/4 acre area. They scrounge for bugs but are also supplemented with feed. The feed does contain soy and corn so if you have allergies and are trying to avoid animals that have eaten these grains our eggs aren’t going to work for you. We strive for all organic, but sometimes we mix in duck feed which isn’t organic because ducks do have different nutritional requirements than chickens and we haven’t found organic duck feed. Duck eggs are absolutely delicious, they have a richer flavor than chicken eggs and when cooked the yolk and white are firmer. If you’ve never tried them and you want to, contact me and I’ll set you up with a small amount to test out.
Home Made Soap – was born out of the desire to understand how our ancestors survived. JoAnne began learning how to make soap and render the fat that goes into it. She has used a variety of fats and when we have had fat that was harvested from the grass fed sheep, that also went into the soaps.
Hand made Lotion- Soap and lotion goes together. Once you learn to make soap then curiosity leads to learning how to create lotion. It’s a completely different process, but fun. All lotions are custom made depending upon the needs of the client.
Healing Salves- JoAnne has recently started making salves for healing from plants we are growing on the farm. The salves are great for small cuts, abrasions or rashes. Made from all natural ingredients that contain healing properties.
Firewood- We sell seasoned fire wood in face cords. We’ll deliver a face cord if you need delivery for an additional $25. If you like to use a smoker we have cherry wood that is perfect for smoking meats. If you have questions or need less than a face cord don’t hesitate to contact us.
