Lel's Lil Acre

Lel's Lil Acre The brain child of a single mother and her daughter. We love our hens like pets, they all have names and they eat an organic herb infused, Non-GMO and soy free layer mash.

Urban microfarm run by a mother daughter duo producing eggs, veggies grown with organic practices and straw bale gardens. We welcome people to come meet the chickens who lay the eggs they buy, and to see the gardens!

I know this doesn't look like much but I'm very proud of it! I reformulated an unscented bar soap that I could then shave and remelt into a liquid soap! I make these to order in small batches and started with Thieves because it's one of my favorites, but I can also scent this in peppermint, mean green clean, cherry almond and lavender! They are $10 for an 8 oz bottle with pump cap and are great as a body wash as well as hand soap! Message me what scent you would like and I will make it up for you!

The Egg Shack is back up with eggs but The Soap Shack needs a day to dry out and the humidity to break a little more before we put the soaps back in it! Can't win them all but you can have fresh eggs for breakfast!

I hate making posts like this but it is also such a blessing to have such support from our community. We are SOLD OUT of eggs until at least MONDAY again. Our original Ladies are over three years old and have slowed down their laying some and our Littles aren't quite yet of laying age and we don't have over 100 birds as Leli and I are the only ones here and we feel like having that many would be unfair in the care that they receive. We know all our Ladies by name and personality here and that is the way we like it. The Littles will hopefully be of laying age around October so we should see an upswing in our egg production then, but if you want our lovely eggs just message us and we will let you know as soon as we have any available in the order messages are received!

Much love and thank you for all your support

We are STILL SOLD OUT until Wednesday now! But I thought I would share our feeding process and share a picture of our farm hound Felony 'helping'. We ferment the Ladies feed since the benefits of fermentation don't stop at just people! This makes the feed easier for them to digest as the nutrients are a lot more accessible to them and many studies have shown that fermented feed gives a boost in intestinal health, forming a natural barrier to pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella. It is better for both our Ladies and for our customers! Anyone can read more on this practice if you want by using Google...all the articles that come up are great and informative reads and there is just to much to pack into one post!

Leli and I did some rainy morning baking today...these are absolutely to die for! Made with Garden fresh Zucchini, our own duck eggs, our home made vanilla and vanilla sugar...I have had many a person tell me these are far and away the best zucchini (bread, muffin, whatever vessel I happen to put them in) that they have ever had. Try for yourself at the Bellaire Farmers Market this week! We will be baking fresh ones on Thursday...these wont last the day ;)

The Soap Shack is up and running and I want to give a huge thank you to Hounds Hollow Farms for making and bringing it to me! We have a soft load with Thieves, Lavender, Lemongrass, Cherry Almond and Cucumber Melon but more will be added as I get them cut and wrapped. Soaps are made with an organic oil (Olive, Coconut and naturally sustainable Palm) and Shae Butter base with either essential oils or a high quality fragrance oil and are $5 per bar. If you know what scents I have and want to request one put out for you please feel free to shoot me a text!

For those that have visited my purple tent at The Bellaire Farmers Market know I keep my soap loaves whole and cut on demand so this is a bit of work in progress for me. I do have someone making me a new display that will make transporting bars easy so once I have that everything will be cut and wrapped!

Do you know about the lives of the hens that lay your eggs? Here at Lel's Lil Acre our Ladies are treated like pets, are never caged up (unless they are recovering from the occasional injury that happens) have a covered area that is sheltered from the elements all year round and get supervised range time every night before bed with pasture salad bars in their pen. We do no free range all the time because we love them to much to feed them to all the local wild life that wander past or fly over our property on a daily bases.

The lives of the hens that put those 'cheap' $1.99 eggs into stores have probably never seen the out doors and many of them spend their entire lives in cages. Even the more expensive eggs with 'cage free' on the cartons doesn't mean the hens live any better as they are still raised in cramped, dirty and dark sheds with no out door access and eat the cheapest, most processed garbage food that the company can get their hands on because they are all about profit. Remember that the garbage food that goes into the birds that lay your eggs means the nutrition value in the eggs you are getting is also garbage! Many people, distressed by learning about these conditions, pledge to eat only the "very expensive" "free-range" eggs and meat, which they imagine come from chickens that have free access to the outdoors and fresh air as shown in all those whimsical commercials on T.V. or the pretty pictures of rolling hills on the egg cartons.. There are some facilities like that, but in reality, there is no uniform standard for the free-range designation. No regulations exist that describe the size of the outdoor area or the number of birds allowed in a single shed, for example. A "free-range chicken facility" need only be cage-free and provide "access" to the outdoors through a door and into a 2 foot by 2 foot area. In practice, the facilities are usually windowless and overcrowded with only a few chickens who may ever be able to reach the door at all as the pictures of the hens that are clearly NOT ours show. Do not support these practices and buy LOCAL! There are many people right here in Bellaire and the immediate surrounding that are able to provide you with humanly raised eggs and meats. Our Egg Shack is super convenient, self serve and always open!

We would be 'ducking mad' too if we had to get store bought eggs but thankfully we make it easy with our eggs shack to have fresh eggs! No contact pick up and we will keep stock updated as much as possible. The girls are laying about 2 dozen a day so we have a pretty good supply. All eggs in The Egg Shack are unwashed and washed eggs can be requested by messaging or texting us! We plan on having homemade jumbo muffins out Wednesday morning by 8am for easy breakfast on the go! Thinking Chocolate Chip and Blueberry this week!
