Sing like there's nobody listening,

The Farm Studio was built in 2001. 😍

It was constructed by Rick and some friends from Sweden using recycled materials salvaged from a number of sites across Illinois. For years it’s been the central and cultural hub on the farm campus containing workshops, offices, lodging, and a kitchen.

Do you know the myth on how to tell what color of eggs a chicken will lay? πŸ₯šπŸ”

It's been said the best way to tell is by looking at the color of the chicken’s earlobes! Old folklore says that if your chicken has a white earlobe then you’re bound to get a white egg. Sometimes, this is true. But, it’s not always the case or we’d see red eggs from this sweet girl!

πŸ₯šThe color of the feet
πŸ₯šYou can’t tell - there is no myth
πŸ₯šIt depends on the food you feed them

How do you like our eggs? Today’s egg recipe: sweet potato and egg skillet! Yum! Here’s how to make this delicious warm winter meal:

1. Cut sweet potato into cube shapes.
2. Melt butter on a skillet over low heat and add in sweet potatoes.
3. To season add garlic, salt, and thyme.
4. Cook covered until potatoes are tender (around 5 minutes).
5. Add in either kale or spinach. We choose kale. Cook until the greens begin to soften, about 2 or 3 minutes.
6. With the back of a spoon make β€œegg wells” in the mixture. Crack eggs into each well and sprinkle them with pepper and salt.
7. Cover and cook on medium-low heat until egg whites are set and the yolk has started to thicken, but not harden.
8. Enjoy!

Ingredient amount for two people:
2 tablespoons butter
2 medium sweet potatoes, (about 4 cups)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups fresh spinach or kale
4 Trillium Dell Farm eggs
1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

There were some pretty good guesses yesterday to our question: "about how many bales of hay will our 16 sheep eat through the winter?"

We’ve estimated they may consume around 215 bales by the end of March!

You already love their eggs, how about lamb chops?! From local Trillium Dell Farm, these lambs were raised on green pastures with lots of love. #lamb #localmeat #galesburgil #eatlocal #pastureraised #grassfed Trillium Dell Farm
E. F. Schumacher, in the middle of the last century, wrote a book titled, "Small Is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered". I do not know if these folks have read that book; but, I can attest that they are practicing what Schumacher was preaching. When all you hear is gloom and doom, turn off the TV and see what is going on in the small places of the world around you, like Trillium Dell Farm. Small is beautiful and it is all around you if you merely take the time to see.
