CSA Delivery:
We are in the process of exploring offering a delivery service for our CSA shares this year. We will deliver to your doorstep weekly for a nominal fee. Only requirement would be that you have an ice chest that we can put the bag in when we deliver. We are still ironing out the details but wanted to see what everyone thinks about it. We still will have pick ups available at the farm and WP. Delivery service would be within 10miles of the farm. Let us know your thoughts.

Thank you to all of our new and devoted egg customers. We still have plenty for sale so come on down to the farm to pick up a dozen.

Many people ask us if there is a real difference in pasture-raised and free range chickens and eggs. This is a great visual of the difference. These marketing terms are so hard to keep track of so here is a little explanation.

Caged: Hens are confined to cages with a 67-square inch space each. They never see the light of day and consume a corn or soy diet. Over 90 percent of eggs in the U.S. come from hens that are kept in cages for their entire egg-laying lives.

Cage-Free: These ladies have more room than caged hens, since each is given less than 1 square foot. Still, they’re not entirely “free,” since they’re confined to barns and consume a corn or soy diet.

Free-Range: Allotted less than 2 square feet per hen, these animals have more space than their caged and cage-free peers, but they don’t get outdoors as much as you may think. Some seldom get to see the light of day and many eat a corn- or soy-based feed.

Pasture-Raised: These ladies are given at least 108 square feet each and consume some feed and lots of grass, bugs, worms and anything else they can find in the dirt. They are let out of the barns early in the morning and called back in before nightfall.

Pastured-raised hens also produce healthier eggs, according to a 2003 study out of Pennsylvania State University. In it, researchers found that one pasture-raised egg contains twice as much omega-3 fat, three times more vitamin D, four times more vitamin E and seven times more beta-carotene than eggs from hens raised on traditional feed. From an agricultural standpoint, pasture-raised eggs are often superior too. When hens graze, manage their own feed and spread their own manure, farmers have less work and need less equipment.

The biggest difference is taste. Fresh, pasture-raised chickens and eggs are so delicious.

Great use for our delicious eggs! Homemade Eggnog

▢ 6 large egg yolks
▢ 1/2 cup granulated sugar
▢ 1 cup heavy whipping cream
▢ 2 cups milk
▢ 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
▢ pinch of salt
▢ 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
▢ ground cinnamon , for topping
Instructions
Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together in a medium bowl until light and creamy.
In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the cream, milk, nutmeg and salt. Stir often until mixture reaches a bare simmer.
Add a big spoonful of the hot milk to the egg mixture, whisking vigorously. Repeat, adding a big spoonful at a time, to temper the eggs.
Once most of the hot milk has been added to the eggs, pour the mixture back into the saucepan on the stove.
Whisk constantly for just a few minutes, until the mixture is just slightly thickened. It will thicken more as it cools.
Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the eggnog into a pitcher or other container and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate until chilled. It will thicken as it cools. If you want a thinner, completely smooth consistency, you can add the entire mixture to a blender with 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk and blend until smooth.
Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and fresh whipped cream, if desired.

Store homemade eggnog in the fridge for up to one week.

I love your fresh chickens (and all the other yumminess in my weekly basket)! They are so delicious! Just took this out of the oven; roasted with olive oil and salt and pepper... simple is usually best. Let’s the natural flavor shine through. Thank you!!
