We raise our own poultry for eggs. Our chickens are pasture-raised. From sun up to sun down our chickens are outside on our green pasture. They can forage on plants and insects, and have lots of room to roam. We supplement our chickens with high-quality, locally sourced, non-GMO feed from Ernst Grain & Livestock in nearby Clearspring, MD.
We have a pasture-based system and we practice rotational grazing at our farm. This means our chickens are regularly rotated to fresh pasture. All of our coops and structures are easily moved, as well as our chickens' yards.
The Farm is not certified organic, but we use organic processes whenever possible. We do not use any chemicals on our farm. We also do not use pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or insecticides.
According 2003 study out of Pennsylvania State University, "Pastured-raised hens produce healthier eggs. 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."
We hope you see the difference with our eggs. We sure do! Vibrant yolks and rich taste! Read more about our Egg CSA and where you can purchase our delicious eggs.
