Got eggs?

We are just about ready to officially launch our egg CSA! If you are interested in getting farm fresh, organic eggs every week or every other week please see our "Want Eggs?" tab at the top of this blog! We have a limited number of spots, so be quick. We will also establish a waiting list and as we get more hens coming into lay we will fill it accordingly.
I suppose I should disclaim my use of the word organic- we are not certified in any way, shape or form. I do, however, promise that our hens are probably the best fed darn chickens around. I buy bags of organic whole grains straight from OBPeoples bulk department and mix their feed according to this recipe at Greener Pastures Farm. This is a great website for feed and chick starter recipes if you want to make your own. We also feed them Organic layer pellets straight from our local feed store. If they get sick, we treat them naturally with homeopathic and/or natural remedies such as raw garlic, colloidal silver, grapefruit seed extract and your standard over-the-counter homeopathic drugs. I found a great homeopathic poultry guide that I've got saved on my other desktop, so I will post the link to that later for those that are interested!

  1. Kim, it's Jacob's mom from IA. Hope you don't mind me reading your blog. I found it when I clicked on your pic from Karrlie's class blog. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading it, particularly your ventures with a communal farm since we hope to have our own some day. Right now we'll just have to settle with the our five chickens and backyard garden in the suburbs of La Mesa. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through you. Can't wait to try your eggs!
