Wednesday Delivery Change Alert!!!!


Due to unforeseen schedule changes we will be running the Wednesday farm truck on Thursday’s now going forward. This is part of our ongoing effort to establish a schedule for a door to door service. For this month we will be delivering all the Wednesday drops on Thursday 08/22/2019. This in NOT a door to door service. This will be at your usual drop off sites. ALL paper mill customers are required to meet the truck at the clubhouse drop off at the appointed time as this is our last drop off at this location. We will be publishing a new delivery schedule soon.

ANYONE that can not meet on Thursdays please let us know via e-mail and we can re route your order to the next truck coming. Sorry for the inconvenience but it is all in an effort to better service all our customers.

Thanks,

We need your help!


Did you know that last week alone there were 4 meat recalls in the news for e-coli and salmonella? One of them was even from the Perdue organics chicken!!! Unfortunately we are seeing more and more of our market share drift back to these industrial producers as the general public is swayed by the misleading advertising and labeling of the industrial food manufacturers. That, combined with the fact that shoppers believe that anything with organic on it is good and safe makes the closing of more and more small farms seem like a given. The truth is that the industrial food chain is sick, full of lies and diseases and you are at risk every time you buy their meats. They may show you sunshine and grass on their slick marketing and labels but I’ll give you a 100.00 bill if you can find just ONE that will actually let you come see that pretty organic farm!!! Every week we come closer and closer to going in the red and having to shut our doors because of this consumer drift. We need your help! More than that we need your business to keep ours open. We don’t have Wall Street and the federal government behind us to keep us propped up while we send out false and misleading advertisements to bring you to the store. We can’t spend millions to make you believe were something were not so you will bring your dollars to our doorstep. We can’t sell it below cost and count on the USDA to prop us up financially. We can’t make ourselves trendy and the newest rave on the food circuit. All we can do is continue to grow and supply our products with the highest standards and provide good, clean and healthy foods for the consumers that want them. Please vote with your dollars and help us keep our doors open!

A word about eggs!!!


A word about our pastured eggs!!

Did you know?

1-You can’t always judge a quality egg by yolk color alone. While it’s true yolk color matters it can change greatly with the age of the chicken and the season! For example new pullet eggs tend to be paler and smaller that mature eggs but carry higher levels of nutrition. These “first eggs” come during the first 4 or 5 weeks of a hens laying cycle as the oviduct develops. While they may be paler than their more mature counterparts they are every bit as high, if not higher, in taste and nutrition.

2-Yolk color is but one measure to a good, healthy egg. Its easy to manipulate yolk color. The industrial egg industry actually feeds a dyed food product to enhance yolk color so even the industrially housed hens can have bright yolks. These eggs are often ninety days old when they hit the store shelves and very low in true nutritional value. What you want to look for is the airspace in the egg to be minimal, the shell to be hard, the firmness of the yolk and white to be stiff (with minimal “watery” appearance), a good yolk color and most of all they need to be from pasture raised hens that free range outdoors with plenty of fresh air, sunshine, fresh water, bugs and forage.(You know….like ours!)

3-A chickens diet is the most important factor in egg quality. Our hens are pasture raised, are fed and organic diet of non soy and non gmo feed and feast on free choice bugs and forage.

4-During very dry seasons a chickens eggs will not be as bright orange as during good grazing climates. Natural yolk color is a direct result of how much green grass is available for foraging.

Our eggs are ALWAYS non soy and non gmo eggs, are ALWAYS pasture raised, free range and cage free, ALWAYS only a few days old and are ALWAYS some of the highest quality you can buy!!!
