Non-GMO Egg Shares
Non-GMO Egg Shares
The real deal for local, non-GMO eggs straight through the year.
Source anywhere from half a dozen eggs to three dozen eggs per week with us. Season length is 16 weeks, from Thanksgiving through February. Please note that egg share pick-ups happen on an every other week basis, so each time you pick up, you'll receive a two-week quantity of eggs. A small egg share is the one you want if you're looking for a dozen eggs per week.
Please scroll down for more details.
To the fullest extent possible, our animals are pasture-raised. This means they are rotated throughout fresh certified organic pasture during the months of the year that this is feasible, and allowed continuous access to the outdoors during the snow-covered months. During an average year, the chickens move to a winter barn sometime in November.
Chickens need a balanced diet that relies on grains to support their health and growth. We go out of our way to provide local feed that is not genetically modified/non-GMO. Our animals are never given growth hormones. We treat animals like ourselves, and would give antibiotics only in the case of a true medical emergency, never to boost growth or to temper the effects of confinement. There has never yet been a cause for antibiotics use at our farm.
For more information about our practices, please ask us.
