November 19, 2018:
We completely skipped any type of fall and went straight to winter! Literally, it went from high temperatures in the mid 80's in early October, to record-setting overnight lows by early November, complete with snow and ice (even as I'm typing this, it's snowing)
In spite of unpredictable weather, we received 120 laying chicks in early November and they are brooding in our new high tunnel style greenhouse, which we've aptly named the "chick house" or "brooder house". These chicks should begin laying in April just in time for the opening of farmers market season.
We do still sell eggs directly from the farm all winter long, but about half of the hens are currently molting and taking a small break from laying. That means our egg supply is lighter than during the other times of the year, so if you find the egg fridge empty, we appreciate your patience as we restock as soon as the flock lays the eggs! As always, send me a text or call if you want to check on availability before you stop by.
We look forward to seeing you around town and at the markets again next year!
