Once again and likely for the next few weeks we will be low on eggs for our Saturday market. Please come early if you would like to get some before we run out. Las week we ran out by 10. Also like last week, we will have stew chickens, chicken feet, and fresh farmstead cheese for sale.
FYI, chickens lay eggs according to the day length. In nature, this would prevent them from hatching chicks in the middle of winter when they would likely perish from the harsh weather conditions. On our farm it means we have fewer eggs when there are fewer daylight hours. Peek laying occurs at 12-14 hours of day length. Right now we are at about 11 hours and rising. As the days get longer, more eggs are laid. Your patience is appreciated.
Also in the news, we are getting a new batch of 300 chicks on the 15th of February! Stay tuned for photo updates.
Finally, SFF has joined Foodtree. This will hopefully be a great way to keep you updated on farm activities. Please check it out and follow us and other local food/farm activities there!
