Our chickens produce fresh healthy eggs.  Chickens are fed organic, no soy, no GMO feed.  We also do not use antibiotics or supplements.  Chickens roam freely on 16 acres and our feathered friends are cared for as pets.

Flock of Kindness and responsibility

Our  23 year old daughter, Lily,  is profoundly deaf .  The farm animals are Lily’s responsibility and joy.  She is the mother hen of all our pets-dogs, cats, bunnies, chickens.  She loves animals and is happiest when she is tending to her flock.  She is selling eggs to cover the cost of chicken feed.  

Lily and her chickens speak the same language.  She  gives treats when she approves of their antics and signs her disapproval when she doesn’t. She is currently teaching the chickens to hop on her back or lap when she bends down.    They return her attention in kindness by producing eggs…a whole lot of eggs.  




How to Store Fresh Eggs

Because your freshly laid eggs are processed differently than commercial eggs, they also need to be stored differently.

Freshly laid eggs are good up to three months starting from the day they have been laid.  However, the freshness of your eggs is only as good as your storage method.

Your freshly laid eggs are stored much differently than those you might buy at the grocery store. Eggs you buy from the store can be up to 8 weeks old when purchased and only remain fresh for around a month if they are refrigerated.

Fresh backyard eggs on the other hand are not typically put through a washing process like store bought eggs, so they still contain their natural protective coating.

These eggs can be kept on the countertop at room temperature for around 3 weeks given the weather is not exceptionally hot. After these three weeks the eggs should be placed in one of several various storage methods.

  • Fridge: Refrigerating your fresh eggs will give you an additional 3-4 weeks in terms of freshness. Although your eggs will keep for much longer than 4 weeks, you can expect them to dry out and lose their taste.

  • Cold Storage: Those who cannot access or do not have room to refrigerate their eggs can revert to cold storage. Cold storage consists of keeping your fresh eggs at a temperature of around 50°F. The area in which you store your eggs should be as dry as possible. This method allows for up to three months of storage.
