Pasture Raised Eggs
We have about 200 laying hens. Our chickens are raised on pasture, which means they are outside all day (free-range) and have access to grass and bugs. We regularly rotate them to fresh pasture, to allow regrowth in the previous area and provide fresh grass and bugs. We also feed our chickens GMO-free grain from Green Mountain Feeds (the corn and soybeans in the feed are NOT genetically modified and most of the other ingredients are certified organic). They also get vegetable scraps from the farm (chickens love heirloom tomatoes, greens, cucumbers, and just about any vegetable). This makes their eggs very tasty and nutritious, with deep yellow/orange yolks.
Our eggs are available in our farm store (607 Elm Street, Dartmouth, MA) from June through November, at the Pawtucket Wintertime Market (Nov. - May; Saturdays from 9-1), and year round at Farm and Coast Market in Padanaram Village. We sell our eggs for $6/dozen at our farm stand and at the farmers' market.
