Buy them right here!

We are now offering limited quantities of our duck eggs for sale by the dozen here at the farm.  If you are interested, please contact us ahead of time to confirm availability, and make an appointment for pick up.

The current price is $12 per dozen, though this may vary seasonally.

Why $12 a dozen?  Our duck eggs are organic, GMO-free and soy-free.  During the growing season, the ducks spend their days foraging out on pasture, in paddocks that we move around from week to week.  This is an expensive, labor-intensive method to raise ducks.  However, we feel strongly that it is the best approach to bring you wonderful eggs, while at the same time keeping our ducks and landscape healthy.

For more information on how we handle the ducks, please see our description elsewhere on our website.  Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or need more information.

 

New Digs for the Geese

A lot of the goings-ons this season have been focused on refining and streamlining our how we rotate the birds to different paddocks.  The most recent step we have taken in this project has been to pull the geese out of the duck paddock, and give them their own space.  This will allow us to better utilize their grazing in managing our pasture.   It’s early yet, but it also seems like both species appreciate the move– everybird is much quieter now!

 

Back in the grass!

First day back on grassSpring is well upon us, and after a long Winter the flock is back out on pasture.  This is their second week out there, and they’re still pretty excited about it!

It’s an exciting time of year for us too!  We’ve planted a few persimmon trees, a handful of apple trees, a whole mess of Siberian pea shrub (a nitrogen fixer for building soil quality) and are expecting a bunch of hybrid hazels later in May.  This is on top of getting the vegetable garden going, renovating the blueberry plantings and trying to stay on top of the usual goings-ons of family life with small children.  Hectic?  Yes.  And, we wouldn’t have it any other way!
