Diversity

Eggs from real hens and a real farm come in all shapes and sizes.

The best thing is that each different egg is beautiful and delicious, a perfect dome of nutrients and vitamins.

Remember that the world comes in all shapes and sizes and colors. And embrace that diversity.

adventures in the snow! ❄️❄️❄️

This winter has been a very cold and wet one. While you may complain (because who doesn’t want summer?) it is important that winter acts as winter should. If it doesn’t do its job, then the bug problems and tick infestations will be horrendous come summer (no one wants that) and the water reserves will dry up leading to brown grass an parched earth. So actually this winter is just what we need.
Anyways, the chickens find it amusing too… Below are some photos of them frolicking about.

Unfortunately, the cold and shorter days means that I don’t have many eggs….

2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

Here is a shout out to the millions of family farms all over the world, the backbone of food systems world wide. 2014 has been declared the International Year of Family Farming so make it part of your New Year’s Resolution to support local farms in your areas. To do this, join a CSA (community supported agriculture), shop weekly at local farmers’ markets, and look for signs highlighting local farms at stores like Whole Foods and Earth Fare. Without our farmers we would not have food on our table, so make sure to thank them by supporting them with your conscientious purchases. Happy 2014!

Inspection: ✅

As a part of our food safety plan, FOWL is required to undergo surprise inspections to guarantee that we adhere to strict food safety measures. We passed with flying colors; the inspector even remarked that our eggs were some of the nicest quality he has ever seen!!!
Look for our fresh pullet eggs coming this spring (a rarity)

A Big Thank you

I know I haven’t blogged in a while, and I sincerely apologize. While it is no excuse that the start of senior year has been busy at school and on the farm, it sincerely has.

However, I want to give a big shout out and thank you to all my customers. Because of your support and commitment to FOWL I have had a constant demand at both Rainbow Blossom and Harvest, as well as direct orders for eggs. I am so happy and excited to announce that for the first time I have had a constant demand that my supply cannot meet!! Therefore, look for updates on the new chickies I will be ordering to meet this growing demand.
What is your favorite type of chicken?
Any good egg recipes I should try??

P.s. I promise I will be blogging more consistently in the future— keep a lookout for fun posts on the turkeys, lamb, and our own new batch of baby chickies bred naturally at Freedom Run Farm!!

Understanding the Egg

Baby steps to success

Attention attention!!!!!!

Fowl will be selling their pasture raised poultry eggs at the Lexington rd location of Rainbow Blossom. After months of rebranding and reworking the business, which would not have been possible without the support from the Sacred Heart community, locals, and her family, it is so exciting to present locals with the option to purchase her quality product. Look for a vintage egg carton (3×4) and a logo that says freedom run farm. Any questions email her at eggsandherbs@yahoo.com
