Farm Fresh Eggs, Honey, range Chickens

Araucana eggs(rainbow layers)
We are taking orders for our range chickens now.  Our chickens range under the oak trees grazing and eating greens from the gardens. When ready these chickens will be processed by a state-inspected  poultry processor and then  fresh frozen before delivery.  Our neighbor John and Carol Jacobs members of the Albert Lea Farmers Market raise free range Black Star, Red Star, Araucana, and New Hampshire Reds.  Their chickens free range the farm and pastures daily returning to their coop nightly.  The free range grazing adds to their diet and overall health and benefits you with more vitamins, less cholesterol and saturated fat.  The Araucana lays  colored eggs  that range  from turquoise  to deep olive to shades of  brown.  John and Carol are also offering honey from their  farm.  If any CSA members are interested in ordering  eggs, honey, or  chickens please contact me bye email or phone and they will be delivered along with CSA shares.
