We Have Organic, Soy-Free Eggs

Our eggs come in a number of colors and sizes. We try to feed our hens well so they can produce better eggs.

If you are looking for high quality eggs, we have eggs for sale. Our chickens are a mixed flock of heritage birds: Ameraucana, Buff Orpingtons, Danish Brown Leghorns, Buff Brahams, and Red Rock Cross. This means the egg shells are brown, white and blue.

We feed the chickens certified organic whole grains and peas from Fieldstone Granary and from local suppliers that do not spray. We supplement the chicken’s diet with kelp, oyster shells, sea salt, dolomite lime and kitchen scraps. Occasionally, the chickens get a feast of offal when we slaughter a hog. The chickens are NOT fed any soy products. During the winter the chickens are confined to a greenhouse where they can get sprouted grains, peas and sleepy bugs. During the summer the chickens are free range and get a variety of herbs, forbs, grasses and insects.

We have a small flock so there is only about two to three dozen eggs produced each day, so our egg numbers are limited. We are selling the eggs for $5.00 per dozen. Cash only. We recycle egg cartons, so please bring your old egg cartons.

  1. congratulations to your egg production!
    That sounds to me like a healthy egg, and most of all I like the pricing: too many producers are too shy (or too lazy to figure out their real cost?) to ask for a fair price.
    I wish you you dozens of sales!!

  2. Actually, it was surprising how much the eggs cost to produce. Making quality eggs is expensive and we did not want to cut any corners.

  4. You pay more in the store…and there’s a much larger carbon footprint:)
    YAY! for you:)

  5. Hi Melanie,

    Roosters make a lot of noise. Most towns and cities that allow backyard hens don’t allow roosters. Without a rooster eggs are infertile. In general, we get chicks from a hatchery. The males are eaten but you can get sexed chicks. Usually there is an extra cost. This year, we had a broody hen hatch out three chicks. We got the fertile eggs from a neighbor.

  6. We do not use artificial light during the winter so our hens are not laying at this time of year. When spring comes we will have eggs again. We are not a farm. We are at GO BOX Storage, 2853 Bowers Place in Kamloops.
