Eggs 

$6/dozen

Pastured eggs from our heritage breed chickens in a rainbow assortment of colors. One of our most popular items. Our customers always say that once they try our eggs they can never go back. The yolks are a rich golden orange color and the flavor is incredible, just like the way eggs should taste!

Limited availability during the fall and winter since we do not use artificial lighting to force them to lay once the days grow shorter. As such, our eggs are a seasonal product available mainly during the spring, summer and early fall.

 

Pork

Pastured and rotationally grazed pork from our heritage breed American Mulefoot Hogs and New Zealand KuneKune Pigs. Our pork delivers incredible flavor, the fat melts in your mouth like butter and the meat is red and full-flavored. We specialize in pork sausage.
