“These yolks are amazing!” This is the comment we hear most at market, and we never get tired of hearing it! We pride ourselves on producing the best eggs available anywhere. Our yolks are orange and stand up high on rich, thick whites. They’re full of flavor and will probably make you wonder why you ever even ate bland grocery store eggs!
Why are our eggs delicious? Happy Hens & Excellent Feed.
Our birds are on fresh grass ALL THE TIME. Yes, they have a shelter, so they can come in out of the rain and blazing sun, but they spend their days eating bugs from our fields, scratching seeds between blades of grass, taking dust baths and chilling in the shade of our trees. They get to be happy chickens, and happy chickens produce excellent eggs. We now maintain two flocks of 2,000 birds each – one in a central barn system with 7 acres of pasture in Mars Hill that birds rotate through and the other in eggmobiles (made by Mobile Chicken House) that we move through another 7 acres of pasture in Weaverville.
Our feed is milled by the Sevierville Farmers Coop and delivered to us through the farmer’s coop in Waynesville, NC. We work with the Coop because they source a lot of their grains from regional farmers, are owned by farmers (including us!), and because their chicken nutritionist is able to advise us on feed changes based on laying hen age and weather changes, so we can provide our hens with optimal nutrition year-round.
We sell our egg cartons at our three Asheville farmers’ markets and wholesale eggs to dozens of restaurants in Asheville and surrounding counties. Please email or call for wholesale information.
