2012 Midheaven Farm Eggs
An egg share is 1 dozen eggs per week during the veggie delivery season. You may reserve more than one egg share. Or you may take a half egg share, which will come as a dozen every other week. Price is $4.50 per dozen.
Our flock of 100 hens and 3 roosters hatched have begun their second laying cycle. They free-range in the farmyard and surrounding woods, returning to the barn to sleep, safe from night predators.
The new broods of eleven and thirteen chicks hatched on the farm in 2011. The hens are an interesting cross, and are laying eggs with green shells. You'll get some in your cartons.
Our hens run with roosters, so the eggs are fertile. The eggs are ideal for growing children, who need high-quality protein and whose appetites are naturally limited. Baking with truly fresh eggs is a revelatory experience. Cakes rise high, and you'll need to add a bit more flour to homemade cookie dough.
