Charley has a buddy who lives out on a good chunk of land where they will give raising chickens a try. We got to visit the chickens yesterday during his playdate.
On the way to pick him up the last few months I drive by a farm that has a sign out front that says Eggs. Every time we pass by, I write the phone number down and about a week ago I finally stopped PROCRASTINATING and called.
Yesterday we picked up three dozen eggs straight from the farm where the chickens run around happy as can be!
I am hoping to ask the farmers for a little tour of the chicken coop...once they realize that we are committed customers.
I don't do everything perfectly healthy in our house. I also don't do everything organic. But the two things that I am firm on are the eggs and milk. The little bit I have read and heard leaves me feeling better when I know that our milk and eggs have come from cows and chickens that are raised happy and healthy - not modified, shot up with antibiotics, cramped in pens, filled with hormones (that some say are part of the cause of young girls maturing faster).
So from now on we will be supporting a local farmer and enjoying farm fresh eggs!
