Our farm stand is open 24/7 year round - stop by when convenient. Contact us if you need directions. The mini fridge inside keeps eggs at the right temperature. Prices and a phone number to call for questions/comments are posted on the fridge. A "pay here" box and Venmo info are also inside. Bring $6 for a dozen chicken eggs, or $4 for a half dozen duck eggs.
To better serve our local customers, we are offering an egg share this year. You pick the amount of eggs you want per week (1, 2, 3, or 4 dozen) and the duration you want your share to last (3, 6, or 12 months). We pack up eggs for you and remind you to come pick up from the farm the first week of each month. For customers who eat a lot of eggs, this is a convenient option to grab all your eggs for the month with only one trip.

...a more nutrient-dense product.
Our chicken coop has a solar door that opens with daylight and closes at sunset. The chickens lay eggs and sleep inside their coop, but otherwise they spend their time outside, foraging over 20 acres for greens, seeds, bugs, and soils to eat. This access to an outdoor diet is what sets small-farm eggs apart from commercial eggs. Pastured eggs have more vitamin A, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and beta carotene compared to free range, cage free, or conventional store eggs, which come from chickens raised indoors.
they're not eating pesticides and neither are you.
In addition to being a more nutrient-dense product, you won't find any harmful pesticide or glyphosate content in your eggs. With non-GMO chicken feed and no pesticides or chemicals used on our property, our chickens don't pass harmful substances into their eggs. They are not eating the nutrient-poor, genetically modified, pesticide sprayed corn and soy that are the mainstay of a commercial chicken's diet.
two or three times as fresh as grocery store eggs.
Current USDA guidelines recommend that eggs be packaged within 30 days, shipped within 30 days, and sold from the store within 4-6 weeks. This means your “fresh” store eggs could be over 14 weeks old by the time you eat them! You will receive freshly laid eggs with your monthly share or delivery, so the eggs you eat will only ever be 4-8 weeks old instead of 14.
our small scale flock--with access to a natural diet and spacious environment, and with all body parts intact--leads a happy and healthy life!
The commercial egg business treats living animals as inanimate numbers on a profit spreadsheet. Egg chickens are raised indoors in warehouses overseen largely by machine systems instead of humans. A chicken typically spends her whole life in a cage the size of a sheet of printer paper, with her beak cut off to prevent stress-induced cannibalism, until her rate of lay slows down and she's shipped to a commercial slaughterhouse to meet a violent and stressful end. Or if she is "cage free," she is packed on the floor with tens of thousands of other chickens with hardly any room to move. "Free range" chickens live in warehouses with small access doors leading to a fenced area covered in pine shavings. These chickens never feel sun or grass in their lives. They eat a diet of cheap, nutrient-poor corn and soy. Do you think a chicken is happy or healthy living this way? Every animal lover should think twice about where his eggs come from!
a renewable product raised close to home.
Most pastured egg brands available in Michigan stores come from chickens raised in the South, where sun and warmth and daylight keep egg production levels more constant than in northern climates. It is great to support pastured egg farmers, but it is extra great to support LOCAL pastured egg farmers and build a regional food system where food is accessible, is not shipped thousands of miles, and is not vulnerable to supply chain issues. Food security, accessibility, and choice are increased when our food supply is diverse, local, and regenerative.
