Circle Brook Farm egg shares are now available!

Posted 7/10/2017 7:10pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Here's an exciting message from our farmer:

Hi Folks.

We are pleased to announce that we will now be offering an egg share.

This past spring we built a “chicken tractor”- a mobile chicken coop used for raising birds on pasture. We acquired a flock of laying hens; Rhode Island Red crosses. The birds are now beginning to lay and the flock will soon be in full production.

The birds are outside all day, where they feed on the grass and other plants and insects as well as the vegetable wastes which the farm generates. The birds spend the night on roosts inside the chicken tractor protected from predators. Their foraging diet is supplemented with milled grain that is locally sourced and non GMO. We have not been able to find a nearby source of organic feed in the quantities we require.

The cost of the share will be $85 for the remainder of the season (18 weeks) and we will begin deliveries the week of July 16th. This is for one dozen each week; if you need more than a dozen you may buy multiple shares.

Anyone who signs up and brings payment to the pickup site this week will receive a free dozen. Anyone who would like to try a dozen before committing may purchase a dozen for $5 for this week only. Enjoy! Farmer John

From Downtown Harvest:

We need to give Farmer John an accurate count of how many eggs to deliver this week. If you wish to purchase a trial dozen eggs for $5 on Wednesday or take home a dozen free eggs on Wednesday by paying for the 18 weeks that will start Wednesday July 19, please e-mail us at downtownharvestcsajc@gmail.com by Tuesday evening.

The eggs will be brought to our pick-up site in coolers, and Farmer John is planning to be there to meet members and answer questions.

Hello Everyone, So it continues to rain and I continue to worry; it’s an occupational hazard I guess…  We got 2 inches last week and thunderstorms are rolling through as I sit down t
