Laying Hens

IMG_4518This week, we have a new addition to the Oxheart Farm flock: laying hens. We are thrilled to have 40 Buff Orpington hens scratching happily at our lush winter rye cover crop, and laying beautiful brown eggs. These ladies will provide for an Egg CSA share, eggs for the Mt. Horeb Farmers’ Market, as well as fertility for our fields as we rotate them in their mobile fence. We will begin selling eggs next week. Check back for details soon.
