Planning to have enough CORN & SOY FREE EGGS for our amazing customers can be a challenge. 

First off, there’s supply. So many factors can affect how many eggs a flock produces - their age, the weather, the feed, the sun’s angle, the amount of daylight, etc. And then, as chickens get older, egg farmers need to switch to a new flock, and the timing isn’t always perfect.

And second, there’s demand. We love welcoming new people to our community of farms, but when an unexpected large increase in egg needs happens, we always want to have enough to go around.

Some of you may remember the egg shortage earlier this year. We hustled and quickly partnered with some local neighborhood farms to make sure our customers had consistent access to pasture raised eggs. 

An unintended consequence of this was that we developed a new longterm egg relationship with Harmony Acres in Gap, PA. And this is awesome, since it allows us to more easily keep eggs in stock all of the time. 

I had the amazing opportunity to visit Harmony Acres last week. The property was just so beautiful. Here’s a photo, which doesn’t do the picturesque view justice.

From this point forward, the vendor for our CORN & SOY FREE EGGS will be listed as “Our Egg Farmers”. The eggs you receive may come from one of our two egg farmers: Wholesome Living Acres or Harmony Acres. 

We are 100% comfortable with this since both farms uphold the same exact standards. The chickens are pasture raised (like in the picture above). When the pasture is growing, they are moved to fresh pasture daily.

In addition to the bugs and seeds they forage, the chickens on both farms are fed the same GMO-free, corn-free, and soy-free feed. The feed contains a specially formulated blend of wheat, peas, barley, fishmeal, flax seed, kelp, and a nutri-balancer which has kelp, vitamins, and minerals. 

You can READ MORE ABOUT WHY CORN & SOY FREE IS IMPORTANT TO US HERE. With the exception of our pork (which is soy-free only), all of our animals are corn & soy free!

And, of course, the chickens are never given drugs of any kinds, including vaccines and antibiotics. 

The result of these stellar egg farming practices? The most naturally healthy and happy birds, the most orange yolks (without any colorants added to the feed), and the most nutrient-dense eggs possible.

An embroiled and heated family debate - Is a hot dog a sausage?

My family has a chat group. We share photos, life updates, stories… and sometimes we get a good debate going. It was prompted by my sister. She wrote, “Important question! We need you all to settle a dispute. Please let us know your opinion. Is a hot dog a sausage?” Bingggg. Bingggg. Bingggg. Ahhh… the sounds of a chat debate quickly ensued.
