The Eggmobile

 

Fairview—Springhill Farms

Over the years, we have taken different approaches as to how we raise our chickens in order to have eggs to sell. The most sustainable method we have found is to let the chickens free range around the farm. The hens still need some purchased feeds in order to produce a lot of eggs to sell. As the price of chicken feed is now more than what the eggs are worth we’ve decided to not make egg sales a focal point of our chicken raising activities. We will still offer eggs to sell but only when we have a surplus beyond what our family can use.  This way we won’t have to purchase so much expensive chicken feed and can instead rely more on our own farm’s internal resources to feed the hens.
