The Best Eggs in the World

The laying hen population at Elmwood Stock Farm did not always look the way it does now. In the early days, showing up at the farmers market with six or eight dozen eggs for sale was nearly causing food fights from our customers: cutting line, waiting for us as we got there, and then pre-ordering, […]

It’s a classic family favorite dessert, perfect for when our pasture-raised hens are producing extra eggs in the springtime.

We offer our thanks to the early adopters of Elmwood Stock Farm’s CSA Farm Share subscription model for sticking with us while we adapted to better systems for everybody.

Time for Lambing, Chicks & Turkey Eggs

February went out like a lion and March came in like a lamb—not the normal way of saying this analogy, and we don’t yet know how it is going to finish. While the weather timeline skews early this year, the saying is still most apropos. Lambs will indeed be coming soon, so we are all […]
