Pictures of Around the Farm.






Freckles and Sander

Just an update on Freckles and Sander. Both are doing well, Sander is really turn a VERY light brown... but still not white, whereas Freckles is all white with a few small black speckles on her feathers.....






The Egg Question



Everyone uses eggs. Everyone needs eggs. Eggs are a huge part of cooking, and of life itself. An average Extra Large store bought egg contains;  80 calories, 6 grams of Fat, 7 grams of protien, Vitamin A, and C, Calcium, and Iron. All things considered this is a very healthy food item. Now, The average TRUE free range fresh egg, of the same size contains,  1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more Vitamin A, 2 times more Omega-3 acids, 3 times more vitamin E, 6 times more Vitamin D, and 7 times more beta carotene! So, Why NOT get local fresh free range eggs?
