Borrowed Thyme Farm and Rabbitry

We are a small free range, family farm located in New Egypt, NJ. Our farm has heritage breeds of chickens, ducks and rabbits. Currently the chickens we have are Rhode Island Red, Buff Orpington, Silver Laced Wyandotte, Black Austrolorp, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Dominques and Welsummer. Also we have a small flock of Ameraucana for the beautiful blue eggs they lay. Our duck flock has an array of breeds. We have Silver Appleyard, Welsh Harlquin, Saxony and a few Pekins. Our chickens or ducks don't receive medications in their feeds. The feed does not have ruminent animal by products in them. For treats, our chickens get oats, sunflower seed, millet, wheat, milo and other grains as their scratch. We also supplement with chopped hay in the winter. Chickens and ducks are free ranged during the day. They are allowed to exhibit their natural behaviors. Let a chicken be a chicken!!!

In the Spring, we will be hatching chicks from our assorted breeds, and will have extras for sale. Please check back for availablility.
